Ever wonder exactly how a restaurant critic goes about his job? Curious about why I ranked Emmer & Rye as the number one restaurant in Austin or what it is I love so much about Olamaie? Join me this Sunday at 5 p.m. at BookPeople, where I will discuss the newly released Austin360 Dining Guide, which includes my Top 50 restaurants in town, along with the best barbecue, tacos and food trucks. I will explore some Austin restaurant history, maybe share a few funny stories about the job and take some questions. We will also be selling for $10 the beautiful Dining Guide, which features more than 100 photos and is packaged in a glossy magazine-style format.
