Michelin 3-Star chef opens fab restos in Lockhill Selma

Debra Stuart | Sep 7, 201811:57 AM     1

I wanted to alert all SA foodies to an extremely good new chef-owned restaurant in Lockhill-Selma called Spoon Eatery. We have eaten there several times in the 12 weeks they have been open and the food is unlike anything else available in San Antonio. This place has the potential to be ranked as a Top 10 restaurant I’m quite sure.

Chef Arturo Hernandez is Mexican born and has opened terribly well-respected restaurants in Merida and Mexico City (Raiz) as well as spending a solid 4 years at Michelin 3-starr El Bulli in Spain.

The restaurant is open for lunch and dinner Tue-Sat and for brunch only on Sunday. There is everything from Wagyu beef sold by the ounce and selected from a mobile meat cart to an $18 three-course lunch. All the food is meticulously prepared and the presentation and attention to detail is astounding, including some molecular gastronomy tricks learned at El Bulli that wow customers when presented tableside.

Chef Arturo grows some of his own produce, has CIA students working in his open kitchen and is very nurturing and keen to talk about his craft to staff and customers alike. He has spent a boat-load of money opening this lovely spot but the signage is insignificant and he is in desperate need of a customer base. Please go and visit soon to try some phenomenal food. Thank y’all
