Favorite Austin Eats

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):

Perla’s Restaurant Review by Guest Blogger Betsy Goldin Becker

I grew up on the Mississippi Gulf Coast and can’t think of a more satisfying meal than a plate of fresh local seafood paired with an ice cold beer. In lovely yet land-locked Austin, a meal like that is virtually impossible to come by. So needless to say, I was excited to check out Perla’s, hopeful it would help fill my homesick yearnings for the fresh and flavorful fruits of the sea.

It’s been so long since I promised Jodi this post on Lucky J’s, you’d think I’d forgotten all about the experience. Au contraire.
I was never really sold on the idea of chicken and waffles as a viable combination until I caught a Throwdown episode last year. Bobby Flay went up against a woman from Harlem who’d been making chicken and waffles with a recipe dating back to the 1930s. I was drooling. I was entranced. I was ready to move to Harlem.

Note on Tasty Touring Guest Bloggers

If you are a regular reader of my blog, you already know that I publish guest posts every once in a while — you may recall my brother Jeff’s ode to sandwiches, Tom being swept off his feet by Virginia’s The Red Hen, and Laura recalling her grandmother’s gift of gnocchi while preparing this unique dish for the first time ever.
Yesterday I discovered that I can invite regular guest bloggers to post their own blogs without me doing it for them. Be sure to check out the “Posted By” at …

Oh So Fino

If variety is the spice of life, then FINO has mastered the art of living.
I attended the Blogger Happy Hour hour in Jodi’s place, and when I showed up, about 30 people were gathered on the restaurant’s beautifully decorated outdoor patio – the kind of patio everyone dreams of having in their home, with sleek yet comfy furniture as Mediterranean-inspired as the menu. (When I mentioned at my next happy hour that I’d just come from FINO, my friend asked, “Is that the place with the great patio upstairs?” Yep, …
