A word from Cured
Cured – chef Steve McHugh’s first and highly anticipated gatropub opened December 2013 in the century-old building that once belonged to the president’s headquarters of the famed Pearl Brewing Company. This seasoned chef spent ten years in New Orleans as chef de cuisine for chef John Besh followed by two years at Lüke in San Antonio. Yet, his most sterling achievement has been beating cancer. After such a life-changing triumph, McHugh set out to open Cured, giving it a name that speaks to his feat as well as the artisanal cured meats hanging in view. It was with this purity of ingredients and hands-on methodology that enhanced his own healing process. This from-scratch, seasonal focus finds its to menu items like Sweet Potato Agnolotti with Bourbon Brown Sugar & Sage and Slow Cooked Heritage Hog with Smoked Andouille & Okra. McHugh has found a way to implement “gastronomic giving” by donating $1 from every charcuterie board order to a different charity each quarter.

    I loved Cure!!! Great atmosphere, delicious food. Our server gave us full attention. We ordered the fried chicken livers and oysters for starters...excellent! Then we followed up by mussels, sausage with duck egg, beet salads, seasonal vegetables. This is now one of my favorite places to dine in San Antonio.

    It was very loud (we were sat close to the bar) but otherwise, we were very impressed. From the curing locker in the lobby, to the smoked duck ham on the charcuterie plate, to the wide variety of plates offered, there is something for everyone, and the adventurous palate will be in heaven. I highly recommend the root beer old fashioned and the waygu beef tartare!

    Between my wife and I we had four different cocktails, all well made and very delicious. We took our waiters advice on the charcuterie and weren't disappointed—you can't go wrong with any of it. Even the farmers market vegetable entree was great. Definitely recommend.

    Skeptical at first, when I found out that is where my friends wanted to go. I am not a fan of sausage and thinking with a name like “Cured” there would be a lot of sausage. There is a lot, but also a lot of other great food. I was blown away, cannot wait to go back. It was great across the board, food, service, and ambiance! Our waitress made great suggestions and was very tolerant of our many questions. Their cappuccino is wonderful, put the lemon twist in it…

    while the appetizers - the beet salad and the fried oysters were excellent -- the main entrees - disappointed significantly. The lamb was overcooked and the seasoning was off, and the fish was super salty -- ugh! they missed it on this trip for sure.

    Interesting place. A little bit difficult to figure out what is being served. We had a great waiter who picked out items that he recommended. Most menu items are served family style. Emphasis is on meats that are cured, not really cooked. All in all a great experience.

    Simple, food, excellent, the attention to detail and the management and wait staff....maybe above and beyond the call of duty. I have never had anyone that eager to please other than my dog! We were a hard group to please but they did whatever, within some twisted reason to make us have a great time. I will definitely go back, great food, great service and the manager, Wacey Jamison was very polite.

    Exciting that it wasn't the same old thing! The Nineteen 75 specialty drink was divine; the cured meats were better than expected; the waiter was most knowledgable about the menu; from the beautiful, old wooden floors to the high, decorative ceilings, the restaurant was a delight. We hope to bring friends next time to share the experience.

I thought my fried oysters were just ok and wished I had tried something more meaty. Our cocktails were really interesting and unique. Overall, really good dining experience. We will be back.

It's rare to find a place that cures its own meet, even in our native NYC. My husband loves their mear options. We both appreciate their well chosen mixes of local vegetables.

    I made reservations for an anniversary dinner with my boyfriend. The restaurant is beautiful, and the glass case containing all the meats is a brilliant visual centerpiece. Everything we ordered was delicious, from the charcuterie to the poutine, from the cocktails to the dessert. The waitstaff even recommended a lovely bar for us to visit after we left. We're very happy with our visit to Cured, and we look forward to dining there again.
