A stylish, full-service coastal Italian restaurant designed to take diners on a journey through the romantic Amalfi Coast, this restaurant creates Italian reverie with colorfully transportive gathering spaces, one of the city’s largest alfresco dining loggias, and a modern Italian menu crafted by Chef Robbie Nowlin. The menu features small and large plates, including fresh seafood, housemade pasta, plus savory vegetables and meats. A full-service bar offers craft cocktails, spritzers, and Italian wines.
Arrosta is a fast-casual cafe, or tavola, bringing the flavors of Italian street markets to Pearl in San Antonio. The restaurant delivers a bohemian cafe experience, featuring elevated counter service and glass cases filled with baked goods and casual takeaway meals. Patrons can linger over work projects in cozy banquettes or retreat to the lush patio garden for relaxing breaks. Chef Christopher Carlson of Maverick Texas Brasserie delivers a menu of rotisserie meats sold by the pound in bowls, salads, and sandwiches, as well as salumi e formaggi, panini and fritti misto. An all-day bar transitions from coffee drinks in the morning to Italian wines and beers at night.
Kineapple at Pearl Bottling Department
Kineapple, a concept by Local Coffee Founders Robby and Neesha Grubbs, opens at Pearl’s Bottling Department. The new concept will offer a variety of fresh smoothies, healthy snacks, salads, coffee, and more. The menu is designed to make healthy eating accessible and delicious. Guests can expect smoothies that can be made with different modifiers such as plant-based protein, whey isolate, creatine, turmeric, collagen, blue majik, cold brew shot and more. Food options include Crunchy Kale Salad, Free Range Chicken Salad Sandwich, Kineapple Farm Bowl, Golden Overnight Oats, In-house Protein Bar and more. In addition to smoothies and snacks, Kineapple also will offer coffee from a rotating list of specialty coffee roasters. The name pays homage to Robby and Neesha’s youngest son, who struggled to say “pineapple” as a child and instead pronounced the name of the fruit with a K instead of a P.
