Two restaurants that feature Asian cuisine and a new brewpub are among the new culinary options available to local diners near downtown San Antonio.

Colette at the Phipps

Located next to the rooftop Paramour bar along the River Walk Museum Reach,
Colette fuses French, Latin American and Asian cuisines. Menu items include Asian Pozole Ramen, and Salmon Curd and Scallion Ginger Sauce.

Inspired by namesake 19th century French writer Sidonie-Gabrielle Colette, the rooftop restaurant is designed to provide an upscale, relaxing atmosphere with plush seating, warm lighting and a varied menu that also includes desserts made from scratch, craft cocktails and a lengthy wine selection and spirits.

  • Opened in June

Nineteen Hyaku

Led by Chef de Cuisine Ruben Pantaleon, Nineteen Hyaku offers a variety of sushi and handrolls as well as proteins and vegetables prepared on a traditional Japanese Robatayaki grill. Each diner receives what restaurant representatives called an “omakase experience,” where the chef meets the patron face to face and customizes their entire meal on the spot.

Dishes include Duck Soba and Japanese Wagyu Steak. The bar program includes cocktails inspired by Japanese flavors such as the Nineteen Swizzle, with Dripping Springs Distilling Vodka, matcha, calpico and lime.

Launched by local company Carpenter Carpenter Hospitality, Nineteen Hyaku contains 5,000 square feet on the ground floor of The Jefferson Building and includes a bar, dining room, and mezzanine level with 25-foot windows spanning the length of the restaurant.
