How much is too much to pay for a plate of chicken-fried steak and accompaniments? For a plate of huevos rancheros? For a few spears of cucumber sprinkled with Tajín? When I first looked over the menu at Joann's Fine Foods, I'll confess to a bit of sticker shock, even though it's under the umbrella of the McGuire Moorman restaurant group, which is well known for its extravagant price points. But South Con­gress is changing; even the vaguely seedy Austin Motel has gotten a face-lift, along with its attached restaurant, and with progress comes pricier food, I guess.
