Coming in at number four on Food & Wine’s “32 Places to Go (and Eat) in 2019,” San Antonio has ushered in a new era in its restaurant scene with a broad spectrum of choices. Recognizing the close of the city’s 300th anniversary (in 2018) which has swept in an abundance of new growth and expansion in its wake, Food & Wine acknowledged San Antonio as being “treasured for its love of heritage” but also “on a growth tear like you wouldn’t believe,” identifying an abundance of new restaurants to try.

There was a firm nod to barbecue (because, hey, Texas!) as well as a “Michoacan-style carnitas spot” made note of en route to the historic Missions located in the Hill Country. Food & Wine also recognized a “new-wave bakery” opened by a partnership of two entrepreneurs out of Mexico City (definitely giving way to a great concha credit).

The best part of this national magazine honor of being in the top five is that San Antonio’s existing foundation of great history combined with great food was recognized – showing that a sound basis for building new tastes and new models of food design, preparation, and enjoyment draws the culinary crowd to this beautiful Texas Hill Country city. Sharing an Instagram photo from 2M Smokehouse & catering didn’t hurt either! What are some of the great dining destinations you’ve discovered in the Alamo City? Have you shared some San Antonio eating experiences with family and friends? Perhaps 2019 will find you making the trip to the Mission City mecca of meals and heritage to once again enjoy new taste sensations. If so, bon appetit!
