Restaurants in San Antonio

Biga, one of the few upscale dining options in downtown San Antonio, specializes in contemporary American cuisine prepared by chef Bruce Auden. Located in the nondescript International Center Building on the St.

Big’z Burger Joint serves standard American burgers and fries with a twist: the burgers are dressed with special sauces like ginger lime ketchup and chipotle mayo, as well as extras like Portobello mushrooms, beer braised onions, and pineapple.

Housed inside the former Pearl Brewery, Sandbar Fish House & Market serves up a fresh selection of hook-and-line-caught seafood that is flown in daily. The small eatery has industrial-like decor with concrete floors, a lofted ceiling, and a metallic bar.

Once a mother house for the Benedictine Sisters, this historic Southtown building (dating back to 1883) now houses Liberty Bar.

Industrial floor-to-ceiling windows offer views of the kitchen where chef Andrew Weissman whips up seasonal Italian plates, including house-made crostini and pasta allo zafferano—mussels, shrimp, and pancetta with saffron cream sauce.

Take a break for a prickly-pear margarita and guacamole prepared tableside.
