Several former Houston's restaurant alumni have formed The Lavaca Group and are opening Xena in the Great Hills Market at Jollyville Road and Great Hills Trail. Xena will be a casual, full-service restaurant with an eclectic American and ethnic menu, a full bar, and an extensive wine list available both by the glass and the bottle. Look for Xena in a brand new building at the end of November.
Legions of romantics will be saddened to hear that the Hyatt Regency on Lake Austin is closing the Foothills Restaurant this Sunday evening, October 29. Long a popular spot for romantic dinner and dancing a deux with a breathtaking view of Town Lake, downtown, and the Capitol, the Foothills has recorded many a marriage proposal in its day. The space occupied by the restaurant will be converted to banquet and catering facilities. Though it won't be available for romantic proposals anymore, couples can now get married with the spectacular view as a backdrop. Hyatt officials hasten to add that the La Vista restaurant downstairs remains open with their famous sizzling fajitas.
