yeah, i'm a challenging dinner guest, but options have become waaaay better in the past year.

are you thinking of BJ's brewhouse? they have a GF chocolate chip skillet cookie.

they do have a GF pizza option, although a lot of times i won't do that unless they make it in-house. otherwise, it resembles cardboard, and tastes worse :-D

yes, check the pizza section, where the pricer non-tombstone stuff is located. there are 3-4 flavors IIRC.

thanks for the info! zorba's has tons of GF options so i imagine this place would too as long as there's no pita.

yes on both counts! a little bleu and a few baby spinach leaves were my favorite additions.

you really can't beat the price, and when they're on sale, they are worth stocking up on.

best bakery for a birthday cake?

yes, i think he's talking about dream bakery.

never tried the cakes at that place next to cupprimo (ann's? someone's name) but heard it's good. spicewood & 183

those pizzas are a great product. every few years they switch up the varieties, too. i can't eat them any more, and miss them.

there are just way too many sushi joints in that immediate area: midori, osaka, momiji and a few others i can't recall right now. hope something else goes in there, and it sticks.

i currently live in 78729 so have been to noble pig quite a few times. the parmer morelia's is pretty good. will have to try juarez bakery & serena's.

we did scarlet rabbit over the weekend for a birthday party, and it was a disaster. to spare everyone the long-winded version, they bought us a round, gave the party of 14 a 50% discount, and comped the birthday girl.

although we didn't try it, the back patio looked lovely. i hope they improve, because i want to go back.

Where I have recently eaten in Austin and what I wish I can get

there was a tapas place in boston that i loooooved, and they also suffered from a similarly long menu (and their paellas weren't that great, either).

very cool that they have more specialized things, like the squid ink and blood sausage dishes.

so how did trying to get your kids to eat more cabbage go? saw a spring roll recipe using cabbage leaves and thought of your quest to cabbage-fy the kiddos.

Scarlet Rabbit

well, the birthday person really likes greenhouse and has a thing for alice in wonderland so...

at this point i just want to make sure we don't have a huge group waiting to be seated because they forgot about us.

i also expect settling the tab will be a PITA, but that's what happens when you're a big group.

What's for Low-Carb Breakfast, Lunch or Dinner? #4

oooo both of those sound great!

i'm grilling slabs of zucchini on the george foreman. they'll go with some random stuff in the fridge and pantry:

oven roasted tomatoes, various tapanades, a mozzarella log, a lovely chevre, leftover ricotta i stirred a bunch of herbs into, roasted artichokes, red pepper, cucumbers and baby greens.

love summer low carb eating!

what's the new one?

Scarlet Rabbit

hoo boy, are they having front of house issues, which you don't expect with a sophomore effort.

made reservations for a party of 13 for a saturday night birthday party. hostess told me they don't take reservations. read to her the facebook page, which specifically said they take them for parties of 6+. she put me on hold, came back and said oh sorry, we're new, let me arrange it for you.

i called today to confirm, because i'm anal like that.
the same lady told me there were no reservations on the books so why doesn't she do that now.

gonna call every single day to confirm, because we have people coming from all over for this, including a very pregnant lady.
