I originally posted this on the Austin Board, and a kind and knowledgable CHer explained that SA postings are here on the Texas page! So here goes (several of the suggestions were from folks on the Austin page, so I look to San Antonians for the best places in their own town.
We like all kinds of food, but have plenty of choices for "ethnic" (Asian, Italian, etc) food here in Boston. We're looking for what makes SA special. We'll be driving down from Austin, and have searched here and found lots of recent suggestions for that trip (thank you Jaymes, et al). We can go fancy if the place warrants it, but we love "hole in the wall" type places, too. Mainly, the food has to be great. A good bar wins extra points. We're also seeking good German food! I'll post for that separately!
Poochinator (on the Austin board) gave me some suggestions for places near the Riverwalk, but I can't find any other posts about those places, unless I'm looking in the wrong place! Please chime in about any of these, and make some more for your favorite places in SA! but I've yet to find more CH posts about the following:
La Gloria, Ocho, Esquire Tavern, Ostra
And from other sources their food "cred" is unknown. I trust CHers above most others):
Acenar, Biga on the Banks, Boudro's, The Fig Tree, Las Canarias, Luke (worth it?), Tommy Moore's, Josephine Street Cafe, Auden's, Shilo's Deli
And, since I haven't gotten any other responses regarding German, I'll post separately for that.
Thanks again, all! We'll be down on Thursday! Can't wait--we've been inundated with snows and blizzard conditions here in Boston! Looking forward to some Texas sunshine!
