GBG’s extensive menu includes Certified Angus Beef (CAB) burgers, chicken and turkey burgers, and specialty burgers made of lamb, Maryland-style crab cakes, Ahi tuna, Portobello mushrooms, Kobe beef, North American Bison and vegetarian patties. Burgers are served on sourdough and whole-grain wheat rolls that are baked each day to ensure guests enjoy the freshest ingredients.
Options such as crinkle-cut and sweet potato fries, beer-battered onion rings and battered mac-and-cheese wedges are popular sides, as well as an assortment of salads. Soups are created each morning and include favorites such as Roasted Pumpkin Bisque, Turkey Chili, Smoked Gouda Bisque, and New England Clam Chowder.
Another distinguishing characteristic of GBG’s menu is its vast array of cheeses, sauces and toppings. Twelve cheeses are offered, including Camembert, fresh mozzarella, and goat cheese, along with 28 sauces and toppings, ranging from basil pesto aioli and chipotle mayo to apple-smoked bacon, mango avocado salsa, grilled pineapple and fried eggs.
On a healthy note, all fried foods are prepared using zero trans-fats, and each burger can be served on a lettuce wrap for a low-carbohydrate dining alternative. Finally, as an additional gourmet treat, all GBG sauces and salad dressings are made in-house from scratch.
Owner Jorge Cosio, a veteran restaurateur originally from Mexico City, drew inspiration for the GBG concept from restaurants in London, Las Vegas and New York City. He teamed with Chef Mike Davis to bring the unique restaurant to fruition. Davis, who has worked with such celebrated chefs as Emeril Lagasse and Mario Batali, has more than 20 years of experience, including five years as Executive Chef at Piatti Ristorante in the Alamo Quarry Market.
Any list of civilized amenities that the seventh-largest city in the United States ought not to do without has to include — along with a concert hall, major-league baseball, light rail, and Equity theater — a vegetarian restaurant. The list shrank dramatically on January 22 with the opening on North Flores, just beyond downtown, of Green, which bills itself as “San Antonio’s first all-vegetarian restaurant.”
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)

Salsa is extremely good here. Dishes are interesting and exciting vs. familiar and soul.
Fast Food Salads. Get huge customized salads and wraps made right in front of you by their Salad Chefs. Fresh ingredients and the general public is not touching your food like at a salad bar.

Fresh, piquant, and authentic Thai cuisine makes it hard to pick a favorite dish, but we’re currently stuck on Rice of the Drunks and the Chicken Larb.
Justly famous for its fish tacos, the Cove is also a good location for locavores and vegetarians thanks to owner Lisa Asvestas’s commitment to sustainable food sources (she can tell you where to find raw milk, too). Beer and wine tastings, plus live music and the adjacent laundromat make it a one-stop lifestyle shop without the Austin attitude.
Homestyle sandwiches in a green garden setting. Air conditioning available.

A vegetarian in Texas is a stranger in a strange land. In the countryside, steaks-in-waiting graze for miles and miles, and in the urban environs, vegetarians are greeted by Texas Land and Cattle, Outback Steakhouse, barbacoa, and menudo. What's a sprout-muncher to do? Whether you drop in for lunch at the downtown location at Broadway and Travis or enjoy a leisurely Saturday morning breakfast at the North New Braunfels locale, Twin Sisters is a vegetarian's paradise. - Lisa Sorg

It won’t appear in full-performance until the Tobin Center opens in 2014, but The Opera San Antonio will preview its world class talent in a gala performance that promises to be dazzling. Soprano Patricia Racette, a regular performer at the San Francisco and Metropolitan Operas, and Texas-based tenor Jay Hunter Morris headline with the San Antonio Symphony. Pieces to be performed span opera repertoire from Handel to today, with works by American composer Leonard Bernstein and TOSA artistic director Tobias Picker, and classics by Verdi, Puccini, and Wagner. A rendition of Jerome Kern’s “Ol’ Man River,” by renowned bass-baritone Eric Owens, gives the lineup a populist twist. Also included are Dolora Zajick, Daniela Mack, Alek Schrader, Lucas Meachem, and Lisette Oropesa.
Sami Akbari, who records and performs under the cheeky nom de plume sami.the.great, is possessed by a gentle vocal talent that lends tremendous emotional depth to her sweet and searching pop songs. Lyrically sharp and earnest all at once, as on her latest single “Hear Me Now,” sami.the.great calls upon her diverse life experience — having lived in the Middle East, Virginia, and now Brooklyn — to construct songs that effortlessly incorporate electronics, folky strums, piano, and sometimes groovy percussion in a refreshingly natural manner. Still touring on 2012’s well-received self-titled album, she brings her unique reading of contemporary adult pop music to 502 as something of an anomaly — rarely is an artist so adept at provoking such seemingly conflicting responses as empty smiles, emotional gusts, thought-filled stares, and happy feet. $10, 9pm Thursday, 502 Bar, 502 Embassy Oaks, (210) 257-8125, 502bar.com.
At the ripe old age of 10, Chloe Chaidez formed Wild Youth, a band that covered songs by Sigur Rós and David Bowie. Now 18, Chaidez fronts Kitten, a Los Angeles-based five-piece inspired by the synth-driven sounds of the Eurythmics and the Pet Shop Boys. With only the EPs Sunday School (2010) and Cut it Out (2012) to their credit, Kitten have played SXSW, toured with Paramore, opened for No Doubt, and garnered praise from Carson Daly and Teen Vogue. Daughter of Mike Chaidez (former drummer for the punk band Thee Undertakers), Chloe grew up listening to Siouxsie and the Banshees and has cited the late Ian Curtis as a stylistic influence. These dark spirits mesh with others in Kitten’s tracks, which fall somewhere between the ’80s-inspired electronica of Class Actress and the dark drama of Bat for Lashes.
Foreign film buffs might know Chile’s Sebastián Silva from his Sundance Film Festival hits The Maid (which took home two World Cinema Jury Prizes in 2009) and this year’s Crystal Fairy (starring indie fave Michael Cera opposite Gaby Hoffmann). True fans, however, will tell you to start at the beginning. Released in 2007, Silva’s Life Kills Me deftly combines the ironic melancholia of The Smiths, the dark comedy of Harold and Maude, and a bizarre film within a film into a morbid sleeper suggesting death might be smarter to embrace than to fear. Shot almost entirely in black and white, the openly gay director, screenwriter, painter, and musician’s cinematic debut screens at SAMA in conjunction with Global Lens 2013, a touring series launched by the Global Film Initiative in 2003.
Regarded as one of the architects of contemporary R&B, 10-time Grammy winner Kenny “Babyface” Edmonds brings heartfelt and impeccable music for grown folks to the Lila Cockrell stage on Friday. After writing and producing hits for Bobby Brown in the late ’80s, Edmonds joined former bandmate Antonio “L.A.” Reid to create LaFace Records, propelling acts like TLC, Toni Braxton, and Usher into the public consciousness. By the end of the ’90s the young producer was responsible for 42 No. 1 R&B hits and 51 Top 10 Pop hits. A gifted performer in his own right, fans can expect plenty of material from his 11 solo albums, including classics like “Whip Appeal” and “For the Cool in You,” which recall an era of R&B when records didn’t necessarily require 16 bars to make it on the radio.
