No news is good news, but some news is Super Bien, which is also the name of a new concept from chef Johnny Hernandez, opening at the San Antonio International Airport (SAT) on Tuesday, November 15.
A partnership with global restaurateur HMSHost, the new outpost is the third SAT restaurant from Hernandez, who has been feeding hungry airport passengers at La Gloria and The Frutería since 2013.
The spot is a welcome addition to the busy terminal and will feature Tex-Mex favorites from the chef's San Antonio childhood, such as his signature crispy taco bowls, breakfast tacos, and coffee from Vera Cruz, Mexico. Mexican beers, margaritas, and aguas frescas will be on hand to quench that travel thirst.
Local artist Claudio Aguillon will adorn the restaurant with a colorful mural celebrating Día de los Muertos, which Aguillon will paint during the restaurant's grand opening celebration.
The celebration kicks off at 1:30 pm on Tuesday, November 15, with a piñata breaking and food and beverage samples from the airport's newest restaurant.
Jesus H. Saenz, Jr., director of airports at San Antonio Airport System, will attend the event, along with Derryl Benton, executive vice president at HMSHost, and chef Hernandez.
