It's Sunday, but I'm still hungry.

I don't get it - why does "downtown"="closed on Sundays"? Aren't most of the restaurants downtown? I'm not trying to be difficult, I just haven't experienced this in other towns, so I think it might be a cultural difference that I'm not yet understanding. BTW, we just had a great meal at Belmont, on 6th. I wanted to order the entire menu. I will happily go there any Sunday. :-) Plus, there's a movie in the courtyard! Anyone else have an opinion about this place?

You're right, verily, I guess I should have been more specific. I meant, are there restaurants you LOVE to visit, that have good food and atmosphere, that are also open on Sundays? Because off the top of my head I can think of the following which are closed on Sundays: La Traviata, Enoteca, Asti, Fino, Castle Hill, Malaga, Jezebel, Driskill, Mirabelle, Blue Star.

We have a couple tried and true for Sundays, but one likes to have variety. The ones we have tried (and like) that are open on Sundays are: Vespaio and Sampaio (all the "aios"). Thanks for the tips though, I have heard good things re. Sunflower and Asia Cafe. Oh, another good food bet for Sunday is Madras Pavillion. Still though, I think we should compile a list of Sunday favs, just because it's not a sure bet that the restaurant you're wanting to try is going to be open.

I know Sundays are supposed to be for worship and getting closer to our families, but our family worships at the church of dining out. When searching for a place to eat on Sunday in Austin, we've been disappointed to find that a lot of restaurants are closed. Does anyone care to share their favorite place to eat on Sunday when mom (or someone) forgot to make the roast beef and potatoes?

Pacha's Coffee House?

They do have some small plates that are not typical Mexican or U.S. They seem South American to me, but I do not know if they are Bolivian or not. You could always give them a call...

What happened to Curra's?

They're talking about the one on Burnet. Dang it, I wish they'd hurry up and find a new place! We're hungry!
