San Antonio, TX 78215
Cured – chef Steve McHugh’s first and highly anticipated gastropub opened December 2013 in the century-old building that once belonged to the president’s headquarters of the famed Pearl Brewing Company. This seasoned chef spent ten years in New Orleans as chef de cuisine for chef John Besh followed by two years at Lüke in San Antonio. Yet, his most sterling achievement has been beating cancer. After such a life-changing triumph, McHugh set out to open Cured, giving it a name that speaks to his feat as well as the artisanal cured meats hanging in view. It was with this purity of ingredients and hands-on methodology that enhanced his own healing process. This from-scratch, seasonal focus finds its to menu items like Sweet Potato Agnolotti with Bourbon Brown Sugar & Sage and Slow Cooked Heritage Hog with Smoked Andouille & Okra. McHugh has found a way to implement “gastronomic giving” by donating $1 from every charcuterie board order to a different charity each quarter.

The whole place seems so alive. The staff seem to genuinely enjoy what they do and believe in what they are doing there. The food is incredible, from the charcuterie to the poutine. One of the most memorable dining experiences we've had. Highly, highly recommend this one-of-a-kind place!!

Came here for New Years Eve 2017. Was very happy that they were serving their regular menu and not some overpriced 3 course meal that you must have if you eat here. Me and my boyfriend sat at the chefs counter and I highly recommend it if you are looking for a different experience. Definitely a little noisy and hot at the chefs counter but in our opinion, totally worth it. It was so fun to see the kitchen staff working on the meals and to see what was being ordered the most which helped us in our dinner decisions. The man who was giving the orders behind the counter was very friendly and helpful in answering some of our questions. We really had a great time with him and he even gave us a little free dessert at the end for "putting up with him yelling all night" but really it was our pleasure. The restaurant has a very cool vibe, great for date night. There was a good wine list and prices were incredibly reasonable. Our waiter was very attentive and kind, we enjoyed talking to him a bit too. I love the story behind the owner opening it and naming it after beating cancer, we got a chance to speak with the owner for a few minutes and gush to him about how much we loved the place which was really special. I ended up having the pork cheek poutine and while it was HUGE (make sure you come hungry) it was absolutely delicious as well. Don't substitute anything or ask for anything to be taken out - the flavors all go so well together. My boyfriend got the lamb and thought that was great as well. I don't think you can really go wrong here though.

We had a wonderful "last holiday of family being together" brunch on Saturday, New Year's Eve. The ambiance, food and drinks were very, very good. Servers and others working at the restaurant were most polite and friendly! Our table waiter was fine, and efficient, but I'm not sure I ever saw him smile. If I HAD to think of a negative, that would be it - but, he worked hard to please us, and I found myself wondering what made him so serious and sad? So..... wishing all good things for our waiter and CANNOT WAIT for more sweet flavored maple ( or was it praline?) bacon!!!

We loved the food! The fried quail legs for 50 cents each were the perfect start to our evening. We loved the charcuterie 9 selections. My wife especially loved the duck ham, pork rillette , pork butter and the chicken liver mousse. The top of the charts for me was the Fried Chicken livers. We also enjoyed some great cocktails during happy hour. This was our first visit to Cured. It will definitely not be my last. This is my new favorite San Antonio restaurant.

Some dishes were horrible. Especially the carrot salad. I couldn't finish it. Kale salad was good. Everything is in very small amounts. Steak was smaller than a match box. Unbelievably expensive too. We felt like we we're cheated.

Excellent concept as there aren't many charcuterie-style restaurants in Texas. The night we visited was a Friday; and the establishment was extremely noisy from the bar patrons, so we sat outside. Judging from the regular patrons, reservations are recommended to avoid a long wait.

This place was all we wished for when we started looking for a special restaurant for date night. I surprised hubby, by keeping this place a secret and he was more that excited once we got there, walked in, and saw "the meat locker"! Recommendations were perfect made by our waiter. Food was more than expected and price were reasonable for what you were getting. We will be returning w/ friends in the near future.

What a beautiful restaurant. Every detail of the restaurant is so well thought out and beautiful. Can honestly say that most everything we ordered was a new experience. Had the most tender, juicy pork chop and was so impressed I shared too much of it! Mixed drinks were inventive and served beautifully. Waitress was charming and quick to offer recommendations when we didn't know something. That's always a risk since recommendations are usually the most $$ but we threw caution to the wind this first time @ Cured. There were many things on the menu we hadn't had before. For less adventurous eaters, it might be hard to find something to order with confidence. That said, we did order some new-to-us things that were delicious and some that we wouldn't need to have again. All part of the experience! We went for the burger which they stop serving at 6pm so we'll have to go back earlier next time.

Charcuterie is the draw for Cured for me. You MUST order a chacuterie board. They use more of the animal and different cuts then the norm. I had the lamb heart bolognese with gnocchi and if you are not sure about trying offal this is a must try. It was wonderful. I had the blood sausage for the first time ever. Not terrible but not something I would order personally. Don't be scared to try it. The drinks were crazy good we had two of each the "Cured" and "Lazy Bee". Great service, drinks, and charcuterie. Cool old building. Not your same old resturant. Try it, you might like it.

I love the decor of this restaurant and it's location at Pearl. Our waiter was great and we liked our meat platter that we ordered. The portion sizes are far too small though. We chatted it up with the couple next to us and they ordered many plates of food. I would say that one of the plates is not enough food to fill up even one person. They should be more up front about how small the plates are and that they do not include anything else (the fish for example is served JUST the fish, no sides).
