Culinary Bucket List

Things only a best friend would tell you

Sometimes when you visit a new city, you have the luxury of friends on the ground who know you well and can give reliable recommendations about places to eat that would suit your particular tastes. They could also make sure you leave their city having had as authentic a culinary experience as possible. For this weekend, consider the contributing Food writers of The Austin Chronicle – Kate Thornberry, Rachel Feit, Melanie Haupt, MM Pack, Ivy Le, Jessi Cape, Gracie Salem, Wes Marshall, and me – as your local BFFs, and take our well-vetted suggestions. You can't really say you've experienced the Austin culinary scene unless you've been to _______ (your choice from these lists).
