Plenty of good restaurants in Austin. I think the Driskill Grill, inside the marvelous historic Driskill Hotel downtown is one of the best. Not cheap, but great food and atmosphere. Also, I love Parkside on 6th Street, in the middle of the downtown music scene. Great food, especially the sea food. Zoot is also very good - innovative menu, very fresh foods.
