Foodies and culinary news followers like me should head to San Antonio, which has opened more than 80 chef-driven restaurants.

In early 2023, the new Collections Building at The Alamo will unveil an extensive collection of Alamo and Texana artifacts from the personal collection of musician Phil Collins.

I think that alone is a great reason to visit, but for foodies and culinary news followers like me, San Antonio has also opened more than 80 chef-driven restaurants in the last two years, and it's about time I made my way there to try some of them.

This includes ArrostaBox Street All DayLandraceBrasserie Mon Chou Chou, and Best Quality Daughter. Additionally in the city's Southside, exciting openings include eateries such as Rosario's; as well as museums such as The Contemporary at Blue Star and Ruby City; live-play spaces like Blue Star; and more.

And while many know of the city's rich Hispanic heritage, San Antonio also has significant German history with former breweries being reborn as hotels and museums along the San Antonio River like the San Antonio Museum of Art — the former home of Lone Star Brewing — and the Hotel Emma, which was formerly the Pearl Brewery.
