Dining Out | Nosh

I have been meaning to get to Silo and its small plates/bar little sister Nosh for oh, well, forever.  Cue the heroic Zeus and Demeter who, very kindly, took little Cherub to see Yo Gabba Gabba Live.   We are, after all, a rock and roll kind of family. 

It’s lovely to have lots time.   We ordered started early with the cocktail menu and then ordered several times at a leisurely pace from the shared plates section of the menu. 

Nosh turned out to be everything I kind of hoped for: creative, local flavors with a bit of comfort thrown in.  It makes you realize that San Antonio is not all bar-b-que and enchiladas. (Not that there’s anything wrong with that.  I will be having and posting about both in the next few days, to be sure.) Nosh is a perfect spot to hit if you’re a foodie from out-of-town.  It’s not far from Alamo Heights and the McNay, it’s got a decent happy hour and a creative cocktail menu.  I love Nosh’s concept of a flight of cocktails.  Especially if several are looking alluring.  Which they managed to do pretty easily.  The service is thoughtful and eager without being intrusive.

We will certainly be back again next time we’re in town, and if we lived here, it’d be a regular favorite.
