San Antonio eating itinerary - comments, please

After lurking, posting and researching, here's my thoughts on what I'm hoping will be good eating in San Antonio next month. I'm somewhat limited on my choices for lunch by the geography of where we'll be sightseeing, as my husband can't walk any distance, so we need to eat close to where we are, and I don't want to spend time driving around. Dinner, on the other hand, we can walk, drive, taxi, boat or whatever; we are staying on the Riverwalk at the Mokara. My goal is to experience a variety of what is good in San Antonio that we don't do well in San Francisco.
Day 1 - Dinner plans are open, but I'm leaning toward BBQ at the Granary if we feel up to eating outside the hotel.
Day 2 - Lunch plans are open, as we may take it easy this day after traveling the day prior.
Dinner - Bohanan's for steak/chicken-fried steak, selected because we need to be as close to the Majestic Theater as possible for a play that night.
Day 3 - Lunch - Mi Tierra at the Mercado, as this will probably be our major sightseeing stop on the Hop-on/off bus today.
Dinner - NAO at the Pearl Brewery for something innovative
Day 4 - Lunch - Boiler House at the Pearl Brewery, as the Farmer's Market there will probably be our major sightseeing for the day. Not doing La Gloria because we're doing Mexican tonight.
Dinner - Acenar for innovative Mexican.
Day 5 - we leave San Antonio, driving via Lockhart for lunch at Smitty's for BBQ (it's a Sunday, and it's open). Drive to Hyatt Lost Pines.
Dinner - asked on a separate thread, but looking for suggestions for the next 3 nights.
Day 6 - no plans... we may just veg out at the resort
Day 7 - no plans... if we want to leave the resort, we may hit Bastrop
Day 8 - drive back to San Antonio Airport via Luling, with lunch at City Market for BBQ
I'm a little bugged that we're eating at Pearl Brewery three times, but previous threads suggested the Granary is some of the best BBQ in San Antonio proper and NAO is one of the better innovative restaurants in the city. Any substitutions for those selections? I saw one post about Laurent's, but only one... any other comments on it?
And, thanks in advance!
