Boat House Grill

Hours: Sun.-Thu., 11am-9pm; Fri.-Sat., 11am-9:30pm
We love the Frito pie made with "Grandma's Immortal Chili," and we're especially partial to the fried green tomatoes and the fried catfish basket.
This sunny, lovely bistro specializes in French treats like tartines, mussels, and boeuf bourguignon.
3663 Bee Cave Rd., 512/306-1668
The most elegant food at the mall, with a menu strong on ladies-who-lunch fare. Salads and sandwiches are exceptional, but more substantial offerings are there for the asking.
