Signature at La Cantera Resort & Spa
Jet to the south of France this weekend at Chef Andrew Weissman’s stunning Signature at La Cantera Resort & Spa. This soul-pleasing perch at the highest point in San Antonio is where you’ll taste French and American fare so fabulous, you’ll wonder if you’re still in South Texas! Weissman, a former journalist, writes his most delicious work ever in Signature’s menu with Parisian palate pleasers like the escargot to Texan tempters like the petite burger with Kobe beef. Don’t forget the wine — there’s more than 250 varieties of wine in Signature’s magnificent cellar! Watch this weekend to “geaux gourmet” in your own kitchen — Weissman shares a ‘signature’ scallops and braised fennel recipe [above]!
Your next trip to the Gulf Coast gets even more appetizing at Tookie’s Seafood in Seabrook! Hang out in Tookie’s treehouse where fresh fish comes straight from the Gulf and crave-worthy crawfish is brought to you by the bucket! Dock for their succulent shrimp and creamy Texas state grits [above] and be dazzled by chargrilled oysters fired on a massive grill — all dreamed up by Tookie’s motorcycle-lovin’ chef CJ Johnston. Get the recipe this weekend for his towering Shrimp Campechana that reels coast lovers in every time!
Freiheit’s Country Store
Even the most adventurous traveler misses home once in awhile — let Freiheit Country Store in New Braunfels bring you back! Lone Star comfort food and live music make Freiheit’s a must on your next road trip, where Texans have been traveling to since 1889! This weekend, singer Cody Canada tells you why he frequents Freiheit’s, but we think it’s because of the Thursday special [above], with mountains of tender turkey and family secret scratch-made dressing! Get a taste of pure Texas this weekend!
