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.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "There was nothing wrong with my visit, but there was nothing special either. For the money, I'd go elsewhere. I was underwhelmed. Server was great though!"
    Dined on 7/28/2014
  • "Excellent food and service. Delicious fresh hand crafted dishes"
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "We tried Cured on the recommendation of a foodie friend. The occasion was an anniversary so we had plenty of time and committed to trying a lot of things, slowly, to really appreciate the breadth of the menu. Our experience was OUTSTANDING. We tried a 3 piece charcuterie, quail legs, fried oysters, some kind of corn muffin with bacon excellence, and the hot goat sausage. EVERY DISH was delicious. Another note is that we had a reservation for dinner but showed up early (because we were already at Pearl, browsing the shops). They (happily) seated us an hour ahead of our reservation and made sure our pre-dinner experience (kitchen opens for dinner at 5) was just as outstanding as the rest. We had a great experience and will be back!"

  • "Great food. Great service. Drinks varied from the usual bar drinks."

  • "Been to Cured a few times now. It's tucked into the nicest little spot at Pearl, and provided it's not raining, the courtyard out front is such a great place to enjoy the San Antonio weather while you wait (which is never long if you have a reservation.) The food is excellent-- unique menu items that change ever so slightly each time I'm there. The Poutine is the star of the show. My only complaint, and it's a big one, is the service is lacking. No mistakes on orders or anything, but they have zero personality. Every time I ask for suggestions I get blank stares or "oh, everything's good." It's sort of like they took the old concept of the snooty French waiter and stuffed it into a millenial wearing plaid and hip eyewear. Not a fan."
    Dined on 7/25/2014
  • "The menu is like nothing you've seen in San Antonio. Different meats and cocktails than anywhere else. Excellent food and knowledgable polite service. An amazing beer menu that compliments the meats. The use of local Pearl brewery market vegetables was a nice touch."
    Dined on 7/24/2014
  • "We met up on a weeknight. Our table was waiting for us and the waitstaff were very friendly. However, it was difficult to hear each other and almost impossible to hear the music. We tried cocktails from the menu, all which were strong and with unusual ingredients (e.g. green chartreusse, Burlesque Bitters). We then had the 6-item charcuterie, Wagyu Beef Tartare, and a lamb ravioli. These were excellent, although the lamb ravioli was a little on the small side for a "large" entree, two big ravioli. Lastly, we had a new fruit dessert, which was all right but would have functioned better as a palate-cleanser; it was extremely light and didn't have much flavor to it. We also had the chocolate and berry granita, which was delicious."

  • "Once we were moved away from a table set for 20 people, things settled into wonderful. Excellent service, nice Rose with the charcuterie. Best beet salad and heirloom tomatoes."
    Dined on 7/23/2014
  • "The food was flavorful, the ambiance was nice, the service was excellent. Our biggest qualm was that we left hungry. The portions were less than filling. Maybe we ordered three small items (although two were supposed to be entree size). Basically, we wouldn't want to go back to spend a ton of money on dinner if we end the night hungry. Also (and we can't speak to this because we didn't order the items), stick with what they are playing up .... It is a restaurant that excels in meat and charcuterie. That is probably the way to go."
    Dined on 7/17/2014
  • "We went to cured 2 nights ago and are still talking about how delicious it was. It is good to come with an open mind and leave the diet at home. The food and the service are outstanding. This was my third time there and it was great. Also, the Cured cocktail is delish."
    Dined on 7/16/2014
  • "Overall it was ok. We had a 5:00 reservation and about ten minutes in the fire alarm started going off due to an AC repair. That lasted for 15-20 minutes and we had to relocate outside until the fire department cleared the alarm. It wasn't the end of the world and the manager apologized but you would think they would have offered an appetizer or dessert....something. Otherwise the service was really great and our server made spot-on suggestions. A few things on the bar menu weren't available. The charcuterie was magnificent! We all wished we had just ordered that, skipped the entree and had dessert. We all agreed we would go back, and give it a second chance."

  • "Date night for me and DH. This was an all around perfect evening. The food is absolutely amazing. We had great service. By far, one of the best restaurants in SA."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "We selected Cured to celebrate my father's 80th birthday. It was a real treat for all. The beer, wine, and cocktail selection had something for everyone. Wes, our waiter was great at explaining the menu. His service manner was exceptional. The food, beginning with the charcuterie, was outstanding and well priced for the quality and variety. I will be going back to try more items or for cocktails and appetizers. *Note* You do need to make a reservation well in advance in order to select the time you want. I highly recommend Cured."

  • "We went to Cured for our Anniversary on a Saturday night. We sat at the Chef's Table and had a wonderful experience. The service was amazing and the food was delicious. I highly recommend the Poutine and the quail!"
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "We tried Cured for the first time recently and it was an unexpected surprise as to how good it was. Rachel was our server and was awesome! She was extremely knowledgeable and helpful explaining different things about the food and just providing an overall pleasant dining experience. The food unique and delicious. Portion size and pricing was spot. The interior decor was also very unique and enjoyable. We will return for sure!"
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "Excellent restaurant with a very diverse menu. Nice atmosphere. I would recommend if you want to try something that is different."
    Dined on 7/4/2014
  • "Wonderful food and staff! This was my second visit because the first one was great. I had to return with more friends to share the experience."
    Dined on 7/3/2014
  • "You won't regret asking the waiter what their favorite dishes are. Since the menu can change they have great insight on the new things to try."
    Dined on 7/2/2014
  • "I love this place! Robert the GM is amazing, Wacey our waiter was outstanding and the kitchen hit a home run! Great wines and beers too. I'll be back for sure!"
    Dined on 7/2/2014
  • "For carnivores or people who enjoy lots of small plates this is the place. It seems like there were regular size entrees but we stayed with drinks, salads and various smaller plates."
    Dined on 7/1/2014
  • "This is a remarkable culinary adventure! The pork cheeks, the charcuterie then the heirloom tomato 4 course dinner was a special treat! Highly recommend Cured, and the great waiter Mark made our experiences (2 times in one week)!"
    Dined on 6/30/2014
  • "Our favorites are the fried oysters, poutine and chicken fried chicken livers. Fun cocktails and knowledgable servers elevate our experience each time we've been to Cured."
    Dined on 6/30/2014
  • "Can't wait to go back. Great food and drinks. Wait staff was great. Loved all the cured meats, braseola and pork rilletes were best. Pork cheeks poutine was remarkable."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "Beautiful restaurant.....friendly .....felt our waitress could have been more helpful with the unusual menu. She was not confident in her suggestions. We felt a little lost."
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "Excellent service, great menu with creative choices. We loved the chicken livers, the oysters, the pork cheek poutine, and the large charqueterie platter! Excellent."
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "We had a really great experience at cured. I was surprised by the menu variety and quality. Its more than a meat house! The waiter was very helpful with recommendations from the menu. Food portions size was perfect allowing one to manage four courses without loosening the belt."
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "Reservation was pointless, seated in the back of the restaurant...food order took forever manager was not compassionate they lost our order in the kitchen, service was an issue with no compromise, never going back."
    Dined on 6/25/2014
  • "Excellent food, nice wine list, friendly wait staff are the hallmark of this place. Great charcuterie. A perfect combination was the vealwurst with the picked cucumbers that provided the perfect blend of meatiness and the refreshing crunch of cucumber or the unctuous pork rillettes which leaves you wanting for more. Perfectly cooked fish (though my dining companion thought the portion size could have been larger), excellent tartar (though this was too finely ground and was a bit gluey because of that) and a perfect gumbo, especially made fabulous by corn muffins with pork butter. Black rice pudding provided the perfect end with a touch of chewy nuttiness balanced well with peach and raspberries which refreshed your palate."

  • "We had dinner at the restaurant and enjoyed been there the food good"
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "We ordered eight dishes between the four of us. Three were great, three were good, two were terrible. The service was outstanding. The place became loud with the restaurant about half full. Dessert menu didn't include anything that we had to order, so we didn't."
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "Very interesting restaurant experience. My wife and I had our monthly date night and wanted to try something different. Cured definitely met the bill. Very interesting dishes on the menu. We kind of worked our way thru the menu by sharing appetizers, salads and a couple of entrees. We are very adventurous when it comes to food. So we look for items we have never had before and that was easy to do with the menu at Cured. Don't know how many times we looked at each other and stated "That's Good". Of course they offer several safe dishes for those less adventurous, but if you want a neat experience and try something a little different, make a reservation and get over there. Place fills up real fast."

  • "My husband and I enjoyed an early dinner here, with our two boys, greatly. The food was superb and the service excellent. Atmosphere was sedate and the drinks exceptional. We have rarely enjoyed ourselves as much as we had and look forward to returning soon."
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "This was my first time at Cured! My boyfriend I went there to celebrate our anniversary. We were so impressed with our waiter, the fast service, the decor and over restaurant ambiance! We will definitely go there again and recommend it to others."
    Dined on 6/13/2014
  • "What a fabulous place! Great location. Great atmosphere. First rate service. Nice wine list. Outstanding charcuterie menu and nice food menu. Everything that came to our table was first rate (plus some). We would loved to have had a cheese plate with the charcuterie, but kinda crazy -- they don't have cheese. Without cheese in a place like this, I regretfully had to give it 4 Stars for "Food" and "Overall," which is unfortunate 'cause this place is 5 Stars across the board. If you're not a cheese lover, you'll love this place. If you are a cheese lover, I'd hold out for a menu change, as I am certain they'll straighten out this most obvious shortcoming on the menu."

  • "Love the really cool architectual feel and ambience. The charcuterie plate was amazing as was the Basil Smasher!"
    Dined on 6/11/2014
  • "Great location and very easy parking. The atmosphere is vibrant and the menu is meant to be shared, which is nice. Our server also cleared tables- plan ahead to order more cocktails or for additional selections from the menu. The food was wonderful- well prepared and presented- and the choices were superlative. The wine list is pleasantly inexpensive."
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "The food and drinks were fantastic. Went for a date night with my wife - we ordered the corn muffins and beet salad for appetizers and had the roasted leg of lamb and ravioli for our entrees. Everything was fresh (some items bought at the Pearl Farmers Market that morning), quite tasty, with good portion sizes. The beer menu was extensive with a lot of local craft brews to choose from. Looking forward to our next visit!"
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "Love, love, love this place. My taste buds were dancing. I had the Quail which was perfectly cook but the mole grits were to die for! My husband had the short rib ravioli and it was a work of art. The meat melted in you mouth and the rainbow chard with asparagus foam completed the entire plate. Don't forget to buy the kitchen staff a 6 pack of pearl."

  • "Simply amazing. You feel the love the chef has for what he is creating. We are lucky to have this special place in San Antonio"
