    In the lobby of the Emily Morgan Hotel, guests will find pure gold – the ORO Restaurant and Bar. Spanish for "gold," ORO provides diners in San Antonio with a superb culinary dining experience that centers upon Executive Chef Moses Cruz's regional Texas cuisine. ;Open daily for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and with high-speed wireless Internet service throughout the restaurant and bar, ORO features a daily Happy Hour from 5:00 to 7:00pm with drink specials available. The ORO margarita was recently selected as the "Best Margarita in all of San Antonio." The extensive martini menu has been rated as one of the top three in all of San Antonio.;;For San Antonio fine dining, ORO offers a spectacular new menu each season served in one of the most stunning dining rooms in all of San Antonio. The sophisticated space features dark wood floors, high-backed booths, chairs upholstered in smoked-salmon colored fabric, and subtle lighting of custom-made fabric cones and votive candles.
    Here's a promise: In writing about Oro, there will be no cheap references to "good as gold," "gold standard," "fool's gold," etc. Although it's tempting, very tempting. My first comment does have to do with gold as a color: The faded blue denim shirts on the waiters have to go - with the possible exception of the one on our waiter. (It matched his eyes, according to a dining companion who notices such things.) As a part of last year's redo of the Emily Morgan, Oro rose from the ashes of the utterly undistinguished Yellow Rose Café. Now garbed in golds and deep browns, illuminated by handsome fabric pendants, sconces, and votive candles, and sporting such flagrantly opulent touches as an alabaster bar glowing from lights placed beneath, the restaurant has an air of elegance rivaled by few in the city. The second-string waitstaff is garbed in black, tunic-style jackets. So what's with the denim? Think of an evening at Oro as theater, and you'll understand where I'm coming from. Thinking of the menu as Modern Italian, as it claims to be, may help define its direction some, but isn't really necessary to enjoyment of the meal. - Ron Bechtol
