Perla's Lobster Roll...
When you eat at Perla's, you forget for a minute that you're in Austin, that you are indeed landlocked, and that it's so hot outside your bra has slid down to your navel while walking down South Congress. The eatery exudes breezy nautical charm with such sincerity, you actually feel like you're in Nantucket...until an aging gent in a tutu and platform wedges walks by and you're reminded exactly where you are.
To be fair Kris said the lobster roll was no Luke's Lobster in NYC, but then again Kris holds Luke's Lobster on the same plane as Jesus and vintage sports cars so take his opinion with a grain of salt.
I, for one, plan on drinking a lot of rose here this summer, eating fresh fish and pretending the deck is overlooking the ocean instead of a steaming stretch of asphalt.
