Everyone knows that here at Meadow we love to shop, but we love eating out almost as much! No longer limited to enchiladas and barbeque, the San Antonio dining scene has undergone an exciting makeover during the past few years. Stylish eateries are popping up all over the city. Here are some of our favorites, as well as tips on what to wear to these new hot spots!
1. Il Sogno
Located in the Pearl Brewery, chef Andrew Weissman’s Italian venture is every foodie’s dream date spot. Set in a sleek, dimly lit space, decadent dishes like risotto primavera and seared Italian sea bass are prepared in the restaurant’s exposed kitchen. Be sure to try an antipasti sampler before dinner, and order the nutella tart to cap off your meal! Wear something a little bit flirty while dining at this romantic new osteria. Try Rebecca Taylor’s “Must Have” Dress paired back with Rachel Leigh Jewelry and a wristlet clutch by Beirn. Bellisima!
2. Bistro Bakery
We are so lucky that our next door neighbors just happen to make the tastiest pastries and baked goods in town! Walking into the Bistro Bakery you immediately feel like you are in an authentic french boulangerie. You must try the grapefruit and pistachio tart- I know it sounds weird, but trust me it is the BEST! Keep it casually chic in white skinny jeans by J-Brand, Rachel Pally’s over sized nautical striped shirt, and Hazel Smyth Jewelry. After breakfast or lunch, be sure to walk next door and say bonjour to us at Meadow.
3. Liberty Bar
Though it’s been a San Antonio staple for years, Liberty Bar’s recent move to funky southtown means a new chapter in the life of this iconic restaurant. Now housed in a bright pink building that used to be a convent (you can’t miss it), Liberty Bar is still serving up the same eclectic regional favorites that it has been for years. If you’re feeling like stepping outside the box for dinner or lunch, this is the place to go! Peruse some of the local shops and galleries in and around King William while you’re down there. We suggest wearing an artsy ensemble to maintain the neighborhood’s alternative vibe: try Tucker’s mini dress in “tric trac” with jewelry by Pyrrha.
We can’t wait to see you out and about at these great places in some of our fabulous frocks- Bon Appetit!
