Austin dinner recommendations, please

Ms. Alex will be in Austin in a couple of weeks and plans to venture out for dinner, probably by herself, on a Sunday and a Tuesday. From the research we've done so far, Sunday looks very much like a Chez Nous night, but Tuesday is as yet unplanned.

She's open to most any cuisine, but prefers a place that's relatively casual (business casual is OK) and not overly loud. Most of the entrées should be under $30. We've scouted out what appear to be some likely candidates -- Restaurant Jezebel, Wink Restaurant, Cafe Josie, Gumbo's -- and would appreciate some feedback, but further suggestions are extremely welcome, of course.

Gene Weingarten, writing in the Washington Post about online news stories and the accompanying readers' comments: "I basically like 'comments,' though they can seem a little jarring: spit-flecked rants that are appended to a product that at least tries for a measure of objectivity and dignity. It's as though when you order a sirloin steak, it comes with a side of maggots."

A cheap cab ride up Cogress, and you can go to Vespaio. It's my favorite place in town at the moment.

Of course, there's always Uchi.

-Sounds awfully rich!

-It is! That's why I serve it with ice cream to cut the sweetness!
