California comfort food spot Black Bear Diner plans Texas expansion, including San Antonio location

https://www.sacurrent.com/sanantonio...t?oid=27986287

It’s not just California residents that are flocking to Texas. A new comfort food spot based in the Sunshine State is also headed our way.

Redding, California-based Black Bear Diner will open its first Alamo City location this summer at 2707 SE Military Dr., serving up its “home-style comfort food classics” for breakfast, lunch and dinner, news site MySA reports.



The San Antonio location, which formerly housed short-lived Market Barbecue, is one of six corporate-owned locations planned for the Lone State State. Other future Texas locations include McAllen, Mesquite, Fort Worth and the Austin area, MySA reports.

The diner is known for its stick-to-your-ribs fare such as chicken fried steak benedict, homemade meatloaf and slow-cooked pot roast.

platter ?

Southside ice house project gets go-ahead from historic review board

https://sanantonioreport.org/southsi...-review-board/

The owners of a 1-acre site in the Mission Historic District can move ahead with plans to develop a neighborhood gathering spot after a review panel recently approved modifications to the property.

The project, at 207 Roosevelt Ave., will transform a site now zoned for industrial use near the trails of the Mission Reach into an open-air entertainment center. Design plans show one building labeled “ice house.”

“It’s a fabulous location,” said architect Jerry Lammers, principal with Alamo Architects, who represented owner Joe Bakke before the Historic and Design Review Commission hearing.

“There’s really nothing like this down in that area of town,” he said. “The goal for the project is really for it to be a neighborhood project.”

Plans show an open lawn area with picnic tables surrounded by existing buildings on the site that will be renovated, with two additional commercial buildings to be constructed.

I remember a while back, an In-N-Out was supposed to go there. If that's the case, that intersection is going to be hell during lunch hours especially with Chick-Fil-A hogging up that entire road, lol.

Last I heard it was going to be Pluckers? I guess we'll just have to bide our time.

Pluckers is across the highway, next to Cracker Barrel, where Logan's used to be.

Lulu’s famously huge cinnamon rolls are coming back

https://www.expressnews.com/food/res...s-16829894.php

San Antonio’s most famous gut-busting confection is set to make a triumphant return this month: Lulu’s big-as-your-head cinnamon rolls.

When Lulu’s Bakery & Cafe closed early in the pandemic, the restaurant’s iconic 3 ½-pound cinnamon roll became one of the city’s most famous culinary casualties. While Lulu’s isn’t coming back, its ginormous sweet treat will be revived at both Green Vegetarian Cuisine locations beginning on Valentine’s Day, Feb. 14.

Green Vegetarian Cuisine owner Mike Behrend is the son of Lulu’s founder Lulu Singleton and said in a news release he’ll be baking the massive rolls using his mother’s original recipe, which dates back to 1992.
