San Antonio is full of mindful chefs who do their absolute best to source the freshest, most highly-crafted and thoughtfully-raised ingredients, which isn't always easy in the blazing Texas sun. Still, these artisan makers are the best of the best and a meal at these incredible restaurant is guaranteed to be exceptional!
Few make more of an effort to source locally and make healthful scratch food than Chef Elizabeth Johnson from Pharm Table, which recently opened the doors to its new location in the Southtown Arts District. You can eat here with a carefree heart knowing that everything on your plate – soups, broths, salads, tacos made with heirloom tortillas, pizzas, etc. – is meant to nourish you, and that includes dessert! It's notably a hot spot for brunch on Sundays.
For some absolutely luscious seasonal dishes inspired by global flavors, made by one of San Antonio's most talented husband and wife teams, head to Clementine on the northside. Here, we recommend throwing caution to the wind and ordering the "Feed Me" prix fixe dinner to take advantage of the chefs' current inspirations and the freshest ingredients!
For something low-key but still truly amazing, order a stunningly scrumptious charc board from The Board Couple. Why not plan a picnic in the park with someone special and impress them with some fun, fresh and fancy foods? They're so local they even make their own boards!
