A Food Hall Comes to the Pearl in Late July

A Food Hall Comes to the Pearl in Late July

The Good Kind

Pearl is excited to announce the opening of San Antonio’s first food hall, The Bottling Department Food Hall at 312 Pearl Parkway, in late July. 

Bud’s Rotisserie

The Bottling Department will house five independently owned food vendors that span a wide range of cuisine, along with a bar serving wine and beer curated in partnership with High Street Wine.

“The opening of The Bottling Department marks a poignant milestone in the completion of the renovation of the original 18-acre Pearl Brewery property. We can’t think of a more fitting homage to the rich history of this neighborhood than to create a place where San Antonio can come together to make and share great food and camaraderie,” said Pearl chief marketing officer Elizabeth Fauerso.

The new tenants include:

Bud’s Southern Rotisserie, specializing in Southern comfort food with a soul deep in the heart of Louisiana. Pieter and Susan Sypesteyn of Cookhouse and NOLA Brunch & Beignets are behind the venture. The menu will revolve around Bud’s slow-cooked porchetta and signature rotisserie chicken, which will make for a fast casual dining experience that is heartwarming and mouthwatering. Guests can choose from side dishes jambalaya, Cajun cornbread, candied yams, potatoes roasted in drippings, and more.

Fetcher’s

Fletcher’s, an all-American hamburger concept from chef Sergio Remolina. Focused on quality ingredients, the unique patty is made of a short rib, chuck, and brisket blend and served with artisan lettuce and sugar cane ketchup on brioche buns from Tribeca Ovens. The menu will also feature hot dog sausages made from 100 percent organic Texas Akaushi beef, organic chicken from Red Bird Farms and milk shakes.

Maybelle’s, a doughnut shop from Charlie Biedenharn, Anne Ng, and Jeremy Mandrell, the team behind Bakery Lorraine. The shop will offer gourmet donuts made fresh daily, kolaches, fried pies and Merit coffee.

Tenko, a ramen bar and first fast casual concept from industry veterans chef Quealy Watson (of The Monterey and Hot Joy) and business partner Jennifer Dobbertin. The menu focuses on ramen and a handful of small Japanese accompaniments with dishes such as the spicy miso tonkotsu ramen, crispy barbacoa gyozas with togarashi salsa ranch and chicken fajita karaage with black pepper ponzu.

Tenko Ramen

The Good Kind, a modern market and cafe from Tim McDiarmid, offering food and lifestyle choices that encourage a more balanced and sustainable life. The Good Kind is food you feel good about eating everyday and is based on the vision of providing the San Antonio community with food that is clean, nourishing, sustainable, and delicious.

Originally constructed in 1894, the Pearl Bottling House was destroyed in a fire in 2003. Clayton & Little Architects were responsible for the redesign and pulled its architectural cues from historic photos and original drawings. Many salvaged materials were incorporated into the building façade, restoring the building and reviving the classic little jewel. The tile throughout is handmade and meant to resemble a tile pattern from archival photos. Bottling Department is 5,500 square feet. Adjacent to Pearl Park, The Bottling Department will offer guests a place to dine, drink, and relax while enjoying interactive water features, the nearly two-acre lawn of Pearl Park, and the abundant shade of the Pearl Pavilion.

The Bottling Department will be open Sunday through Thursday, 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Friday and Saturday, 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. Maybelle and The Good Kind will be the only purveyors open for breakfast. For more information visit www.bottlingdept.com.

A Summer of Music and Barbecue Awaits at The County Line

A Summer of Music and Barbecue Awaits at The County Line

The Ancira Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram 2017 Live Music Series at The County Line, which benefits the San Antonio Food Bank, is back for its 17th year— again on Thursday nights.  This very popular live music series will run through Aug. 28 at The County Line Bar-B-Q restaurant at 10101 I-10 W.

Full seating and dining will again be available on the patio beginning each concert night at 6 p.m. through the end of the concert at 9:30 p.m. Happy hour will run inside and outside of the restaurant, from 3 to 9:30 p.m. on concert days.

As always, this live music series is free. However, all who attend are asked to make a food or monetary donation to the San Antonio Food Bank.  Since the series started in 2001, it has funded 774,679 meals because of the $94,278.50 and 48,804 pounds of food donated to the Food Bank by County Line concert-goers.   In 2015, the County Line was recognized by the San Antonio Food Bank for raising enough food to feed more than 1 million people since the series’ start. 

Held on the restaurant’s open-air patio, the headliner goes on at 7:30 p.m. Concerts are held rain or shine.  Free parking is available at Hallmark College, less than one block away on I-10 access road.

“Randy Goss was a food guy extraordinaire, and he knew that someone who couldn’t eat would have trouble working, studying, or simply living a health life.  His commitment to feeding the hungry lives on with the County Line Music Series, and we are humbled to be the conduit for the community’s support to nourish those in need,”  says Eric S. Cooper, president and CEO of the San Antonio Food Bank. Sponsors thus far include Ancira Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram; Rebecca Creek; Enchanted Rock Vodka; Twilight Services; KSYM 90.1 FM; Comfort Air; Red Bull; Ozarka; Hallmark College; and Pure Party Ice.

County Line’s Friday Night Live series will also begin again April 7. Held on the restaurant’s patio, FNL features full-service dining under the stars, with San Antonio’s favorite singers/songwriters/musicians—usually acoustical—performing from 7 to 10 p.m. through Aug. 25.

Held on the restaurant’s plush outdoor patio (weather permitting), FNL features full-service dining under the stars, with San Antonio’s favorite singers/songwriters/musicians.  Diners can come early for Happy Hour in the restaurant’s bar, patio and dining room from 3 to 7 p.m.  Reservations are welcome; call 210-641-1998 to reserve a table, at no charge. In the case of inclement weather, the concerts will be canceled, so call restaurant for update.
