Each week in Austin360, we offer a rotating list of places to eat right now. This week: Fall flavors. That front that blew through this week got me thinking about fall flavors. To be clear: I haven’t eaten every one of these dishes, but they all caught my eye as good comforting choices that remind me of the season. More restaurants at austin360.com/restaurants.
