At one point in my SXSW exhaustion, I referred to the Four Seasons as "The Happiest Place on Earth." You see, even if you aren't staying there, the gorgeous view of Lady Bird Lake from their balconies and patios can make even the most harried conference goer relax a bit.
For my last lunch before leaving town, I wandered down the lakeside path and up the Four Seasons hill to a comfy couch in the sun at TRIO and ordered the Austin Hippie Salad. After all of the taco-fueled gluttony, all I really wanted was a crunchy, perfect salad... and perfect it was:
TRIO's Austin Hippie Salad: Iceberg lettuce, radicchio, dried cranberries, garbanzo beans & cornbread croutons
