RAINEY STREET — Has anyone heard of this place Lustre Pearl on Rainey Street? The Austinot calls it an "excellent showpiece for this revitalized, formerly residential district" and says that the reputed "douchiness of Lustre Pearl" didn't show, since "upwardly mobile types" and "the average college types" got along just fine. [The Austinot]
