San Antonio Restaurant Week!

download (22)Hey, guess what!?! It's San Antonio Restaurant Week, y'all!

This week we get to gratify our rumbling tummies at our favorite fancy-schmancy San Antonio Restaurants (featuring fixed-price rates for top-tier meals!) It’s a way for us to celebrate San Antonio culture and culinary expertise affordably.

For Tier-1 service, it’s $15 for lunch and $35 for dinner

For Tier-2 service, it’s $10 for lunch and $25 for dinner

We know that reservations aren’t required, but definitely seem to be a good idea on account of how many people are excited to devour some good eats.

A major plus for joining in on all the fun is that some of your money will go to a good, charitable cause. For every $1 and $2 spent at participating restaurants, they will donate to Culinaria and its select charity groups. That sounds like a wonderful excuse to grossly overeat splurge a little on gourmet grub to us!

Culinaria is a non-profit organization geared toward bettering San Antonio and making it a popular, worldwide wine-and-food go-to destination. The program provides aid and education for San Antonio chefs during times of personal hardship through their Chefs 4 Chefs program. Its next big push to benefit San Antonio is its Culinaria Urban Farm, which will promote a nutritionally-dense farm-to-table diet and will highlight the importance of serving locally-grown produce in restaurants throughout the city.

This week we plan on trying Biga on the Bank’s 11-spiced Texas Axis venison and grilled Bandera quail featuring a goat cheese tart, chestnuts, Brussels sprouts, apricot, sultana cinnamon chutney, and juniper sauce for dinner. For dessert, we would like to try Restaurant Gwendolyn’s apple pie rose water creme anglaise topped with brandy ice cream.
