A taste of what you’ll find at Salata


This is kind of a big deal: Spurs fans aren’t tied to crappy arena food anymore. Sure, the AT&T Center has had a Whataburger for a while, but the venue has added several fan-friendly items such as grilled cheese and a Caribbean-themed bar. The best part? The SWBC Terrace Restaurant will showcase the city’s chefs with signature dishes by Andrew Weissman (Sandbar, Il Sogno, The Luxury, Minnie’s), James Moore (TBA), John Woods (Citrus) and Jeff Balfour (The Pearl) during select games throughout the 2013-2014 regular season.

Bite Street Bistro food truck has expanded into brick-and-mortar territory with RED–A Bite Street Bistro Deli at 8626 Tesoro Drive. The deli’s open for breakfast and lunch, and serves up treats like crème brulee French toast and barbecue sandwiches.

After opening its doors in 2011, Vegeria Vegan Tex-Mex (8407 Broadway, Ste 1) has finally started serving breakfast. The tasty lineup includes breakfast bar smoothies, breakfast tacos and a daily waffle special. If you’ve ever been by for brunch, you know this is awesome news. The bar’s open 8-11 a.m. Monday through Friday.

In cocktail news, fans of boozy and fun concoctions can learn some take-home skills with classes via Gustology. Similar to paint and sip classes around town, Gustology’s events include a how-to on making three different cocktails, as well as a parting gift so you can replicate the process later. Recipes change often, but scheduled drinks for this month include a Dirty Shirley, a pumpkin spice martini, a Side Car and a Poinsettia, along with chingos of margaritas.
