A taste of what you’ll find at Salata


There’s a new franchise in town: Houston-based Salata, which specializes in “tossed-to-order salads and salad wraps,” opened in mid-October at 11075 I-10 W, Ste 310 inside Huebner Oaks Shopping Center. Alamo Café owners and operators Tom McCarthy and Pat Hanlon have franchised the chain, which launched in 2005, with plans to open a total of five locations in San Anto and seven in Austin.

The Junior League of San Antonio will host Jan Whittle, former British Navy cook for its “Taste of Autumn” fundraiser at The Bright Shawl on November 14 at 5:30 p.m. Whittle, currently a representative for Ben E. Keith, has a storied resume, which includes cooking for the likes of the Queen of England. So, you can literally enjoy a meal fit for a queen during this five-course dinner and benefit. Call (210) 225-6366 for ticket information.

Finally, are you ready for the holidays? Because Q on the Riverwalk is. The restaurant, located inside the Hyatt Regency (123 Losoya), has released Thanksgiving brunch and dinner menus, along with the menus for the Ford Holiday River Parade and Lighting Ceremony on November 29. Call (210) 510-4477 to reserve your buffet-style dinner and seat.
