Yep, 2017 has been the Year of Dady. After a turn relatively successful turn on the Food Network’s Iron Chef Gauntlet this April, and an appearance in Throwdown with Bobby Flay (Dady was robbed!), Dady and co. returned to downtown San Antonio proper with Range.

Found inside the former home of Lüke San Antonio, Range takes on the modern chophouse with a Dady-flair. With a makeover and rebranding by Hilmy, a local design and production firm, Range delivers a new fine-dining spot for those power lunch meetings, an indulgent afternoon bite or a celebratory dinner.

That’s not to say Range doesn’t give you plenty of reasons to visit on days when you’re not getting engaged, or celebrating a promotion. There’s the interactive and bubbly Wagyu shabu shabu to dip, tableside bar carts with martinis to sip and proteins to explore. Range takes its roots in Texas’ abundant ranch and farmlands and delivers dishes not often seen on restaurant menus like the classic Parisa, a Castroville favorite that adds cheddar to a beef tartare preparation.

And then there are the steaks. Do yourself a flavorful favor and add a topper. Choose between a fried local hen egg for your tenderloin, sea urchin butter for your sirloin coulotte or the seared foie gras with pickled blueberry on your ribeye.

You don’t need to save room for dessert: checks are dropped off with a freshly spun cotton candy cloud.
