Tucked into a quiet corner overlooking the River Walk, Restaurant Gwendolyn is one of San Antonio’s dining treasures. Here, ingredients are sourced within a 150-mile radius of the restaurant and prepared using old-school techniques like fire—even the bread is based on a centuries-old recipe. The kitchen also makes an effort to use every last perishable component, working its nose-to-tail philosophy into everything from charcuterie plates to hearty entrées. A well-curated wine list and decadent desserts round out the New American cuisine at this dinner-only spot. When visiting, be sure to end your meal with a cup of the famous coffee, which the restaurant brews tableside in a rare European syphon.
