Where to Eat Right Now
San Antonio has a lot to offer — in a lot of different neighborhoods. This month, we focus on buzzworthy digs to check out across town (some are brand-new, others have been open for a while).
The Rim is bursting at the seems with new and different restaurants to try, and Southtown adds another stellar spot to hang out. So go ahead, eat your heart out.
The Bread Box
Make sure you make it to this gem at The Alley before 3 pm Monday through Saturday. Try the birthday cake, the bread pudding, all the bread you can carry, and the BLT salad. What? We were hungry. Bring your co-workers and friends to this one; there’s no other way to sample all the varietals of bread. Or is there?
The menu is vast and delicious at The Rim's new hot spot for moonshine. We tried the flights of moonshine — great fun for a group — and had no idea the flavor profiles could be so different. The fried chicken was a big hit, as were the bootleg ribs. Brunch is up next — we hear it’s amazing.
Hot dogs in a church? Why indeed this magical place does exist — and it just opened last week. Frank serves hot dogs and cold beer in Southtown. The chili cheese waffle fries were a hit, as was the Frank Thunder Brat. The space, a renovated church, has been given stylish new life by the Austin import.
Russo's Coal-Fired Italian Kitchen
It might have the longest name in history, but it’s another great addition to The Rim that opened last summer. The showmanship is fun — they throw pizza dough in the air — and the menu has a little bit of everything. The wine bar has some great selections too.
Soup, sandwiches, coffee. This spot that opened last spring is a delightful place to hang out. Located at the Dominion Ridge, Cüppencake offers cheesecake for days and, you guessed it, cupcakes. Plus, there’s a great caper sandwich to bring you down from all that sugar you're going to devour.
