Southerleigh Oyster Bar 136 E. Grayson St., (210) 455-5701, southerleigh.com
While not a new restaurant by any means (Southerleigh first opened in 2014), the addition of the oyster bar this September makes this Pearl restaurant that much more enticing. Suddenly, you can enjoy the afternoon propped up on one of their comfy stools, reaching down to pet the Pearl pups that cruise on by. Designed by Clayton & Little, the 100-foot bar was a long time coming, and will make for fun afternoons as next spring comes around. Definitely try the house punch that grows boozier and brighter as the recipe is tinkered with by the staff, or explore the line up of Southerleigh brews made on site. Bubbles also work for an afternoon sip. Whatever you’re drinking, make sure to get a snack or two. There’s pressure fried wings and fried biscuits for 75 cents and $1, respectively. Or spring for platters of fresh seafood from oysters to caviar as a mid-market snack. It’s all our favorite things in one: people watching, tasty snacks and fabulous drinks. What are you waiting for?
