San Antonio, much like the weather, is full of surprises, and the new restaurants on the scene are on point. Here's a roundup of seriously new and about-to-open spots so you're in the know and can impress your friends with your foodie super powers.
Edera Osteria Enoteca
The newest fine dining establishment to hit the scene is in what was formerly known as The Rose Shop in Alta Vista. Chef Chris Carlson is headlining, which means every detail is attended to. Happy hour, brunch, and Wine Down Saturdays are just the start at this brand-new joint. Bonus: It's beautiful.
Hearsay Urban Taste
What was Starfish is now Hearsay: same owners, same great flavors by Chef Diego Fernandez, completely different concept. This fresh new restaurant focuses on small shared plates that radiate fresh ingredients. Not to worry Starfish super fans, you'll still find some seafood on the menu.
5 Points Local
Opened in late January, the motto here is "breath, nourish, connect." It’s a new hybrid restaurant, market, and yoga studio combined in a tasteful and intentional way. We enjoyed the 5 Points breakfast with over easy free-range eggs and sweet potatoes. It was delightful, and we cannot wait to get back and enjoy some yoga.
Smoke: The Restaurant II
Chef Brian West is coming to a new neighborhood with his famed barbecue in tow. The renovated Sunset Station will host the beautiful new multi-level location. Expect some Smoke favorites with some high-end add-ons and an expansive wine list. The opening date is currently set for March 14.
Down on Grayson
We have been patiently waiting on this one for some time. The good news is Down on Grayson is now hiring and publicizing a spring opening. Expect "modern American comfort food, burgers, and salads with a full bar."
