Places to eat nearby

Probably the best place to go for lunch is the Reading Market Terminal next door to the Marriott and the Convention Center. My friends from Philly say this, and I agree with them after going there both Sunday and Monday. I could see Italian artisan meat shops, Indian food, Chinese food, and American food. But there is much much more inside. I even found some fresh goat milk, if that catches your interest, at the Fair Food Farmstand inside.

For dinner I strongly recommend an Italian place a few blocks away, Gran Caffe L’Aquila. We went there as a UT Austin group last night, and the food as well as the service is great. You must have some gelato after your dinner!
