Visit Alamo Heights for the Height of Culinary Adventure in San Antonio

Alamo Heights is a beautiful historic district of San Antonio and has a lot to offer when it comes to great restaurants.

While Paesanos can sometimes be overlooked in lieu of the new restaurants popping up all over town, there's a reason why this Italian favorite will soon be celebrating its 50th anniversary. For one, the cuisine is absolutely on point, but perhaps more importantly, the service is exceptional. With so many years under their belt, they know how to make guests happy.

For some upscale Mexican cuisine, Paloma Blanca, is simply a lovely place to enjoy lunch, dinner or some tapas with friends. They have a gorgeous outdoor patio, perfect for enjoying a couple of margaritas and one of their specialty dishes. They even offer gluten-free items and easily cater to any requests. 

For a fun lunch date, you don't have to go much farther to get to Bird Bakery. Enjoy a delicious soup and sammy, but make sure to save room for dessert. They have cupcakes calling your name right now!
