From Our Editors

Maria Maria's menu springs from the musical mind of the legendary Carlos Santana and the experienced hands of chef Roberto Santibañez. Maria Maria specializes in Mexican cuisine that sprinkles a contemporary twist on time-tested traditions. For lunch (served daily 11 a.m. until 4 p.m.), you may pair one soup or salad with one lunch-portion entree ($10.50), or you can add an additional soup, salad, or a side of rice and beans ($12.50) for a meal as balanced as a tight-rope walker giving unasked-for nutritional advice. Tomatillo tortilla soup is soulfully simmered with all-natural vegetable broth, roasted jalapeños, tomatillos, pumpkin seeds, and cilantro, and then topped with diced panela cheese, crispy tortillas, and wild mushrooms in a hearty mixture. Fresh mangoes, grilled shrimp, queso fresco, toasted almonds, raisins, and sesame seeds get cozy atop the spinach mango salad tossed with honey-lime vinaigrette. A burrito Maria arrives on plates perfectly packaged with red onions, roasted corn and poblanos, black beans, and cheese rolled in a flour tortilla with beef or chicken and topped with creamy tomatillo-pasilla sauce.

Austin Restaurant Guide

If it can be tossed on a grill and slathered in barbecue sauce, it probably can be found at one of the many Austin restaurants that keep things classically Texas. But even though the city may have made its culinary name with sweet, smoky briskets and ribs, new and not-so-new cooking styles have made Austin a foodie destination.

Thanks to the popularity of “Tex-Mex” cuisine, Matt’s El Rancho on South Lamar has managed to become an Austin institution for more than 60 years. Since that time, Tex-Mex dining in Austin has gone uptown with Nuevo Mexican restaurants such as Manuel’s, an upscale Mexican eatery located in downtown Austin, and Garrido’s, a Warehouse District spot that marries traditional Mexican cooking with modern techniques. Foodies who consider eating an adventure are flocking to newcomers on the Austin dining scene including The Afin Modern Japanese Tapas Bar on North Lamar Boulevard, which turns out stunning sushi creations, and Foreign & Domestic, on East 53rd Street, where they utilizes local ingredients to reinvent classic American dishes at this updated take on the diner. Newcomers Asia Café (Sichuan), Indian Spicy Kitchen (Indian) and Mi Kefcito (Cuban) are also worth checking out.

Still, barbecue reigns supreme among Austin food worshippers and one of the newest places is Franklin Barbecue on East 11th Street, recently named the best barbecue restaurant in the country by Bon Appetit magazine. Lines form early here (about 10 a.m.) and Franklin only serves lunch, so plan accordingly. Other places where the barbecue is popular include Live Oak Barbecue on East 2nd Avenue and longtime Austin favorites Stubbs, (located on Red River Street), Sam’s BBQ (on East 12th Street), and Ironworks BBQ (downtown Austin). From traditional Texas chow to unique Southwestern twists on international dishes, Austin is now one of the top favorites for unique taste adventures.
