Brigid Oysters Brigid, located in a cozy, unassuming building in Southtown on 803 South St. Mary’s, is now going to be one of those places that I have to take people who are looking for something unique. They are currently undergoing a menu change to reflect the different influences of the five chefs and we were able to get in on the fun. With the chef’s experiences ranging from training at Le Cordon Bleu to South America, Brigid features a wide variety of flavors. Each new plate placed in front of me seemed to somehow be better than the first!

Brigid Braised Beef Throughout the night we were presented several starters, salads, and main dishes. My favorite meal of the night was the braised short rib ragù with house-made pappardelle (a noodle similar to wide fettuccine) and garden basil. The freshwater ruby trout was also really good with a corn succotash and emulsion with dirty brown rice.
Brigid scallop As a person with a major sweet tooth it is safe to say that I loved the desserts. We were served a lemon pound cake with cream and strawberries, house-made sorbets, and a chocolate cannoli with chocolate mousse. It was hard to put my spoon down! While the desserts frequently vary, the featured sorbets were coconut, sangria, cantaloupe, and strawberry basil. Each dish was garnished and plated beautifully, making it even more enjoyable. Brigid Dessert Brigid offers an extensive wine list featuring wines by the glass for $8 to $16 and a multitude that are sold by the bottle. The waiters were happy to help you if you needed to be guided to a wine that suited you. There were also many popular choices on the cocktail list like the “sage it ain’t so” with sage infused vodka, strega, cochi Americano, sugar, and lemon. Additionally, if you are in the area but not feeling like a full dinner or while you wait to be seated, you can visit Brigid’s connected sister bar, Francis Bogside. Brigid Interior The mood throughout the restaurant was relaxed with blue velvet chairs, candles, gold accents, and capacity for only 55 people. Everyone was talking about how they felt as though they had been transported outside of San Antonio to a posh New York restaurant. If you are looking for a getaway for the night, or for Sunday brunch, make sure to visit Brigid! The hours are 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday, Sunday brunch from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., and Sunday dinner from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.
