Culinaria's San Antonio Restaurant Week 2013 Is Almost Here!

August in San Antonio is hot…as in really, really hot. That means we need to plan lots of fun activities to take our minds off the ever-present heat. One of our most favorite August events is the annual Culinaria Restaurant Week! This year’s event is coming up the week of August 17-24, so I wanted to share a sneak preview with you today. Restaurants all over San Antonio will offer customers reduced-price multi-course menus for both lunch and dinner. This is a fantastic way to visit a great restaurant and enjoy an appetizer, entrĂ©e and dessert for a lower-than-usual price point. Participating restaurants will offer lunch menus for $15, and dinners menus are $35. That’s a STEAL for a three-course gourmet dining experience! This year’s participating restaurants run the gamut from local classics to hot newcomers…and all types of cuisines are included.

That means there’s literally something for everyone, no matter what type of food you like best! New to this year's event is Restaurant Week on the Move. This fun new feature is for food  lovers who are looking for a more casual dining experience by enjoying the best in local food truck fare. The food truck scene in San Antonio is really popular, so this is sure to be a very welcome Restaurant Week addition! These  menu prices are only $8 for lunch and $15 for dinner, making it both an economical and a family-friendly option. Some of the participating food trucks this year include: Duk Truck, Cheesy Janes, Saweet Cupcakes and Say. She. Ate. 

Culinaria Restaurant Week is also ideal for trying out new restaurants you've been hearing rave reviews about...or to visit a favorite culinary destination. The San Antonio restaurant scene has really been booming the past few years, and now is theirtime to shine! For a look at all of this year’s participating restaurants – including their featured menus – simply visit the Culinaria Restaurant Week website and start browsing. Michael and I very excited to visit Myron’s Prime Steakhouse for Restaurant Week for this month’s The Weekend Gourmet Dines Out feature. We have been meaning to pay Myron's Prime a visit, and this is the perfect opportunity to make that happen! Here's a sneak peek of their menu selections:
