San Antonio’s red-hot culinary scene is set to heat up even more this August—Culinaria’s Restaurant Week is back! The event doesn’t begin until next month, but the official list of almost 100 participating restaurants has been released, which means tables are already booking up. On the menu—palate pleasers from barbecue, to Tex-Mex, to seafood—in restaurants ranging from funky tapas bars to special occasion steakhouses.
The two week-long event, running August 12-26, is the perfect time to finally test out the places you’ve been meaning to try, or to revisit fancy favorites without breaking the bank. Craving J. Prime’s filet mignon, or Perry’s “famous” pork chop? Culinaria has you covered! Thinking sushi? Kona Grill has a rainbow and Picasso roll on their menu. Special three-course prix fixe dinners run $25 or $35 per person, depending on the restaurant’s price point, and certain restaurants are also offering lunch for $10 or $15.
Best of all, your dining experience will be a charitable one. With each meal ordered, restaurants will donate $1 for lunch and $2 for dinner to Culinaria in support of their culinary scholarship and farm programs.
