Are we there yet? Seriously these past two weeks San Antonioian’s have been absolutely spoiled by San Antonio’s Restaurant Week benefiting Culinaria. In lieu of the celebrations of menus galore, we have recapped some of our favorite bites and highly encourage you to get out there tonight and try some menus before it’s all over.
We would love to thank Culinaria as well as all of our hard-working restaurant friends for your generosity and fabulously extended restaurant week(s) this post and toast is for you.
Best Family-Friendly Menu: Orderup
3-courses including their incredible queso choice of ABC burger, salad or fish tacos, chocolate chip cookie, and a kids meal (or glass of wine or beer) included (!!) all for $15, you seriously cannot beat it.
Best Dish: CITRUS’s Thai Fried Chicken
Chef David Gilbert and his team at Citrus of Hotel Valencia Riverwalk, blew us away with his fried chicken dish. This is not like any other friend chicken you have ever had, it’s tangy, sweet and not greasy at all- the #SAFOODIE crowd seemed to love it too, check out this instagram feed from their menu tasting…
Best Lunch: Zinc Bistro and Bar
Zinc’s Restaurant Week lunch was met with incredible wine pairing suggestions from our server and you cannot beat their patio, it’s seriously like Europe landed in San Antonio.
Traveling Around Town? Here are some other places to check-out today…
Alamo Heights: Paloma Blanca’s menu is stellar and be sure to get a margarita (Tier 1 so it’s on the cheap), El Machito has a great menu as well as margarita too. We loved Max’s menu as well, another friend chicken must-have….
Stone Oak area: SMOKE The Restaurant – you cannot go wrong in the hand’s of chef Brian West, we are also fans of Two Step, a little out of stone oak range but still right off the highway, and worth the drive.
Southtown: BLISS, La Frite and Bite have been the talk of Restaurant Week Southtown- be sure to call ASAP if you want to get in the last dinner service tonight. We could not get enough of Bite and La Frite’s Mussels.
Downtown: Boudros (a classic), LUKE, Kimura (have you been yet?- our favorite ramen around), and Omni La Mansion- for a romantic dinner and playing tourist for the night.
Full List HERE on Culinaria’s Website.
And if you are what you eat,
