"...Science has proven that Austin is known primarily for two types of food: barbecue and Tex-Mex, forever and ever, amen. Of course, what science doesn't know is that we've also been quietly enjoying a diverse complement of burgers from venerated purveyors for generations now, from the legendary variations at Hut's Downtown to the delightfully greasy UT-area stalwarts at Dirty Martin's, Players, and Burger Tex to the fancier, spendier burgers at Contigo, Hopfields, and ALC Steaks..."

"...Elizabeth Fudell has worked for the Four Seasons as a concierge for over two years, but as a native Austinite, she is more than confident in her knowledge of restaurant and food culture. While people are often looking for places within walking distance of the hotel, she tells guests: "It is absolutely worth getting in a car, if you can, and driving out to Lockhart for barbecue." She says a great number of restaurant inquiries are for Tex-Mex and barbecue..."
"...Other local chains – Mama Fu, Rudy's, Fuddrucker's – got their start elsewhere but got sucked into the Austin vortex when it came time to establish a chain headquarters.

"...The phenomenon’s most egregious at three different restaurants: Hopdoddy Burger Bar on South Congress, Ramen Tatsu-ya off 183, and Franklin Barbecue on East 11th, where the situation’s gotten so serious that there’s now a second market renting folding chairs for weekend waiters existing in Franklin’s singular ecosystem. Occupancy at those three restaurants during any standard meal time will require waits of up to an hour every time, with very few hits on the under...."

"...So, it's discomfiting to see that scrawled on the dual story wall of Red Ash Italia, along with a magnified lipstick trace and a lascivious cartoon of Sophia Loren doing her best Amy Winehouse. (Or is it Claudia Cardinale?) Nothing else about the restaurant – from the otherwise staidly industrial dining room (by architect Jeff Stinnett and interior designer Janet Heinrich) to the hospitality CVs of chef-owner John Carver (who helmed the kitchen at Eddie V's) and partners Larry Foles and Guy Villavaso (the founders of Eddie V's, Wildfish, and Hopdoddy Burger Bar) suggests rocking the boat is a good thing...."
