Meat, meat and more meat.
That’s the prevailing concept behind Q, the new restaurant at the Hyatt Riverwalk, 123 Losoya St.
The shrine to barbecue from around the world features a Wall of Fire that is part smoker, part churrasco grill and part rotisserie grill. So, you can choose what type of meat you want and what style you want, whether it’s Argentine, Korean, Moroccan or Texan.
Q, which opens today, replaces Chaps in the downtown hotel. But don’t worry, the pasta bar at lunch will still be available. Yet numerous other changes are in store for diners. The atmosphere is decided more casual, from the jelly jar glasses to the hundreds of beers available at the bar. (That’s right, hundreds, including selections from San Antonio’s own Ranger Creek Brewing.)
There’s also a wall of wine, featuring 480 bottlings that diners can choose from, if beer doesn’t quite cut it.
Chef Eddie Peyer, who has been with the Hyatt for 29 years, remains in charge of the kitchen. His menu includes Korean Barbecue Shrimp, Brisket Tacos, Tipsy Chicken, Barbecued Salmon and even Grilled Fruit Kebabs.
Sauces play a big part of Q. Selections from the cart include Smoky Peach and Bourbon as well as sweet and spicy barbecue sauces while the condiments include candied jalapeños and the pickled watermelon rind condiments.
All entrées are priced below $30.
