The city is right now one of America’s better food scenes, and perhaps America’s most dynamic city overall? It is radically different from even my recent visit a few short years ago. Here are a few recommendations:
Loro: Asian fusion and smoked meats, don’t forget to get the sweet corn and also the cabbage.
LeRoy and Lewis: Outside dining from a food truck, first-rate beef cheeks. Get there early.
Sammie’s: Doesn’t seem like it should be good, but excellent Italian with a Texas emphasis.
Comedor: Nouvelle Mexican, the quesadillas were the surprise with the biggest upside.
