The seafood is flown in fresh from the Pacific, says Ricardo Mora, one of the owners.

“We’re very excited to be opening in San Antonio,” he says. “We see a huge potential for growth with our food.”

The emphasis of the menu is the flavors of Mazatlan and the Sinaloa region, which is on the Pacific coast.

A chef’s private tasting bar is coming. A full bar is offered along with a numerous Mexican beers.

Live music is coming on weekends.

Mora knows not everyone is a seafood fan. For those who have to have some more grounded, you can always bring an order over from Taco Tote.

Weissman to Take Over Former Liberty Bar Site


Andrew Weissman is taking over this iconic site.

One of San Antonio’s premier chefs, Andrew Weissman, is buying one of the city’s most iconic buildings, the tilted, weather-beaten beauty on Josephine Street that once housed the Liberty Bar.

Weissman is planning on opening Minnie’s Tavern in the historic building at 328 E. Josephine St. It will open by late January.

The name refers to a member of the Fritz Boehler family, who lived in the building while he worked as brewmaster of the Pearl Brewery. Weissman has discovered a great deal of history about the building and plans on using it within the restaurant.

Minnie’s Tavern will feature brasserie-style food, such as steak frites and mussels, as well as a number of beers and wines on tap. “It will have a limited menu,” says the chef, who owns Il Sogno and the Sandbar, both in the nearby Pearl Brewery complex.

Those who want a cocktail will be able to get one at the Rye House, which Weissman is planning for the small house at the back of the property. The Rye House won’t open at the beginning, but plans are for it to be ready several months down the road.

The current resident of the building, Boehler’s, will stay open until the title is transferred.

Meanwhile, work is progressing on Weissman’s other upcoming project, the Luxury, a food truck park.

He realizes the irony of starting up a new place in a short amount of time while work on a previous project that has taken much longer, but that’s the restaurant business.
