On my way out of Austin I grabbed lunch at a Texan restaurant I miss very much: La Madeleine. I haven't eaten much French food (aside from "fraunch fries", and "fraunch dressing"...), so I can't vouch for its authenticity, but La Madeleine makes some great food for a great price. My favorite dish is the "Chicken Friand", which is a flaky pastry wrapped around a chicken core, covered in mushroom sauce. With that I got a side of vegtables and a glass of tea. All guests are allowed to select any amount of bread and jams to complement their meals (I picked the white bread with strawberry and grape jellies). Finally, the interior of the restaurant is just like some Disney Paris: lots of knick-knacks hanging on the walls, wooden floors, and of course, a fireplace. I snagged a table next to the fireplace and had a great meal, and a great conclusion to visiting a great city.
