The former home of Jason Dady’s Tre Enoteca now has a new life. On September 13, seasonal farm-to-table restaurant Meadow announced via release that it will debut at 555 W. Bitters Rd. in the Alley on Bitters shopping center on September 22.

The location is not the only connection to the famous San Antonio chef. The owners have both spent time working for Dady. Chef PJ Edwards got his start working at the much-missed Bin 555 and his wife, Lindsey, was the general manager for the restaurant group.

Meadow is the fulfillment of a longtime dream to return to their hometown. PJ was most recently working in Austin as the culinary director for popular ranch-inspired eatery Contigo.

Like at his previous job, PJ will bring Texas flavors to the new project. Hearty plates like freshly ground burgers, fried chicken, and charcoal grilled ribeye steaks make up much of the menu, which was developed with the help of area farmers and ranchers.

On the lighter side, the rotating dishes will take full advantage of available harvests. Opening offerings celebrate the transition from late summer to fall in dishes like fresh grilled okra, oven-roasted acorn squash, and a simple toast using the last tomatoes of the season.

The interior carries on the Lone Star theme with a heavy use of wood in the lounge, patio, and bar. The latter will serve local craft beer, wine, and a curated selection of cocktails.

Once open, the eatery will offer dinner between 5-10 pm on Tuesday through Saturday. Sunday brunch, featuring dishes like campfire doughnuts and poached eggs with grits, will debut September 30 from 10 am-2 pm.
