J. Black's Feel Good Lounge:Austin, Texas. Reminiscent of a 1940s speakeasy, J. Blacks was carefully crafted to be an open, community-oriented restaurant, which even extends to the seating arrangement. All tables are at bar height, so that at any time and from any place, patrons can look across the room and be at eye level with everyone else. Plates meant for sharing encourage solo diners to meet new friends at this elevated pub-grub establishment.
