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.
29 Brix is no longer open. It has been recast as an upscale Mexican cantina.

Come down and enjoy our late night hours or stop by and pick up your specialty order. Owned, operated, and made with love by Sisters April & Ashley.
A Tempo is the fourth iteration of this restaurant in search of an identity. Talented chefs have come and gone, leaving a few dishes in their wake—some of which work. Most of the restaurant space does not.
Ácenar is not Mi Tierra with a snazzier paint job. With the exception of some slick color photos of nibbled galletas, paletas, and dulces - and maybe the noise level - there's not much at all in the highly charged interior that suggests Tex-Mex, classic or contemporary. In fact, the clever use of a molcajete grid on the patio takes us back to a much earlier era.
The same might be said for the menu: It's divided into San Antonio Tex-Mex Favorites and Ácenar Specialties, and it's not clear at first glance whether the SA favorites are alleged to be updated, or if all the tweaking took place in the specialties section. An appetizer such as the house-smoked salmon nachos with discrete black beans and dill crema looks much like the classic cosa, but the taste is altogether otra. And it works, despite the rarity of both dill and smoked salmon in any Mexican kitchen, traditional or Tex. - Ron Bechtol
Achiote's pan-Latino menu promises more than it delivers, but the roast pork with yellow rice is succulent and the homey rice pudding satisfying. Terrace seating on the River Walk is pleasant. -- Ron Bechtol (08/08)
Award-winning Mediterranean-Lebanese-American franchise offering falaffel, fresh soups daily, hummos, baba, salads, shiskebobs, rolled pitas, large selection of vegetarian menu.
Good food, cold beer, reasonable prices and portions. Food trailers have finally come to Southtown, and it was worth the wait.
Aldaco's Stone Oak outpost remains true to its downtown roots with fresh, flavorful Mex and signature treats, including the avocado margarita and pastel tres leches. -- Ron Bechtol (02/09)
Well, OK. It's a strip club. But it does have a damn tasty buffet.
Beautiful garden setting with peacocks and Asain phesants roaming the grounds. Diverse menu apealing to all tastes with an array of desserts and specialty drinks.
Great seafood at moderate prices.

Although not normally found under the same roof, Thai and Filipino foodstuffs are like ebony and ivory at this local Asian market.

Asian Charro makes their egg rolls from scratch at their restaurant and boy, are they appetizing.

With the opening of Athens Greek Xpress, City Hall employees (and others) may have to get used to paying a little more, but they will also be getting far healthier food in a shiny-bright environment with pleasant, quick service.
With oysters on the menu and a wine bar out back, Augie's is not your average "Q" joint. Go for the pork ribs and brisket, and stay for the rest.
Finally, a bona fide Moroccan restaurant has arrived, bringing the sophisticated tastes of Casablanca to the North Side. Try the savory harira soup, meat-filled brewat rolls, and seafood bastilla- wrapped in delicate pastry leaves. A house specialty — the Meshoui, roast lamb shanks braised in a rich eggplant, tomato, and zucchini.
Pushing boundaries for 29 years, Jump-Start Performance Co. is an SA institution rooted in experimentation and collaboration. A former fixture in the Blue Star Arts Complex, the performance art troupe unveils a mysterious new production this week in its new Beacon Hill space. Directed by Marisela Barrera and developed through “a rehearsal process of performance experiments, improvisation and story-sharing,” Oscuridad plays out during the final hours of a doomed cantina frequented by shadowy characters La Lechuza, Fantasma, El Señor, the Handless Maid and La Muerte.
“These Words Are Bound,” presented by SATX Music and Die Happy Productions, is a great chance to catch a smattering of up-and-coming local/regional hip-hop talent and give to those in need. The unique event, which will feature hip-hop performances, live art and food trucks in the tranquil setting of Blackgold Emporium and The Little Patch Garden, doubles as a book drive for the Eastside Promise Neighborhood. We are especially excited about peeping SA rapper LaJIT (above), whose brooding and unapologetically personal flows, delivered with razor alacrity, make him one the most exciting emcees in town.
Datpiff.com is awesome and free, but their most-listened-to mixtapes currently include five from Lil Wayne and three from Wiz Khalifa, so those seeking the newest thing in hip-hop might be better off going outside. Art of War challenges MCs and beat-makers to deliver the goods live in original-track battles. Not all will be good, but some will be great and you probably never would’ve thought to Google any of them. That goes triple for break dancing and graffiti, well represented here but mostly discovered online via YouTube roulette. $8-$12, 8pm-2am Friday, 3pm-2am Saturday, The White Rabbit, 2410 N St. Mary's; $5, 8pm-2am Sunday, Limelight, 2718 N St. Mary’s.
It’s a who’s who among Latinos in the music, film, TV, media, health, fashion and sports industries, as the Alamo City welcomes a host of celebrities to the 2014 Festival People en Español this weekend. Among the stars to join the festivities and treat patrons to musical performances, speaking engagements and special Q&A panels include actresses Génesis Rodríguez (The Last Stand) and Cristela Alonzo (ABC’s Cristela), actor Eduardo Verástegui (Bella), film director Miguel Arteta (Cedar Rapids), Spanish TV icon Don Francisco of Sabado Gigante fame (pictured) and professional boxer Saúl “Canelo” Álvarez. Hosted by CNN’s Alejandra Orra and Azteca TV’s Poncho De Anda, both days begin with a Zumba class taught by local fitness instructor Mario Gómez and the Dále Fitness Team. Exercise will be followed with a concert by Mariachi Vargas Extravaganza on Saturday and Texas-based all-sister group Las Fenix on Sunday. Other performances throughout the weekend include singers Priscila Ángel, Gabriel Coronel and Jaci Velásquez. The festival is free, but if you want to pony up some cash, there is a concert next door at the Lila Cockrell Theatre on Saturday featuring urban pop artists Becky G. and Zendaya that’ll set you back $20-$60.
Up and coming artist Megan Solis, is from San Antonio and has already established a distinctive style as an urban contemporary painter. She approaches the medium of art with graffiti and a pop art style that creates a fresh illustrative air for her artworks.
