This urban wine inspired restaurant is located in the heart of San Antonio just 5 miles north of the River walk, and minutes south of the airport. Highway 29 that runs through Napa Valley inspired the restaurant’s name. The oversized patio with water fountain creates the perfect atmosphere to enjoy wine and appetizers or a four-course dinner. The bar and lounge area offers a trendy, stylish, urban setting for serious wine drinkers to sit back and enjoy a “Road Trip”. All road trips arrive with “wine itineraries” (tasting notes) for the “traveler” to refer to as they are sipping each glass. We specialize in wine country cuisine; Executive Chef Stefan Bowers has created an eclectic menu & makes seasonal changes to showcase fresh fruits, vegetables, and meats.

Maybe this Brazilian steakhouse sounds a little gimmicky, but the perfectly seared meat served on swords by waiters in gauchos needs no apology. Nor does the salad bar, which puts its American counterparts to shame. Go very hungry. -- Bonnie Walker (06/09)
Bet on the beef and don't sweat the sides; Fleming's high marks are accrued by its steaks and martinis. If you're set on accompaniment, try the Fleming's Potatoes. The au gratin dish with cream, cheddar cheese, and jalapeno is rich and pillowy.
Everything from scratch. A nice healthy blend of raw food, vegetarian and meat dishes, pizzas, soups, salads, teas and espresso. Enjoy indoor/outdoor dining in a very artistic environment.
The entrees are healthier and less Tex than Mex by SA standards, but the chips and salsa outshine the main menu. Don't skip dessert, though, even if the only veggie you ate was salsa. Vegetarian entree options available. -- Clint Hale (11/08)
San Antonio has spent lavishly on Houston Street for the very purpose of equalizing the traffic. We have widened sidewalks in anticipation of the madding crowds. There are lighted palm trees and the vaunted connection at Presa Street between Houston and the River - a stairway and associated water feature calculated to "suck" people up off the River Walk. Unfortunately, the water feature is as often featuring mud as not, and the Presa-connection public art, a series of neon-illuminated, etched glass "manhole covers" set into the sidewalk as way-finding runway lights, hasn't functioned fully since its installation. (It's useless during the day even when working properly.) Should you, despite all odds, actually make it to Houston Street - past the handsome, and brave, glass gallery and the Buckhorn's enthusiastic, bless 'em, barkers - your first big urban experience is a view of a parking lot. A real crowd-pleaser every time.
This is all a shame, for Houston Street doesn't need to be our very own Boulevard of Broken Dreams. There is already a lot to offer: Between the brash Buckhorn and the posh, new Valencia hotel alone there are several cultural and commercial attractions - the Children's Museum and the Majestic and Empire Theatres among them - worth the attention of locals and visitors alike. And there are classy bars and upscale restaurants, pioneers on an underpopulated frontier. In addition to strategic and inventive marketing, the street needs the bars and the restaurants. Among the first to stake a claim was the Houston Street Bistro, and their most recent reward for vision and perseverance has been the canceling of the final portion of the symphony's season in the adjacent Majestic. So much for the prix-fixe, pre-theater menu - at least on symphony nights. - Ron Bechtol
Highly popular and therefore crowded American restaurant with a sort of generic interior but not a bad spot.
A fun, contemporary steakhouse chain out of Dallas that gets the most important details right. Not as swanky as Morton's, but not as stuffy, either.
Beer bottlecaps crunch under your feet under the city’s best tree canopy. Such is the atmosphere at La Tuna, a Southtown fixture where bikers and artists peacefully coexist over cheap beers in the shadow of one of SA’s coolest industrial backdrops.
The cowgirl outfits and suffocating ranch memorabilia aren’t satirical, podna, and the dirt-bottom prices are the real-deal, too. Don’t feel like you have to finish the enormous and satisfying Porterhouse in one sitting.
Little Rhein Steak House is a Riverwalk institution where side dishes are served family style (and priced to match) and where, as the name suggests, the menu is heavy on red meat. There's not much to do "better" if you nail the rare/medium/well requests of various diners, and Little Rhein did that. Families with something to celebrate- and an unstoppable commitment to red meat- mignt find now is the time to take their festivities back to the river. - Retha Oliver

Penned in 1816 by German author E. T. A. Hoffmann, The Nutcracker and the Mouse King formed the fantastical springboard for the Tchaikovsky-scored two-act ballet The Nutcracker. Premiered in 1892 in St. Petersburg, Russia, with choreography by Marius Petipa and Lev Ivanov, the holiday mainstay has inspired an eclectic array of adaptations—from B. Bumble and the Stingers’ boogie-woogie hit “Nut Rocker” to the burlesque satire The Slutcracker. Choreographed by Gabriel Zertuche and conducted by Akiko Fujimoto, this local production unites Ballet San Antonio and the San Antonio Symphony for dancing around the Christmas tree, a war between gingerbread soldiers and menacing mice, and an enchanting voyage in a dolphin-powered boat to meet the Sugar Plum Fairy in the Land of Sweets.
Lady Gaga may be trying to shove “art pop” down our throats, but critics increasingly recognize Kanye West as the king of the avant-garde/radio top 40 hybrid. New York magazine’s art critic Jerry Saltz credited the rapper’s insane “Bound 2” video with creating “a collective cultural fracturing … that I call the New Uncanny.” None other than the late Lou Reed reviewed West’s Yeezus, a deeply polarizing album that dropped this summer (“lookout, this guy is making connections,” wrote Reed about West’s ability to merge hip-hop with other “high art” pursuits). Now, reviews of his Yeezus Tour describe the effort as “an energetic, artistically ambitious and at times majestic ‘concept’ concert.” The spectacle includes cultish back-up dancers, a jeweled facemask, two mountains, White Jesus, snow and more. Take that, Gaga. Kendrick Lamar opens.
The book Tamales, Comadres and the Meaning of Civilization reminds that tamales have served as “one of the keys to the survival of humans for the last 7,000 years in the Americas.” Deceptively simple in appearance, these holiday staples can prove quite challenging to make, which is the premise behind Alicia Mena’s Las Nuevas Tamaleras. Since its 1993 debut, the production has emerged as a favorite fans consider “as much a tradition with the San Antonio community as The Nutcracker.” Touching on the hard work, bonding and mishaps intrinsic to Yuletide tamaladas, Mena’s one-act comedy stars Kinya Cano, Melissa Silva and Sonia Rodriguez as first-time tamaleras who get an unexpected assist from the ghosts of tamal experts Doña Juanita (Rita Duggan) and Doña Mercedes (Lorraine Pulido).
December 8 marks the 33rd anniversary of the murder of John Lennon at the hands (gun) of an idiot whose name I don’t want to remember. Lifelong Beatles/John fan Jenny Luna started the Lennon Lives celebration with a mixed bag last year. Dozens of local artists did their best to cover Lennon’s songs and, as is usually the case at events like this, some succeeded and some didn’t. This year, those paying tribute to John include the Rosedale Highs, Tera Ferna, lovelettertypewriter, Jeremiah Bredvad, Christina Quick and more. But this is more than just about music: the tribute fest is free, and all you need to get in is non-perishable food, a blanket, warm clothing and/or toys to benefit the needy, and stay until the end for the candle vigil. I didn’t know the man personally, but something tells me John would be OK with that.
When it comes to blues piano, nine-time Blues Music Awards-winner Marcia Ball is the full package: an exhilarating combination of Texas roots and Louisiana blues, a terrific song selection (as of late, mostly written or co-written by her) and solid albums (the latest of which, Roadside Attractions, earned her a fifth Grammy nomination). Born in Orange, TX, she grew up in Vinton, La., but moved to Austin by accident in 1970, when her car broke down on her way to San Francisco and she fell in love with the Lone Star capital. She’s at her best in a live setting and Sam’s is the perfect-sounding venue for her, so get close to the stage and bring your dancing shoes and your partner—the Queen of Boogie-Woogie can sing heart-melting ballads too. With Austin-based soul, pop and R&B diva Lauren Silva.
On display will be three of Gassiot’s sculptural video installations: Empty Crib, Every Bath, and Circadian Rhythm. Brooke Gassiot is a Texas native, currently based in Austin. Her work has recently been featured in the East Austin Studio Tour, and at the Art Car Museum (Houston, TX) and Red Arrow Contemporary (Dallas, TX). That same evening The Lullwood Studios will host a small works sale in honor of the holiday season—a great opportunity to pick up unique gifts and support your local art community.
