Austin: Restaurant recommendations near JW Marriott / downtown

Greetings all.

I have a week at the new JW Marriott coming up in June. I will not have a car.

Looking for some good / unique places easily accessible in the area for lunches and dinners. I especially enjoy small, "hole-in-the-wall" ethnic places where good food is more important then appearance. I am not opposed to walking nor using public transport if it is worthwhile.

I will probably have a couple of dinners with colleagues, so some more traditional places with very good food would also be needed.

Thanks for any and all suggestions. I have had GREAT success with FT recommendations in Chicago so hopefully the FTers with knowledge of Austin are just as generous.

Cheers.

We were looking for a place late Sunday night before dropping off one of our party near the University and found http://www.freedmensbar.com/food. Our group was pleasantly surprised. Good food and atmosphere, albeit not right down by the river.
