In summer, in San Antonio, you may be longing to dine inside with the air conditioning on full blast, but there's nothing quite as enjoyable as sitting on a nice patio with friends or family and some fantastic food.
At the epicenter of the culinary scene in San Antonio, the Pearl Brewery has no shortage of places to enjoy an outdoor meal, but Supper (located inside Hotel Emma) offers a perfect view of the riverwalk and serves food so fresh and yummy you can imagine it was picked in your own backyard.
Other Pearl favorites include Botika, for those who appreciate a fun / funky environment with a vibrantly-decorated patio, not to mention the unexpected flavor combinations at this Peruvian-Asian fusion restaurant.
For something a little more low-key that the whole family can enjoy, check out Dignowity Meats, not far from downtown's eastside. Not only can you kick back and relax on the picnic tables at this solely outdoor establishment with a few craft brews and some of the most phenomenal barbecue in town, but you can play games, meet some locals, and rejoice in just how good it is to be alive. Yeah, it's one of those kinds of places.
