About Cured

Cured – chef Steve McHugh’s first and highly anticipated gastropub 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.

Everything is incredibly salty. The "Duck & Cherry Sausage" tasted like they mixed 10 lbs of pepper, 5 lbs of salt, and 1 lb of capsaicin and somehow coagulated it into a sausage shape. No nuance of flavor. Purely pepper, salt, and heat. The bread, or tortilla, or whatever that comes on with the charcuterie tastes like the smell of body odor. And every dish was over-salted. Salt. It felt like the waitress was salesperson rather than a waitress. Like walking into a car dealership, but without the pressure. All of that said, the atmosphere was nice, the service was good, and it is an interesting deviation from the norm. Also, salt.

Took my colleagues to Cured for a birthday lunch- It was a first visit for all (2 of whom are new to SA) except me. They loved the ambiance, menu offerings, and service. We also discussed what a great location it is for date night with our spouses - I’m certain they will be back for additional dining experiences. Thanks for a great lunch and great memory w my new colleagues.

Cured is consistently wonderful. The food is interesting and beautifully prepared with deep impressive flavor. Service is perfection. The space itself is gorgeous. We will go back many many times, it never fails to impress out of town guests. Plus it's a perfect place for a date night just for my husband and myself.

 (Corpus Christi)·Dined on January 11, 2018

From the beginning, our time at Cured was a new experience every minute. Starting with our very knowledgeable server, Anna, and the informative explanations of the menu to our initial cocktail offerings, Cured met and exceeded our expectations. We decided on three-piece cures meats starter of cotechino, finocchiona, and lamb & porcini salama. The pork sausage was unexpectedly rich with nutmeg and our favorite. The finocchiona brought great fennel flavors and this was our first time having the lamb & porcini salami. All three were cured in-house (as are all of their offerings).

Our small bites were bison tartar & foie gras prickly pear terrine. The tartar was different than the beer tartars we have had in the past as this was better tasting with a deeper flavor. Maybe it was in bourbon in it. The terrine was two layers of foie gras sandwiching a layer of buttery rich sweet prickly pear fruit!

Our big bite (entree) grilled lamb loin. Again, superb presentation, perfect doneness, and great lamb flavor.

We will come back!

I brought my mother to Cured for a girls weekend (we are "old girls" (49 and 73). My mother enjoyed the charcuterie plate very much and the chicken and donuts was delish. The wait person helping us was delightful. The presentation of the food was very nice. Very enjoyable experience

Great service and excellent food! Normally we get the charcuterie assortment which is delicious and this time we ordered the mussels and fries. We were served a large serving of mussels with a Tasso ham broth and crispy fries - we would order this again. We also enjoyed the Masa fried oysters that were perfectly cooked and seasoned.

The location — the historic Pearl administration building was beautiful. The wood and metal accents of the tables, chairs and decor went very well with the setting. The chef’s table area, where we sat had a pleasant atmosphere. Fantastic charcuterie plate with coppa, finochiona, and pork rillettes. The pork cheek poutine was absolutely delicious. (The pickled cauliflower on top was a surprising twist that provided just the right touch of acidity and cruncy texture that balanced out the dish.) The pork chop was one of the best I have ever had — a delicious cut of meat grilled perfectly and thoughtfully served with minimal but delicious accompaniments that balanced the meat yet still kept it the highlight of the plate. Our waitress Fetaine provided a rare level of wonderful service, being very friendly, polite, and patient and providing thoughtful recommendations when we asked.

We were not impressed with the food. The ambiance also lacked character and warmth. The service was good. We were seated next to a man talking loudly on his cell phone. They immediately and cheerfully moved us to another location. The building is gorgeous on the outside but disappointing on the inside. We had 6 of the meat items. None were that tasty. The soup was okay but nothing special.

Inventive menu focusing on fresh, house-cured charcuterie. Some of the best charcuterie we've ever had. Creative menu and drinks. Food and service were excellent. Good ambiance. Charming setting on the old Pearl Brewery campus.
We enjoyed it very much and wish we lived closer so we could be regulars!

2nd time to eat at Cured. 1st time was phenomenal. This time was disappointed. It was not packed and server was not focused to start, got better as evening wore on, and it became obvious we were going to spend $. 4 people and $600 bill. Appetizers and small plates were spot on, entries were not. Waygu filets were dry. Sous vide pork chop was prepared perfectly but was not a first class chop.
Should have stayed with the small plates and apps. and just not ordered entries. B-team was in the kitchen. Don't go for the wines as they spend more energy on beer selection, which is weird for a cured meat establishment ( just because you are located in the Pearl doesn't mean you need to focus on beer). Dinner for 4 people will cost between $75 and $150 per person depending on drinks. Over all disappointed in bang for the buck.

All the food tasted excellent and was well presented but quite small servings for the price. Do not go hungry and expect to walk out full. We started with 3 small appetizers. One was the pork belly. This was 5 small strips of pork fat!! I had Lamb Loin which was very tasty but once again 5 - 2 bite pieces for $20 something. My wife had the Red or King fish, not sure, but she loved it.
