In the lobby of the Emily Morgan Hotel, guests will find pure gold – the ORO Restaurant and Bar. Spanish for "gold," ORO provides diners in San Antonio with a superb culinary dining experience that centers upon Executive Chef Moses Cruz's regional Texas cuisine.
Open daily for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and with high-speed wireless Internet service throughout the restaurant and bar, ORO features a daily Happy Hour from 5:00 to 7:00pm with drink specials available. The ORO margarita was recently selected as the "Best Margarita in all of San Antonio." The extensive martini menu has been rated as one of the top three in all of San Antonio.
For San Antonio fine dining, ORO offers a spectacular new menu each season served in one of the most stunning dining rooms in all of San Antonio. The sophisticated space features dark wood floors, high-backed booths, chairs upholstered in smoked-salmon colored fabric, and subtle lighting of custom-made fabric cones and votive candles.
Here's a promise: In writing about Oro, there will be no cheap references to "good as gold," "gold standard," "fool's gold," etc. Although it's tempting, very tempting. My first comment does have to do with gold as a color: The faded blue denim shirts on the waiters have to go - with the possible exception of the one on our waiter. (It matched his eyes, according to a dining companion who notices such things.) As a part of last year's redo of the Emily Morgan, Oro rose from the ashes of the utterly undistinguished Yellow Rose Café. Now garbed in golds and deep browns, illuminated by handsome fabric pendants, sconces, and votive candles, and sporting such flagrantly opulent touches as an alabaster bar glowing from lights placed beneath, the restaurant has an air of elegance rivaled by few in the city. The second-string waitstaff is garbed in black, tunic-style jackets. So what's with the denim? Think of an evening at Oro as theater, and you'll understand where I'm coming from. Thinking of the menu as Modern Italian, as it claims to be, may help define its direction some, but isn't really necessary to enjoyment of the meal. - Ron Bechtol
Paloma Blanca's old location, inherited from another Mexican restaurant with a long history, was low-ceilinged and cozy, with venerable murals and an intimate bar. The new digs, on the other hand, are multi-leveled, expansive, and cool - almost aloof - with a monochromatic color scheme, minimal decor, and dramatic lighting. The old menu has been slipped into this finery without a whisper - very Cinderella. If you liked the nachos rancheros before, you'll still find them here. Ditto the tacos al pastor, the tostadas de ceviche, and the quesadilla al carbon.Among other old favorites on the menu are the always-dependable enchiladas de la casa, the chicken "Divorciadas" with "irreconcilable " rice separating the verde from the ranchera sauces. The enchiladas San Miguel, both filled and topped with mushrooms in pungent guajillo sauce, may be the winners in this category. They reminded us of the emotive power of simple, earthy ingredients treated with respect - and then garnished with just a little bit of luxe, which in this case was some shredded queso cotijo. - Ron Bechtol

A near Southside ice house, practically under I-35, where the beer is appropriately cheap, the condiments are self-serve, and you dancers work out to Tejano on warm summer nights. -- Lyle Rosdahl (02/09)
