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.

Love this restaurant! Their charcuterie board is the best! We always order the 9 item board because it's just so difficult to select from so many great options. The only restaurant I can compare this to is Cochon in New Orleans. Just excellent!

Novel and contemporary concept - well suited to the location. I would recommend it for "tapas" and drinks with friends. Worth the experience as a visitor to the renovated Pearl complex. I'm glad I tried it. However, after one visit I would not return for a prime dining experience. The niche is elegant drinks and snacks for millennials. I am outside the target group.

The food was outstanding. The service was ok but our waiter was somewhat condescending and didn't act as though he had much time for us. I could understand itmore if they were really busy but they were not. Aside from that, it was excellent.

The Cured specialized in meats. I had the charcuterie which was excellent. My wife had a filet which was very good. Our guests also enjoyed their meals. The service was knowledgeable and friendly, but was a little slow when the restaurant became very busy. We will return the next time we are in San Antonio.

Such a fun atmosphere and excellent food! I had the petite filet and the cut of meat was great. It was paired with fennel, onion rings and a savory sauce, all of which went very nicely together. We finished with the Smore-like dessert, which was also delicious. Would highly recommend Cured!

I always love coming to cured. It's one of my favorite spots in San antonio. I had a scavenger hunt planned for our anniversary and the staff was so awesome about helping me out with having it start there. Food is always amazing and our server was more than remarkable. Highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a great date night, brunch or just great food in general.

Extremely disappointed given all the hype. The charcuterie board was a huge disappointment. One can choose how many items and then select the items. Some of the choices had an extra charge associated with them. We chose a couple of the extra charge meats and were rewarded with 2 razor thin slices of each. We were later told it was supposed to be 1 ounce of meat but it wasn't even close. The manager gave the excuse that it was a new person preparing the charcuterie. Service was extremely slow. Our waitress was friendly and knowledgeable but was clearly assigned too many tables. After our main course we waiting around 10 minutes before she came and asked if we were interested in dessert. It took about 5 minutes before we got the menus. We started timing and it was 11 minutes before she came back to ask us if we chose something. We declined and it was 7 minutes before she brought our bill. The food was tasty but that is not enough to make us return.

The service at Cured was outstanding. I went with a group of 10 people but actually 14 showed up and they accommodated us without missing a beat. It was a tough group to keep up with and they handled it superbly. Our waiter had excellent suggestions. Cured meats were outstanding. Large plates were also excellent. Would have maybe preferred sides other than fries, but when we asked we got veggies no problem. One steak was overdone, but the mussels were excellent and chocolate dessert sooo good.

We were visitors to San Antonio and staying on the River front. When I explained our restaurant preferences to the hotel concierge, he recommended the Pearl Brewery District. When I looked at reviews for Cured, I was intrigued and then several more people said to "go - it's totally worth it."
We weren't disappointed. The food was creative and well -prepared. Our server was very knowledgeable and kept the pace slow so we could enjoy food and conversation without feeling rushed. If we visit again, Cured will be one of our return places to eat.

Situated in the administration building of an old brewery operation in San Antonio's Pearl District, Cured is an unusual restaurant that is a fun place to go. Not to be missed is the selection of "cured" meats and accompaniments that make for unique appetizers. Attentive wait staff and attentive managers provide excellent service.

The food was good but the portion sizes were tiny. I ordered the vegetarian option and while it was really good, I was still hungry and the plate was $20. My husband ordered a $40 plate and also didn’t get enough to eat. It was disappointing. Way overpriced. We won’t be returning.

This place was just OK. The charcuterie spread was tasty, but the redfish entree was dry and tasteless, the steak was undercooked, and the poutine was very watery. The cocktails were interesting, but we only finished 1 of the 5 different ones we ordered. Even during happy hour, I would consider this place a mediocre value.

This restaurant understands marketing. They put a lot of energy into the concept. And it seems that a lot of oeople were buying it when I was there.
But I would never go back. The centerpiece of what they're selling is their in-house cured meats, which they sell as cold cuts - very expensive cold cuts. And while the server is quite good at describing them in tempting ways, in the final analysis you've got cold cuts that, though more exclusive in their preparation than what you can buy in any upscale grocery store, are are no better - trust me on that.
I sampled a number of their cured meats. They were all good. None were superlative. Perhaps the problem is that is as good as it gets. Or perhaps the problem was that the serving sizes for each meat were too tiny to properly savor each.
I also tried the roasted bone marrow - something I have always liked since my mother used to give it to me as a treat when she was cooking in the kitchen. However, in this case it was merely ok. They have their own idea about preparation that doesnot align with my taste. Had it been as good as I had hoped I would not have begrudged the $20 for a couple tablespoons. The sauce that came with it was good.
On a positive note the vinegar pie desert was quite good.
The best part of the evening was the walk back to the hotel on the river-walk.
Summary: Cured has an attractive marketing pitch. They are much better at marketing than in delivering a dining experience in line with the size of the check.

We went for brunch and enjoyed it. The mountain mary was good. The Miller high life michelada was darling in its tiny bottle. The chicken and doughnuts was not at all what I expected but such a hearty serving that I couldn't finish it (but really wanted to). My friend had the French toast and practically licked the plate. We were there on the early side (10:30 am) so it was pretty quiet and service was very attentive. The sunshine was so bright through the uncovered windows that I ended up putting on a wide brimmed hat during the meal. Some window shades would have improved the meal, but overall it was fantastic.

Food was good but very small portions, surprisingly so. Also, we were rushed by our server and ended up having coffee and dessert elsewhere because of it. I think it's overrated and that there are better places to eat in the area, especially for the price.
