Tasty new eats in the central city for hungry ACL fans

Changes in Austin’s dynamic restaurant scene happen at break-neck speed these days. We’ve seen a couple of dozen new eateries open since many of you visited our city for the Austin City Limits Festival last fall. You’ll find reviews for a number of tasty new spots at austinchronicle.com/food/reviews (see a few listed below). And just in time for this year’s ACL, contributing writers Kate Thorn­berry, Gracie Salem, Kenny Pailes, and Melanie Haupt helped me gather the inside scoop on some of Austin’s newest casual dining spots. – Virginia B.
