Favorite Austin Eats

18 June 2013 10,817 views No Comment

Last week, I wrote a guest blog post for my friend Chris’ site — Republic of Austin – on my favorite restaurants in Austin. The piece was a response to the Austin Chronicle‘s recent list of “First Plates” — top restaurants chosen by their food critics.


Here’s a link to the post, which includes a list of the 66 restaurants that the Chronicle staff and I agreed on, as well as the 50 that were on my list, but not on theirs.

And here’s a complete list of my current favorite Austin restaurants (there are 116):
