Deliciousness at North restaurant in the Domain

The Domain is the polar opposite of hipsterville.

Agreed that North consistently puts out really great food. Easy to forget sometimes that it's a chain.

Downtown lunches

Haven't worked downtown in a few years, but is Athenian Grill still around? Always liked that place.

Also, RIP Mike's Pub. :(

Went this morning at 10:30 and the place was hoppin'.

Enjoyed a really standout cinnamon roll and a savory breakfast popover. This place is the real deal Holyfield.

Once Garbo's gets their wine bar open, and someone decides to finally get some real beer up here, Wells Branch will be holding their own.

Best Farmers Market?

^^^haha. Nailed it!

I'm definitely partial to the Cedar Park FM (in the Lakeline Mall parking lot - Saturday mornings). Plenty of veggies and meat vendors. Most people are there to do real shopping...big bags and coolers in tow.

Saturday Lunch

Literally every tex-mex place is open for Saturday lunch.

If the weather's nice, maybe check out Contigo.

Gumbo North of the River

Louisiana Longhorn Cafe in downtown Round Rock? I had it once and thought it was pretty good, and reasonably priced, but I'm far from an expert on the matter.

So, I'm a Boston 'hound, our board here created some "best/must try/authentic" threads...

I second Jester King as a second-to-none beervana experience. And if you're going to eat at Stanley's onsite, slowcooked's suggestion is a good one.

Not very far from the brewery is Pieous on Hwy 290. Very formidable pastrami and pizza place. Everything made in house.

Deckhand Oyster Bar

Loving the pics, and thanks for the Michelada rec!

Try their wings if you get a chance. This is really one of my favorite places in Austin metro. So much soul, so fun to chat with the servers at the bar, price is right, flavors take you away.

Oh Nice! I love that old corner building. So they're open now? Will have to go support them soon.

Your favorite burgers from 2014?

Thick, pub burger

Your favorite burgers from 2014?

Maybe it's just the nearby vicinity, but I'm a sucker for the burgers at The League Kitchen & Tavern in Avery Ranch (I think they have a Lakeway location too). Probably won't top any lists, but it's a solid, straightforward offering.

Your mission: get to downtown Round Rock for Fire In The Hole

A few pics from their quite formidable five-course beer dinner event last night (poached quail, shrimp ceviche, chicken liver PB&J)

G's Dynamite Sandwiches

Yall have got to try G's new egg salad sandwich they recently added. Delightful. Simple egg-mayo-dill recipe (maybe a smidge of mustard?). It's pretty much all I get there now.

Hanabi Sushi

If I'm not mistaken, that is Chef Choo's new(ish) place, right? I've always enjoyed his food --- Osaka Mansun, and his other place on Lamar that was great but in a weird location (can't remember the name). Great bang for the buck.

Hanabi does a good lunch too.

Eloping in Austin. Where should we eat after our wedding?

If you could change the wedding date to a Friday, Saturday, or Sunday, you could head out to Jester King Brewery, enjoy some seriously artisan beers (or wines, if you prefer), in a gorgeous setting, and split a really nice pizza from Stanley's Farmhouse Pizza. Probably a longshot, but it's pretty close to your chapel.

Other than Salt Lick and Trattoria Lisina, I don't really know what's in that general vicinity.
