The concept of the restaurant is everything old school, using what they had and doing as they did before the break of the industrial revolution: approximately 1850. This was the last time that food was honest.

There are no blenders, mixers, choppers, ice cream machines, deepfryers, burr sticks, nor anything else with a motor--nothing with a plug. Food machines with motors made possible an imbalance of diet that had never occurred before: we could suddenly fry enough food to make ourselves sick, we could preserve food longer than its last dangling vitamin. Refusing food-enabling machines is another way to keep the food honest, and in reasonable balance. There is not even a freezer.No perishable ingredient may travel further than a good, strong horse.The menu will move absolutely in lockstep with the seasons, as okra and eggplant taper off and leafy greens move in, we must change ourselves tosuit the product--not the other way around. What is outside is inside.

One of the best in San Antonio. The rabbit and chickpea pupusa was incredible.

This restaurant is wonderful! Friends and I have been there twice for the 5 course menu prior to the theatre - there is just enough time if you work at it. The 7 course menu requires too much time. We had three of us this trip, which was great because we were able to try everything on the menu. We also added the wine pairings! The appetizer and soup were set and very tasty; we had a choice of salads - although neither truly was a salad but both were delicious; we had all three of the main courses, pork chop, quail, and fish - the quail was delicious, the pork chop perfectly cooked, and the fish had tremendous flavor. We followed the up with three deserts and coffee. You HAVE to get the coffee...what a fantastic meal! Need to go back for the 7 course!

Excellent service, excellent bread pudding desert. GIANT cheese and charcuterie- had we known it was that big, we wouldn’t have ordered dinner. Several of the charcuterie items were fantastic (sausage , beef pate, goat cheese, honey,) some were not so much (pickled egg, peach. Dinner was unremarkable in flavor
Though presented beautifully. Biscuits and gravy were good though nothing special. Very expensive for what you get. I probably won’t go back.
