Industry News: San Antonio bars gain accolades, Meat Week, and mushrooms
Published: January 30, 2013
Southern Living named two San Antonio bars as some of the best in the South. Ocho was called out as a stellar hotel bar, and Floore's Country Store was lauded for their live music. The two establishments represented Texas well, along with lounges like Midnight Cowboy in Austin and the Foundry in Dallas.
Carnivores unite! During Meat Week, local meateries are having specials all week, finishing with a Super Bowl party on Sunday, February 3, at food truck plaza Point Park and Eats. Check out meatweek.com for the schedule.
Atlanta fast casual chain Mellow Mushroom opened its first San Antonio location at 115 North Loop 1604 East. The menu covers many genres of tastes in salad, sandwiches, and pizzas. Celiac sufferers should take note of the gluten-free pizza crust options. A recent Saturday night visit resulted in hour plus waits, so use the take out option if you can.
