    I have been a patron of Bruce Auden's Biga since long before it moved to the Banks. Last night I brought my partner in for his first time, and the drive from New Braunfels was beyond worthwhile. The Prix Fix menu had everything we chose. The mixed greens salad was a bounty of very fresh non-boring lettuce with many surprises (brie, walnuts, apple...) and a light vinaigrette that was not applied too heavily. The man's favorite salad is Ceasar, so I pointed out that the Ceasar dressing on romaine lettuce was made with red pepper. Very happy. I enjoyed the lamb chop rack medium rare, but the accompanying glazed carrots and cheesy grits also made the plate 5 star. My partner had the beef Denver and wondered why he had never had beef like that before before, even though it is glorified potroast. Melt in your mouth and not a bit dry. I was jealous that I cannot braise beef that way. The orange polenta cake was very tasty, though a little dry. But the creamy sause and teeny scoop of basil sorbet made it perfect. The sampler was not amazing, just good according to my date. They change much of the menu daily, depending on what's at the market, but even though I cannot come in every day, we will make that drive again soon.

Discover Downtown

It comes as no surprise that Frito pie is a staple in the birthplace of Fritos. No one knows who first buried the chips in steaming chili, cheese and chopped onion, but the mystery chef is practically sainted around here. Tex-Mex cuisine is distinctly different from authentic Mexican, but both are found in abundance in Downtown San Antonio. You can thank indigenous peoples for the tortillas and tamales that appear alongside enchiladas, spicy rice and refried beans on your combo plate at the many Mexican restaurants in the area. Tacos and tequila have always paired well, but craft cocktail bars have elevated both. Who knew that a soft-shell taco with seared ahi tuna would be a hit in the Alamo City?
