One of my favorite restaurants in Lakeway has bitten the proverbial dust. Sobani, on 620 a few miles east of Lakeway Center, was a terrific little fine dining spot that was a favorite of mine. I guess you could argue bad location, but then how do you explain The Salt Lick and Wink? No, I think they simply were unable to gather a core audience and that sealed their doom. Too bad.
The Upper Decks sports bar has also closed near downtown adjacent to the Embassy Suites. When they first opened, I thought their food was pretty good but after they lost their talented chef to Cafe Blue at the Galleria things began to slide. Their layout was also really not conducive for grazing and watching. We’ll keep you posted in what will happen to this site.
