A sad day in Austin: the Oasis restaurant burnsI loved this restaurant in Austin. Even though the food was only ok, and a bit pricey, the patio views of the lake and sunset were well worth it.
I may be bad luck for landmark restaurants - I also ate at the Reatta western restaurant at the top of the Bank One skyscraper in downtown Ft. Worth a few months before a tornado completely destroyed that building.

The good news: they're planning to rebuild.
