Fall Food Preview
With fall comes new dining opportunities. The city heats up as temperatures drop with exciting new places for your culinary pleasure. A lot of the following menus are still under wraps, but we’ve given an overview of what to expect from San Antonio's hottest fall restaurant and bar openings.
Rebelle is the newest venture from Feast and Haunt chef Stefan Bowers and owner Andrew Goodman. The fresh French eatery within the recently renovated and glamorous St. Anthony Hotel will open in late fall 2015. Known for beautiful restaurants with stellar food programs, this duo has hit gold yet again.
A collaborative effort by new restaurant group on the block, Center Cut Concepts, Grayze is fun eats with a chef-focused vibe, set to open in late fall 2015. The menu looks approachable and delicious and definitely worth grazing. (Now if only we can convince them to share the cocktail menu.) The space is amazing with plenty of outdoor seating and shade. Families and dogs are welcome; Grayze will even have gourmet treats for your pups.
Down on Grayson
A Josephine Street project, the space looks superb and near completion. With window arches for days and a long bar, it just might be your new place to chill. No word on plans for a patio, but you might not need one with the expansive windows. Expect Down on Grayson to open in late fall 2015.
We’ve all been waiting patiently for this long-awaited hotel to open. And it will not disappoint — not even a little. Opening November 9, Hotel Emma brings outstanding touches to San Antonio's dining scene, and even offers a culinary concierge. Below is a guide to Hotel Emma's three soon-to-open epicurean concepts:
At the hotel's new restaurant, Chef John Brand shows off his love of seasonal everything. Brand brings style and a truly dazzling way of making clean, organic, and farm-to-table food fun, interesting, and approachable. Not to mention, his flavor profiles are always, without a doubt, out of this world.
Hotel Emma's bar and clubroom is worth checking out for the specially curated cocktails and wine list.
Larder is a locally sourced grocery store concept. Housed in the old fermenting cellar of the hotel, Larder will offer fine provisions, wine, baked goods, freshly prepared foods to-go, and even flowers.
