San Antonio in the New York Times? Yup

Print Friendly

The New York Times won no fans in San Antonio recently when it ran a story declaring Austin to be the breakfast taco capital of America. The paper, however, seems to want to mend a few fences by focusing on the city in its weekly 36 Hours travel feature.

Writer Dan Saltzstein singles out a number of foodie spots, including Il Sogno, Melissa Guerra’s Tienda de Cocina and the CIA at the Pearl Brewery as well as Casbeers at the Church, the Cove, Aldaco’s Stone Oak, the Green Lantern and the Smokehouse on Roland at Rigsby.

The author does manage to stick a foot partially in his mouth. He recommends a stroll along the River Walk, but urges you to “avoid the often overpriced restaurants and bars that line it.” Not all of the restaurants along the River Walk are good, but neither are blanket statements condemning the lot.

    A great response to the article would be a local’s recommendation for 36 hrs in San Antonio, or even different local perspectives on 36 hrs in SA…. Ah, NYT, why must you disappoint me so?

  2. Heather says:

    The writer was grossly mislead to the “lame ole’ same ole” which is perhaps how the “Keep SA Lame” slogan was born…I would have offered much different suggestions on what to do in 36 hours…but they didn’t consult me. Maybe next time.

    I didn’t realize Brackenridge Park had been moved to the west side of town. :p
