We have Three

Can't post from my computer anymore. Can't figure it out with CH (it isn't adblock). This is from my phone. That's why I haven't been posting.

Anyhow, the sad thing is that I haven't been to ANY of those three!

One of the threads I follow isn't collapsing the replies I've already read...

I cannot expand the older posts on any board that I've read. Nor reply - tried rebooting a couple of times.

Also, I can't make an original post on any board right now - when I try and reply to a poster, it goes back to the top of the thread. I see many recent posts from others, though. Have I been banned or something?

Peached Tortilla is taking a while at 5000 or so Burnet Rd. I did see a small, oldish looking sign added that said "Tortilla Flats." Seems like I've seen that sign somewhere else before. I know that Ruby's BBQ still has an old sign that says "Fajita Flats," but I've seen the other sign specifically before.

That's what I expected - but when I checked into it it sounded like they are trying for something very traditional. Wonder what kind of fish sauce are they using on the som tam salad. I'll ask before I order it.

Birthday coming up, Best French in town?

Haven't been on in a few days, so it was too late to tell you what we had. Since they were 3 and 6 at the time, I didn't want to order too much. We shared the wagyu flank prix fixe, the chocolate mouse, and added two soups and a salad. No wine since I was with them, so the total wasn't too much. Was trying to keep the price down and was partly successful.

Sounds like your experience was just okay. Does one really get four lamb chops with the meal?

What about those "green" veggie bags that supposedly "breathe?" For second day air, I would be totally comfortable with a regular cardboard boxed, taped for shipment, with ice pick holes strategically punched.

Best 8" Chef's Knife $100 or Less

FYI - I used a honing rod for years and hated every minute of it! Switched to one of those Wusthof two stage sharpeners for something like $25 and have been happy with that since. The $59 Tojiro plus the sharpener would be less overall and might make you very happy. Then you can put another knife on your Christmas list! The technical info on the Tojiro is much more detailed than the Messermeister on CutleryAnMore, and I find any more technical info on an the Messermeister site.

They both sound like thin knives. I have two 8-inch wusthofs, one thinner and cheaper than the other. I always used the thicker one because it was more expensive (i.e. better). But I find myself reaching for the thinner one (or the santuko) lately.

Cookbooks that are more than just cookbooks.

I find that if I take it to bed, I can read some of the background info here and there before going to sleep. However, it is sort of heavy book.

Antelope - thanks again for an informative reply. I appreciate your posts.

Didn't know that Justine's proclaims brasserie - does that not fit? I have never been to Justine's.

Birthday coming up, Best French in town?

I had a remarkably nice time with my two small kids at Chez Nous. The servers were very polite and (luckily) Amysuehere was not at the adjacent table ;-) As conquer stated, it is just an old school bistro with a decent prix fixe. Feels the most French to me, but it isn't upscale. Having said that, it is my favorite. You can take the train as well - just a block away about.

NYC Chowhounder coming to Austin for the first time over Labor Day

Rptrane, my sentiments exactly. I typically don't order brisket after noon. Amy - good info about Live Oak. You just startled a memory that they're good late in the day. Doll......

Not a bad idea, jwynn. It might be impossible to control, however. Maybe we need to just start more hardhats.

Suzi's is way too saucy sweet. I don't understand the allure. But I expect that they will do a fine business.

Is Dang really that bad? I haven't been yet, but they supposedly got their recipes from some Vietnamese lady in Vietnam. BTAustin, isn't a green papaya salad supposed to be ensconced in fish sauce? I think so. Gots to be all fishy.

Oops - ignore my earlier reply. I didn't read down this far at first. Have a great time!

Maybe try Barley Swine. Franklins is about a 3 hour wait now. Other Austin hounds have more recent data? It's been a while for me.

Ultra-fresh scallops...sear, or specialize?

great - consider the sage, as it is sublime (and it adds but does not cover the scallops). Shallots would take it up a notch, too. I'm excited. Maybe a little too excited because I love good scallops.
