August, believe it or not, is coming up fast. And, Culinaria reminds us that Restaurant Week, an event that highlights some of San Antonio’s favorite restaurants offering great prices. Here’s the bottom line: You get a three-course meal for $15 at lunch and $35 at dinner. These are chef-created menus specifically for Restaurant Week, and it’s Aug. 18-25.
Keep informed by visiting Culinaria events here, or follow Culinaria on Twitter, @culinariasa, for updates. They’ll be announcing participating restaurants soon. SavorSA, @mysavorsa will also be tweeting updates as we receive them.
Restaurant Week reservations are not required; however making them is a good idea. Make your reservations by calling the participating restaurants.
In the hottest part of the summer, Culinaria reminds you that a perfect summer wine, especially for Texas’ spicy food, is a great, dry rosé. Rambling Rosé will again be hosted by Becker Vineyards, Aug. 18. You’ll participate in a blind tasting of a varied selection of rosés along with a panel who will help guide you through the palate of flavors.
Chef John Brand of Las Canarias at the Omni La Mansion del Rio Hotel and Ostra at Mokara will provide tastes of food that goes well with a cool glass of rosé to complete the day.
There are two sessions: 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. The cost is $25 per person. Click here to make your reservations. Becker Vineyards is off Highway 290, near Stonewall, on Jenschke Lane.
Every Thursday between now and Aug. 16, EZ’s Brick Oven & Grill is partnering with Culinaria to present Cinema Culinaria. Check out Culinaria’s list of foodie movies, then enjoy a snack at EZ’s Sunset Ridge Shipping Center location, 6498 N. New Braunfels Ave. No reservations or ticket necessary, just come and enjoy.
