Does anyone know the list of restaurants in San Antonio having Thanksgiving brunch/dinner this year?
So I'm curious do you think people would appreciate a SA food aggregator?
It will be sad to see the Lodge go, my family's been going there for special occasions and just because for years.
I also forgot to add yelp.com to my list of food sources. It's not food specific, but it's one of the first results you get from googling a restaurant. Just curious does anyone here also post on yelp and/or urbanspoon?
As much as I wish SA had it's own board I'm asking this question within the context of the texas board. Even if we had our own board I realize that we'd still be fielding questions like "where's the best tex-mex", "Where's the best places to eat on the riverwalk", etc.
There are great SA finds that I've discovered through Chowhound, but I find myself going to other sources for information on the SA culinary scene. I was curious whether fellow SA hounds use some of these sites as well.
Urban Spoon (http://www.urbanspoon.com/c/39/San-Antonio-restaurants.html): great for general info, websites, menus, and photos, reviews are hit or miss. Wish you could filter out every single fast food chain featured. Most of the food blogs I follow I found there.
Open Table (http://www.opentable.com/start.aspx?m=19&mn=85): great for making reservations, unfortunately a lot of great SA spots are not on OT
SavorSA (http://www.savorsa.com/): great reviews, some info on openings and closings, great coverage of restaurant week
SA current (http://sacurrent.com/dining): great reviews, but you have to filter through coverage of the club scene to find them
Express News: does anyone even read the paper anymore?
CulinariaSA (http://culinariasa.org/wine-festival/home/): great information on events, but that's pretty much it.
City-data (http://www.city-data.com/forum/san-antonio/281065-new-restaurant-openings-closings-san-antonio.html): If you need to know where the latest Popeyes has opened, it's great. There was a 2011 restaurant week thread this year so it's not a total loss.
Food blogs: You have to find the good ones yourself and there's a lot of junk out there.
Twitter: great for last minute info on specials and it's the best place for info on Weissman's places
Facebook: Nothing you can't find on twitter other than photos.
Are there any other sources I'm missing here?
Just so you know Pavil has been closed for a while, it's quite unfortunate. I've heard there's something else moving into Reggiano's old building, but I have no idea what as of yet.
