It’s True: Food IS Bliss

We’d been hearing great things about Bliss for a while now, but just made it there a couple of weeks ago.  The restaurant’s website states that “food is bliss” and after this dining experience, I agree!  Located in Southtown, this trendy spot has plenty of parking, a cute bar and some outdoor seating.

A Guest Post: Blissful Dining at Bliss

JP

A co-worker and friend of mine, I call him JP, has exquisite taste in wines and knows all the best places to dine.  His birthday was this past Friday and he had the opportunity to partake in the chef’s dinner at Bliss, Mark Bliss’ new restaurant in the trendy Southtown part of town. I haven’t had a chance to go to Bliss yet, but after reading JP’s review, we will definitely be making a reservation soon.  JP knows everything about wine and since I know nothing about wine (other than I like it a lot), I thought his guest review would be a perfect addition to our list of reviews!  Please enjoy JP’s review!

An Unlikely Spot for a Delicious Burger: Lüke

It’s hard to believe that the best burger I’ve had in town is at Lüke, a restaurant which is fashioned after the “Franco-German brasseries that once dominated New Orleans.”  Burgers are not your standard French, German or New Orleans fare… but who cares?!  Woohoo I finally found a yummy burger!

What’s Cookin’ in Auden’s Kitchen

cheers!

We have been wanting to try out Auden’s Kitchen for a while now because we really love Bruce Auden’s other restaurant, Biga on the Banks.  J’s brother was in town and we were looking for a place that had a nice variety of dishes — and Auden’s Kitchen fit the bill.  As soon as we walked in, I knew we would like it.

A New Year’s Eve Feast

tres chic

The San Antonio Express-News recently reviewed Feast and wrote, “Everything about Feast is beautiful — the gleaming whitewalls and tables, clear acrylic chairs, glittering multicolored chandeliers, the glamorous servers of both sexes, and the gorgeous plating of various dishes.” We could not agree more.  It was as if we stepped out of casual, comfy San Antonio and into the Chicago or NYC dining scene.

Not Drooling for Drew’s

We’re always on the look out for great places to grab a bite, so when we saw the article about Drew’s American Grill in the San Antonio Magazine we were sold and made our reservation. The food looked fabulous from the pictures – and we loved the idea of “imaginative” cooking as mentioned on the restaurant’s website.

Perfection at Pam’s Patio Kitchen

much needed

J was working late, so we decided to go out for a quick dinner.  I was craving one of my Houston faves, Ruggles Green.  San Antonio doesn’t seem to have the same appreciation for organic and locally grown foods yet (I think that will come in time!)  I figured we could find a nice, casual place with a good variety and a decent selection of wine.  I referred to the restaurant list my co-workers gave me and Pam’s Patio sounded cute, so I doubled checked it out on Yelp.  Sounded yummy and we liked the idea of a nice outdoor patio (even though it was too chilly that day to sit outside!)
