Where to go to suppress your appetite for prom

by Emily Moore | Staff Writer

Impress your date with an elegant dinner destination.

Brasserie Pavil

1818 N. Loop 1604 W., San Antonio TX 78248

A contemporary French kitchen serving up classics from coq au vin to goat cheese ravioli. The outdoor patio offers a nice breeze on those nights when weather permits dining al fresco, and the indoor decor is just as inviting. A definite escape for your taste buds, and an always-casual atmosphere.

Sushi Zushi

18720 Stone Oak Pkwy., Suite 154, San Antonio TX 78258

For those of you prom-goers that aren’t afraid of consuming raw fish, Sushi Zushi is the right spot. The place boasts at least fifty different styles of sushi, and there is always something that sounds appetizing amid the selection. Now, if you grimace at the thought, there is plenty on the other side of the menu. From crispy gyoza to several traditional Chinese dishes, the restaurant offers far more than just sushi rolls.

Stone Werks

1201 N. Loop 1604 W. Ste. 101, San Antonio TX 78258

Tons more than just your traditional pizza and burger place. Stone Werks offers up salads, steaks & chops, fish & seafood, and enough delicious desserts to make you spend another half hour making up your mind. (Just don’t take too long. You do have a dance to get to.)

BJ’s Restaurant and Brewhouse

22406 U.S. 281 N; San Antonio, TX 78258

In this classic yet comfortable setting, the simultaneously modern and rustic fare of BJ’s restaurant and brewhouse sits at center stage. Dim lighting musters up a romantic feel, and homemade root beer to almost make you feel like the grown-up you pretend to be. Consider its proximity to the Marriot, and BJ’s becomes the perfect spot for hungry teens. The menu consists of delectable entrees, big, crisp salads, sandwiches, and pizza. No matter what makes your dancing shoes move, BJ’s is sure to please.

Oh, and one more thing: stay away from the Riverwalk. I know, I know; I’m ruining your plans, but trust me. It’s too far away, too expensive, and way too crowded on a weekend. Stick around town, and spend the extra time making sure you look just right.
