Cruzan’s opens Monday at 1508 Guadalupe Street. This grand opening marks a long-awaited moment for chef/owner Keith Cruzan, giving him and his staff the opportunity to present a variety of healthy dining options.
These will include gourmet sandwiches to classics such as a New York strip, and a variety of freshly made meals will also be available for pick up. Cruzan’s will also feature live cooking demonstrations hosted by Cruzan himself during restaurant hours on select days.
For Cruzan, healthy eating is a lifestyle commitment.
“Eating should be just as much about what you are putting into your body as it is what you are not. It’s easy to get preoccupied with a calorie count, but there is a real danger to limiting your calories without regard to the nutritional content of your diet. Making sure to include the vitamins and minerals your body craves can actually help you meet weight goals and also improves your energy levels, cognitive abilities and overall mood,” says Cruzan when asked his viewpoint on dieting.
Shortly after opening his catering and personal chef business, Cruzan relocated to the heart of the cultural arts district with a mission to bring a new hope to West Side San Antonians looking for local healthy options. He began offering cooking classes to the public, as well as local nonprofits, in order to educate local residents on nutritional content.
“Hopefully, this restaurant will be a way for me to give back to a community that has supported me and my business from the very beginning,” Cruzan says.
Cruzan’s will serve lunch only, for now. They’ll be open Monday – Friday from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. After 2 p.m., the store front for meal delivery pickup will be open until 6 p.m.
