So far, the San Antonio Chefs Coalition boasts Andrew Weissman of Il Sogno and Sandbar, Jason Dady of Tre Trattoria, Two Bros. BBQ, and Bin 555, Quealy Watson and Chad Carey from the Monterey, Steven McHugh of Lüke San Antonio, Michael Sohocki of Restaurant Gwendolyn, John Brand of Las Canarias, and David Gilbert of Sustenio. To kick off their effort, the group is hosting their first dinner at an undisclosed location on Monday, March 26. Tickets are $95 and available by emailing SAchefcoalition@gmail.com.
This Sunday, the third annual Paella Challenge at the Pearl (200 E Grayson) is set to honor one local "paella king."
