Picks for San Antonio’s Restaurant Week Benefiting Culinaria 2015

Now in my third year of participating in San Antonio Restaurant Week I frequently get asked where I’m going for lunch and dinner. With $1 from lunch and $2 from each dinner being donated to Culinaria and the industry scholarship programs and urban farm.  Not only will you get to try all your must-stop restaurants but it is a great way to give back. This year they’ve extended the normal one week run to two full weeks of special three-course menus with dinners ranging from $25-35 and lunch from $10-15. This is a great way to try a new restaurant or something new at an old favorite. I’ve looked through the menus that are currently up on the Restaurant Week website and these are some that stood out to me as having something that I hopefully get to try in the last two weeks of August. But don’t just take my word for it, check out the website and see what piques your interest.

San Antonio Restaurant Week runs August 15-29, 2015 reservations are not required but strongly encouraged (especially if going with a group) Website

Boiler House Texas Grill & Wine Garden Dinner Menu

I’ve always wanted to make it to Boiler house for Restaurant Week, this year I’m going to make an extra effort. Figs, fried oysters and hog jowl carnitas all appear under course one of them menu and the dishes sound great. Maybe I’ll invite two friends and we can try them all.

Chez Vatel Bistro Dinner Menu

I checked them out recently as they are also running half off their prix fixe menu for the month of August (normally $54 now only $27 for smaller portions, which in my opinion were still very filling) and the food was really great. The selections are imaginative and I had a hard time picking just one thing. The Restaurant Week menu also gives you a cheese plate option for dessert. When in France do as the French. Oui!

Esquire Tavern Dinner Menu

Steak Tartare on a tasting menu?! Shut up and take my money! And I’ll take the fried chicken too. Plus Esquire has a great drink menu as every bar should. I’m always impressed with Esquire’s food and can’t wait to try what I’m betting will be a delicious Restaurant Week menu. The only thing I can’t decide on is the dessert. Do I get an ice cream sandwich or chocolate mousse? Can’t I get both??

SweetFire Kitchen Lunch & Dinner Menu

SweetFire Kitchen is located at La Cantera Hill Country Resort, yes, it’s far. But I think technically it’s still in San Antonio so get over it now. Plus, they’re offering a crab cake with bacon, avocado and habanero for on their lunch menu. And it comes with dessert. Their dinner menu doesn’t look bad either, I spy lobster mac n cheese. Yum.

Las Canarias Lunch & Dinner Menu

Another new restaurant to me this menu looked good too. The lunch has an option of shrimp and grits and a brisket grilled cheese. Located inside the Omni La Masion I’m interested to check the place out while getting a good meal. This coconut sorbet looks good as well. I love when chefs pair a light dessert with a menu as sometimes sorbet is just what the doctor ordered after stuffing ones self with shrimp and grits.

 

Thanks and if you are what you eat make it Delicious,
