Dough Pizzeria Napoletana – Tier 1 – Lunch and dinner
I love pizza, especially fancy pizza with incredible topping combinations that make you feel as though you’re not eating 1,000 calories per bite. If it has arugula on top of the cheese, the pizza is healthy, right? Anyways, Dough is one of our favorite places to go when we’re craving a slice. During Restaurant Week, Dough will feature a three course menu including a radicchio, endive and arugula salad, speck and acorn squash pizza, and triple chocolate ricotta cheesecake for dessert. You can also add wine pairing for an additional $20.

Bliss – Tier 1 – Dinner
Bliss is going all out for Restaurant Week! For an appetizer, you have a choice of chicken fried oysters, pork belly, a hamachi tostada, kale caesar, or wedge salad with bleu cheese. If you thought that was a difficult decision, Bliss’s main entree choices will leave you wanting more – sea scallops, a vegan platter with lentils, asparagus, cauliflower and more, lamb loin chops, short ribs paired with buttery mashed potatoes, snapper and shrimp risotto, or beef tenderloin. Can we choose more than one, please? For dessert, chocolate cake, cheesecake and sorbet is on the menu. Take your pick! You can add an optional wine pairing for an extra $25.

Liberty Bar ExteriorOther tier 1 restaurants include Kimura, Liberty Bar, Market on Houston, Nao, Nectar Wine Bar & Ale House, Shuck Shack, Southerleigh, Zinc and many others that can be found here.

alchemyIf you’re looking to enjoy San Antonio Restaurant Week without going over your budget, Alchemy Kombucha and Culture, Smoke and Tacos and Tequila are three of the featured tier 2 restaurants.

This citywide event will highlight many of the best local chefs and restaurants, including both new additions to San Antonio’s culinary scene and beloved mainstays. All participating restaurants will donate a portion of their proceeds to benefit Culinaria’s Urban Farm. With each meal ordered for San Antonio Restaurant Week, participating restaurants will donate $1 from each lunch menu and $2 from each dinner menu ordered. Reservations are encouraged, and you can contact each establishment directly.
