Bistro Vatel endures as San Antonio's favorite French culinary destination, and has been hailed as an oasis of intimate, unpretentious dining replete with a four-star menu that rivals the best menus of France's elegant, countryside haunts. Chef Damien Watel, who has built a small empire of authentic European eateries around the metro area, continues to actively direct the menu - a tempting and delicious document that changes daily with the city's only prix-fixe menu. A carefully selected wine list compliments the manageable and diverse menu from which hail signature Vatel dishes like quail stuffed with boudin, bouillabaise and what some say is the best foie gras this side of the Atlantic. Critics swoon and locals swear by Bistro Vatel's unparalleled food, service, and atmosphere. The bistro is open Tuesday through Friday for lunch and for dinner Tuesday through Sunday.
