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.

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.

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.
Parisian Kraut-surf outfit La Femme is … actually before we say anything else about the band, let’s just acknowledge the ridiculousness of the words we’ve already typed. French pop that’s equal parts Dick Dale and Kraftwerk (or, more accurately, something kind of like that, but not really) is a thing that exists, thanks to La Femme, and now we have to figure out how to write about it. Imagine the B-52s swapped their Pink Flamingos trailer-park chic for Breathless detached cool (or occasionally that fuzzy-wuzzy French teacher Muzzy rapping over an old James Bond theme). If you think that description sucks, keep in mind that the title of last year’s full-length party-starter, Psycho Tropical Berlin, is probably no closer to actually telling you what the hell’s going on. Just go hear it for yourselves. With Portland-based dream-pop outfit Wild Ones, brooding Los Angeles duo In the Valley Below, Canadian indie-rockers July Talk and many more.
Likened to Patsy Cline by producer Gordon Raphael, 17-year-old, Texas-based French singer-songwriter Victoria Celestine celebrates the release of her new CD Back Home in San Antone with a concert featuring Juanito Castillo and an after-party with Zydeco Blanco.
In addition to its 20th anniversary, Southtown’s own SAY Sí has a lot to celebrate. Launched in 1994 under the King William Neighborhood Association’s umbrella, the nonprofit has evolved from a modest operation serving 12 students to a full-time “creative youth development organization” with an enrollment of 200, community outreach benefiting upwards of 3,000 and a new game design program in the works. Not surprisingly, SAY Sí’s signature fundraiser Small Scale Works for a Larger Cause has followed this growth curve, expanding from an auction with 26 participants to a full-blown affair gathering works by 200-plus local, regional and national artists. While the main event doesn’t take place until March 21, avid collectors can jump the gun with the “buy it now” option at Thursday’s private preview and awards ceremony or First Friday’s free reception. Promising “a spectrum of one-of-a-kind art pieces ranging from abstract sculptures to hyper-realistic portraits and photography,” this year’s Small Scale features contributions from Diana Kersey, Hannah Dreiss, Kent Rush, Vikki Fields, Susan Budge, Steven Daluz and Nemo, to name but a few.
