One of my favorite places in the zip code is Jack & Nellie's, but for reasons that I can't yet come up with, I have yet to go there for brunch. This has been a mistake which Myna and I sought to remedy this afternoon. We arrived around noon and were promptly seated. The music began shortly after.

When The Flying Pig opened a yearish ago, it was a gastropub. Duck confit, prosciutto-wrapped porkchops, soft-shelled crab; these dishes and a hundred different whiskeys adorned the menu. The Flying Pig was a higher end alternative to the pubby Banter, a lower-end alternative to the refined Jack & Nellie's, and a quieter alternative to the boisterous Station House. But it didn't catch. No longer a gastropub, Austin Public is now a straight-up pub.

Typically, when I get a hankerin' for seafood, my default destination is London Lennies on Woodhaven Boulevard. But, sadly, it's too far to walk and parking in the area is the pits. I recommend green-cabbing it. As a second choice, there's Agora Taverna, the Greek seafood restaurant on Austin by the NYSC, but since their cooking is decidedly Mediterranean, it fits the niche of an altogether different craving. Now, that we have Reef, I was anxious to see how their fare fares against the competition. Pike and Myna were soon in tow.
