WORD ON THE STREET
San Antonio's Grayson Street development docks with four restaurant and shopping concepts
New Orleans has Magazine Street, and Beverly Hills has La Cienega Boulevard. If recent development is any indication, Grayson Street may soon join the list of famous shopping and dining destinations. Anchored by Government Hill to the east and The Strip to the west, few stretches of San Antonio so succinctly capture where the city is going.
A new development opening at 310 W. Grayson is a case in point. Christian Craft of local lifestyle brand Bexar Goods will soon open the SA Yacht Club, a mini retail center adapted from four shipping containers. In addition to hosting two vacation rentals, the complex will contain four businesses.
The first to open will be a new outpost of Francisco Estrada and Lizzeth Martinez’s Naco Mexican Eatery. Naco Grayson, the third location for the couple, will debut in October with fan-favorite dishes and appetizer options such as corn in a cup, queso fundido, and loaded frijoles borrachos.
Still to come is Sippy’s Beer and Wine, a new project from Craft. Although the concept has not been formally announced, Craft has shared progress photos via Instagram and described it as a “convenience store concept.” Assumably, customers will be able to enjoy the drinks on the patio.
Sari-Sari will also have a spot at the Yacht Club, adding to a rapidly growing portfolio of concepts, including its Wurzbach Road market, restaurant, bakery, Jeepney Street Eats food truck, and supper club.
Lastly, a retail outlet for leather outfitter Bexar Goods is in the works. It’s unclear whether the new location will replace the Outland Airstream currently parked at the Broadway News park. In July, the property was reported to be undergoing foreclosure.
Though Naco Grayson has announced an October opening, exact details are still forthcoming. The estimated debuts of Sippy’s, Bexar Goods, and Sari-Sari are still unknown. Follow along as more information is announced on Instagram.
