Where to eat in San Antonio right now: 5 hot restaurants you need to try
Every month, we take you on a tour of what's sizzling in San Antonio right now — some new restaurants, some we simply can't live without. These five hot spots, erupting with flavor and character, represent the best of the city's food scene.
Brunch at Boiler House is, in our humble opinion, one of the best things to happen to anyone on this planet. The "David Lee Roth" Krispy Kreme Burger gets all of the hype, but the green-chili pork, poached eggs, and popcorn grits dish is where it’s at for us. The explosion of taste has us screaming for more from Executive Chef Jeff White’s arsenal of flavors.
We love watching El Machito's magic happen with a cucumber margarita in hand. The mixed grill is enough food to quite possibly feed half of San Antonio, so come hungry and be ready for an exuberant evening of colorful eating, drinking, and fire watching.
Supper at Hotel Emma is worth every single bit of hype you’ve heard. Chef John Brand delivers in a spectacular way with each dish meticulously attended to with brilliant distinction. A favorite for the table was the roasted chicken with market vegetables and potatoes.
Every patio in San Antonio is like a beacon of hope when the temperatures start dropping. Tre Enoteca is ready in high style with fireside dining that makes it one of our go-to patio places. Chef Jason Dady makes a mean grilled goat cheese sandwich, but our palates are dazzled by the fusilli pasta and pulled-to-order mozzarella.
Restaurateur Andrew Goodman and Chef Stefan Bowers have outdone themselves here. Rebelle is a sophisticated and captivating space with excessive charm and refinement in The St. Anthony Hotel. The char-grilled Spanish octopus was the most amazing surprise of the night; beautifully presented and prepared, it was a sensational journey from the first bite.
