It's SXSW time in Austin again which means it time to declare the 10 best restaurants in Austin!
I’ve lived in Austin, Texas for nearly 20 years, and I have always been astounded at how varied and vibrant the food culture is here. While it is true that Austin has always had a lot to offer food-wise, the truth is that Austin has really only come into its own as true food destination in the last few years.
We have everything in Austin from the little hole-in-the-wall joints that you hope always stay your little secret, to high-end fare and quirky trucks and trailers, focusing on locally sourced products. Then there’s the cooking styles you’ll find: Ethiopian, American, French, Mexican but that just begins to scratch the surface!
Much has been written lately of the now-legendary trucks, trailers, and hole-in-the-wall joints, so this time we'll focus on some great high-end establishments. You know, the kinds of places where you can feel truly spoiled and have a chance to appreciate the finer things. So we at the Daily Meal have decided to sample some of the best and of the finest in Austin. Here goes…enjoy!
