San Poke
20770 US 281 N, (210) 998-2556, sanpoketx.com
San Poke is SO. GOOD. There’s not a whole lot else that needs to be said, really, as long as you’re a sushirrito or poke lover. If you’re not into raw fish, don’t worry. They’ve got cooked eel and pulled pork (also, how puro is that?) as alternatives to raw fish. If you don’t like poke in general, you can still go for the yummy bubble tea. In short, we’re telling you to try this new spot.

The Brooklynite
516 Brooklyn Ave, (210) 444-0707, thebrooklynitesa.com
Yes, The Brooklynite is closing, but it’s not the end of the world. It will be opening again later this spring at a different, more intimate location close to the Pearl. Not only will the building and interior be more beautiful than before, but the menu will be reimagined. While the previous menu was certainly delicious, the upcoming menu will be even more inspired.

Yeah, yeah – we know that Bar America didn’t just open. It’s been open since, like, your grandparents were born. The thing we’re excited about this month was the opening of their new rooftop patio and mural, which you can now visit and enjoy your comfort food and drinks overlooking the Alamo City.

River City Seafood
115 N Loop 1604 E, Ste 1108, (210) 233-6790, rivercityseafoodgrill.com
Another seafood-themed closure? What do San Antonians have against fish? Or are we just moving towards trendier oceanic fare, like sushi and poke? Regardless of the reason, River City Seafood also closed its doors this February.
