Goodbye Resolutions…Restaurant Week is Back!


January 15-27, 2018

Just when you thought it was safe to stay home eating takeout and watching reruns wrapped up in your Snuggie—the folks at Culinaria are back with two weeks of tempting offers to lure you out of your pajamas and into area restaurants.    San Antonio chefs will be showcasing their talents January 15-27 with special three-course prix-fixe menus for lunch and dinner throughout the city.  Plan your cheat day in advance, and make your reservations (which aren’t necessary, but why take chance) now for lunch or dinner at one of the participating establishments.  Been reading all the buzz about Jason Dady’s new downtown steakhouse, Range?  Now’s your chance to see what the fuss is about.  Craving a pork chop the size of your head at one of your fancy favorites?   J. Prime or Bob’s Steak and Chop House have you covered, at a fraction of the usual cost.  When you arrive, show you’re in the know and ask for the Restaurant Week menu to take advantage of the curated fare and special pricing.

Tier 1 restaurants are offering a $15 lunch and $35 dinner multi-course menu, and Tier 2 restaurants will have a $10 lunch and $25 dinner menus.  Just don’t forget to show your server some love, as tips (and tax) aren’t included.

And you can feel good about treating yourself.  With each meal ordered, restaurants will donate $1 for lunch and $2 for dinner to Culinaria and the programs it supports.

Check the Culinaria website for a list of restaurants and menus.

Don’t Miss Your Chance to #EatDrinkGive During Restaurant Week

One of my favorite events is back and better than ever–Culinaria’s Restaurant Week is in full swing now through January 28.  Chefs  around San Antonio are showcasing their culinary chops with specially priced three-course menus for lunch and dinner. Restaurants designated as “Tier 1”, such as Kirby’s Steakhouse and Wildfish Seafood Grille, offer a $35 dinner (and those open from 11:00 a.m. offer a  $15 lunch).  “Tier 2” restaurants like Smoke and The Hoppy Monk, offer a $10 lunch and a $25 dinner.

Restaurant Week is a great way to enjoy a Northside favorite or try out a new “buzzworthy” establishment downtown.  (My admin. was at J-Prime last night and raved about the rich lobster bisque and perfectly cooked lamb chops that were on the special menu.)  Although reservations aren’t required, they are encouraged, and can be booked directly with the restaurant.  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 and the programs it supports.  For a list of participating restaurants and special menus click on Culinaria San Antonio.
