7 San Antonio spots to find special deals for Restaurant Weeks
It's the most wonderful time of the year — for foodies, that is. Culinaria's Restaurant Weeks is back and bigger than ever with a full slate of San Antonio restaurants jumping in on the fun with their own prix-fixe menus. And don't worry, you still have plenty of time to try a variety of menus: Restaurant Weeks started on January 16, but lasts until January 28. Here are some of our favorite local restaurants offering up their own special menus for a great deal.
Guests at Four Brothers (the in-house restaurant at the Omni La Mansión del Rio) get to share a heaping helping of the restaurant's signature jalapeño cheddar corn bread — served in Texas-shaped tin. Options on the three-course dinner menu include BBQ brussels sprouts or pozole for an appetizer, and lamb shank or branzino for the main course. Don't forget to save some room for buttermilk pie with homemade ice cream for dessert!
If you're in more of a Mediterranean mood, check out Jardín at the San Antonio Botanical Garden. 2022 Chef of the Year Jason Dady has crafted a menu that includes a mezze or hummus starter and a choice of a Jardín salad or seasonal bisque. Entree options include pan-seared salmon, roasted chicken confit, or beef kefta kabobs. Dessert is an olive oil cake with saffron chantilly (essentially a fancy whipped cream).
For brunch, look no further than Los Azulejos. Brunch patrons will start with one mimosa or agua fresca, and have their pick between huevos divorciados, chilaquiles, motuleños, or azulejos benedictos, with a house dessert to cap it all off.
Rebelle, one of the St. Anthony's in-house restaurants, is the perfect place for a Restaurant Week guest who needs a lot of options. For your starter, pick from crawfish risotto, charbroiled gulf oysters, deviled eggs, crab cakes, seafood bisque, braised field peas, a salad, or grilled shrimp. Main courses include blackened red fish, shrimp bucatini, chicory-spiced braised chuck flap, or a garlic buttered lobster roll, with either hummingbird cake or bourbon-soaked chocolate bread pudding for dessert.
Sangria on the Burg
If you missed the actual sunset, head over to Sangria on the Burg and start off with the Restaurant Week menu Sangria Sunset Salad. After that, you get to try seared chicken poblano, braised short rib, and strawberry chocolate buñuelos for dessert.
Southerleigh Haute South
Craving a hearty bowl of gumbo? Head to Southerleigh Haute South, where you'll find it on the starter menu. If you still have room for more, the main course entree options include shrimp ceviche, a deputy special chicken sandwich, or a meatloaf sandwich, followed by breakfast cereal ice cream or Kats Coffee crème brulée for dessert.
Stixs & Stone
If you've ever wanted to try a Restaurant Week menu from a chef that was on the Food Network, look no further than Stixs & Stone. Chef Leo Davila's dinner menu starts with a crispy rice paper boat with ground turkey, honey soy chile glazed pork ribs, queso fundido, or Mexican style street corn. There are two tiers of main dishes: Tier 1 includes options like the iconic Stixs & Stone Big Red and barbacoa flight, japchae, or a sesame chicken delight. Tier 2 features options like the Stixs & Stone signature pork belly, Mongolian beef, or a chicken and Hong Kong waffle.
