PizzaDowntown$10-$25 First Plates 

Winner of 2011’s Best of Austin Critics Pick for Best Dinner Destination on a Damp, Cold Night, this place is about as authentically Italian as you can get without jumping on a plane to Parma. Antipasti, Neopolitan pizza, and a good wine list make for good shelter here.

Chi'Lantro BBQ

Korean, Tex-MexDowntown$10-$25 First Plates
