Best New Restaurant

306 Pearl Pkwy, (210) 314-3929,
If the Pearl is the current culinary zenith of San Antonio, then Cured is its nucleus. What’s not to love about the stylish, modern details that honor and enhance the 109-year-old former Pearl Brewery administration building? Chef Steve McHugh, wife Sylvia and their dedicated staff, both front and back of the house, take pleasure in making every dining experience at Cured a great one, whether it’s brunch, lunch (get the burger!) or dinner. The charcuterie boards of in-house aged meats and pickled veggies are a must, but leave room for the pork cheek poutine (pictured), pan-seared quail breast or really, just about everything else.

We’d explain but we’re too busy slurpin’ our ramen.
