Ácenar is not Mi Tierra with a snazzier paint job. With the exception of some slick color photos of nibbled galletas, paletas, and dulces - and maybe the noise level - there's not much at all in the highly charged interior that suggests Tex-Mex, classic or contemporary. In fact, the clever use of a molcajete grid on the patio takes us back to a much earlier era.;;The same might be said for the menu: It's divided into San Antonio Tex-Mex Favorites and Ácenar Specialties, and it's not clear at first glance whether the SA favorites are alleged to be updated, or if all the tweaking took place in the specialties section. An appetizer such as the house-smoked salmon nachos with discrete black beans and dill crema looks much like the classic cosa, but the taste is altogether otra. And it works, despite the rarity of both dill and smoked salmon in any Mexican kitchen, traditional or Tex. - Ron Bechtol
Achiote's pan-Latino menu promises more than it delivers, but the roast pork with yellow rice is succulent and the homey rice pudding satisfying. Terrace seating on the River Walk is pleasant. -- Ron Bechtol (08/08)
Alamo City's link in the Austin-based Alamo Drafthouse chain offers the expected beer and wine selection, varied menu, and the first-run movies. But Westlakes also hosts special screenings such as Rocky Horror Picture Show, and free weekly shows such as Weird Wednesday, and Anime Monday featuring movies mined from the depths of film-nerd obscurity, and rents out theaters for local premiers.
Aldaco's Stone Oak outpost remains true to its downtown roots with fresh, flavorful Mex and signature treats, including the avocado margarita and pastel tres leches. -- Ron Bechtol (02/09)
Anaqua provides a pleasant enough dining environment , but we thought the view of the manicured gardens and historic structures trumped the interior design. Grilled ribeye with caramelized brown-sugar crust and three-chile compound butter hits the target.
