Dear Editor, On a recent visit to Austin, I picked up a copy of The Austin Chronicle. I really enjoyed reading your "Water Tables" [Food, July 2] restaurant-review article when I got back home. The week your article was published, we ate at Shades and True Grits. We were seated by a bright and energetic young lady at Shades and were generally very impressed by the waitstaff. True Grits also had lively and intelligent service. We liked the food and family-friendly atmosphere at both places very much. We are looking forward to returning to both of these places on future visits to Austin.
