REVIEW: Shelter Lounge in Ballard

REVIEW: Shelter Lounge in Ballard
Every neighborhood needs a good bar, and in Ballard, Shelter Lounge (website under development), is trying to carve out that space. With a lodge-like look and feel – complete with lots of wood, glass, and an outdoor fire pit, this former gas station offers upscale bar food and both indoor and outdoor dining.  In the middle of the building is a large bar that divides the indoor and covered outdoor space, allowing bartenders to work both sides of the bar.

With a location on the first floor of LEED certified Hyatt at Olive 8, I had high expectation for what Urbane had to deliver, both it terms of decor, food, and attitude.  In some respects, they delivered in spades.  In others, however, I think they may be living a little bit too much on their own hype.

Restaurant Review: Pericos

Among the sea of hundreds of Mexican restaurants in San Antonio, Pericos is one of the best. It’s a great spot for couples, families or even large groups. Big portions of delicious Mexican cuisine at a reasonable price will have you coming back for more. Located on the Northwest side of San Antonio, Pericos’ atmosphere is delightful, everything from the parrot theme throughout the restaurant to the Mariachis and other live musicians on the weekends. But the best thing about Pericos is...
