Fine Dining to No Frills Dining in Alamo Heights

One of the most charming neighborhoods in San Antonio is located in the middle of the city and one of the oldest, most respected communities. With beautiful homes, lush tree-lines streets and high-end shops, it's no surprise this area is also home to some of San Antonio's best restaurants. 

You can't go wrong with Cappy's! Cappy's has earned a reputation as an extraordinary fine dining restaurant with premium ingredients, back before people cared to ask where their food came from. There is almost nothing better than sitting on the patio at Cappy's for brunch on Sunday with a plate of truffled eggs and lobster. 

If upscale is what you're looking for, Silo is another fantastic option for lunch or dinner. Dinner can be a la carte or they also offer a prix fixe menu including choices like Texas Gulf Shrimp & Grits and Chipotle Pork Tenderloin with green chile mac-n-cheese. Is your mouth watering yet? 

For some low-key options, look to Grayze, which is just down Broadway, for affordable, farm-to-table goodness or Fratello's Deli for some to-die-for fresh-made pizzas, Italian sandwiches and salads. Yum!
