Austin's Most Important Restaurants?

Not joking about these tacos

A recent article lists Austin's most important restaurants, and they've picked some great ones:

  • Sholz Garten
  • Nubian Queen Lola's Cajun Soul Food
  • Tacodeli
  • The Frisco
  • Fonda San Miguel
  • Threadgill's
  • Jeffrey's
  • Chez Nous
  • Uchi
  • Franklin Barbecue
  • Dai Due
  • Eastside Cafe
  • Ramen Tatsu-Ya
  • Qui

I like that they didn't just pick the most popular, but in many cases, picked restaurants that represented a turning point in Austin cuisine, or a tradition that the restaurant preserves.? Let me add a few to the list:

  • Stubbs BBQ - the Gospel Brunch is like nothing else.
  • Musashino - the restaurant that brought sushi to Austin and provided the training grounds for the folks behind Uchi and Uchiko
  • P.Terry's - a burger joint that also pays well, they're out-doing in-n-out.
  • Amy's Ice Cream-? local creamery with entertainment value.? Expanding outside our borders
  • Congress - setting the standard for high-end dining in Austin.
  • Chuys - the best casual dining Tex-Mex chain, expanding nationally.? But they started here and laid down markers on hatch green chiles.
  • Tiff's Treats - changing the business model for cookies.
  • Chi'lantro BBQ, Peached Tortilla, Hey Cupcake, Odd Duck, etc. for making Austin Food Truck cuisine innovative and dare I say, high-end.?

This is making me hungry...
