1. Hugo's Restaurant and Tequila Bar 300 S Lamar, Austin, TX 78704 (South Austin)

Just opened in the naturally lit base of the Cole apartments on Lamar, Hugo's fuses traditional Tex-Mex with the Cajun/southern comfort roots of its head chef (formerly of Gumbo's), and the South American flair of its Brazilian owner, who's adorned the walls with a large cyan mural of the resto's namesake -- an agave plant-licking pet iguana she had to get rid of because of its love for margaritas (apparently Amphibians Anonymous doesn't accept reptiles).
