Por Vida makes a mark on UTSA
Published: February 15, 2012
In a partnership with the San Antonio Metropolitan Health District, the University of Texas at San Antonio now offers low-fat and low-sodium dining options at The Roadrunner Café at the main UTSA campus. The dishes come courtesy of ¡Por Vida!, a campaign launched in 2009 by The Healthy Restaurants Coalition, a partnership between the San Antonio Metropolitan Health District, the San Antonio Restaurant Association, and the San Antonio Dietetics Association. With so much attention being paid these days to youth obesity and health, it's good to see a local university recognizing the problem and offering a solution.
In new restaurant news, Mark Bliss has opened Bliss at the site of an old Southtown filling station (926 South Presa). Bliss has a long history in San Antonio, having worked at Bruce Auden's Polo and Biga, Nosh, and at the Tower of the Americas. Bliss opened earlier this month, and features American fare with Southwestern influences. We'll be there to review what hits the tables soon, but until then we're digging on that retrofit.
