Goodbye, January. We won't miss you or your diets. This month we happily focus on different areas of our great food-infused city. We know you're hungry, so dig into the top five San Antonio restaurants to try right now.

Whiskey Cake 
It's dessert and a restaurant. High above La Cantera, Whiskey Cake gets it done with locally sourced ingredients and a from-scratch mantra. The goat cheese fondue is worth the trip alone, but do take friends, as this comfort food spot has it all. The drinks are of the boozy, craft variety, and there's plenty of antique-style lounging space to enjoy.

Las Ramblas
The space alone is worth a visit to the Hotel Contessa eatery, and a cocktail at the Cork Bar prior to dinner is the perfect start to an evening. The menu is refreshed and vast, with special attention paid to the Texas sirloin with béarnaise goodness — it runs the show. During our visit, we even saw a wedding on Marriage Island and shared a toast with the happy couple. We did not, however, share the sirloin.

At Chef John Besh's first restaurant outside of New Orleans, you'll find the best happy hour in town — and the best hush puppies this side of NOLA. Stop by next week for Fat Tuesday fun. There's always a party — and great crowd of people — at this San Antonio favorite.

Cured
We know we’re supposed to fall all over the charcuterie boards at Cured, but we cannot tell a lie: The burger is where it's at. Pabst Blue Ribbon-infused cheese is melted over a mix of local chuck, beef rib, and bacon, then topped with onion jam. The burger, the fries, the moonshine. The end.

Barbaro
Barbaro is the spot for great pizza and beer (perhaps two things you weren't enjoying in January). You may not care about salad in February, but we suggest you try one of the three on offer. Salad is a perfect complement to Barbaro's amazing ingredient-infused pizza, paired with your beer of choice, of course.
