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.

Cured Ratings and Reviews
Perfect experience! We were traveling from Philly and spent a few days in San Antonio. I was disappointed by the touristy restaurants by the Riverwalk. I did some homework and read some great things about the dining at the Pearl. This is a truly special restaurant. The training is evident with the staff. The bartender was wonderful, he even stopped by our outside table to check on us later. The manager was a true professional. Food is outstanding and different! Give it a shot, sooner rather than later!
The service was picture-perfect: friendly without being intrusive, helpful without being pushy. Every single bite was the perfect version of itself. We could have eaten every single item on the menu if our stomachs would have allowed. Complimentary champagne for our anniversary was a nice touch. Lamb pastrami is to die for. Would drive down from Austin again and again to eat here.
Love this place! We had waited 2 1//2 hours on La Gloria, as a friend was in town and he wanted good Mexican food, but where getting frustrated. Got in immediately and had, in my opinion, much better food. The cocktail they brought me turned out to be undeinkable (The Cured) as it wasn't as good as I thought it would be but I ordered it so offered to pay for it and just get something else but they took care of it anyway for me which was very nice of them.
Started with the bierwurst, the pork rillettes, and the Keystone cheese. zomg LOVED the bierwurst and the rillettes, wish we would have tried more of the charcuterie, as these were fantastic but we were worried about getting too full ~ continued with the striped bass (hubs wanted seafood) and I had the hanger steak with mushrooms... Also a complete zomg. The fries were absolutely perfect. IMHO the fish wasn't quite right, to me it tasted a little old, but I tried to tell hubs what to have... LOL - by then I was beyond full and sadly there was no room for dessert. We will be back!
Bob, the General Manager was a great Ambassador for the restaurant and gave us an impromptu tour and history of the building and Pearl Brewery site. He explained their sourcing and curing process which was great. Great service and food, and beautiful restaurant
I Always enjoy Friday Night Happy Hour. 50 cent quail legs and half priced drinks. This past Friday they cancelled Happy Hour for San Antonio Fiesta Celebration. What a let down! No quail legs and no half priced drinks. Otherwise, it was great as usual. If I would have known there was no Happy Hour, I wouldn't have driven 45 minutes to get there.
I had a fantastic time at a 5:30 reservation at Cured on a Monday with four other diners in my group. We tried the cocktail menu (which has great mixed drinks and restoratives), beet salads, quail legs, the charcuterie tray, the bone marrow dish, the Wagyu steak, a green gnocchi special, and the flat iron steak - ending with an assortment of desserts at the end. One of the diners needed gluten-free options and the server was more than prompt and willing to assist with letting us know what would be safe to order for that diner. It was an excellent dining experience with great service and great food. I would come again if in San Antonio again!
The food was absolutely scrumptious! We first had the CHARCUTERIE for six. Tried stuff I wouldn't normally eat. It opened my pallet to new things. My entrée was the Pan Seared Bass. Holy moly, it was awesome! My husband had the Rabbit. I had a taste, it was a little gamey to me but he enjoyed it. The service was awesome! I apologize but I forgot our waiter's name, but he was on his A game. He had quite a few tables, but made sure everyone was well taken care of. Highly recommend this place!
Three of us dining for brunch. Waitstaff recommended a six piece charcuterie plate, which was excellent and the perfect size before we had our main courses.
Fabulous grits and cat head biscuits paired with praline bacon for me. Only sad that I was unable to finish all my grits.
We had been here before and we're very pleased thus our repeat visit, a first for us. As before the food did not disappoint other than the porchetta having a char from a too hot skillet. Enjoyed a great wine from a great list. It is fun to check out what is hanging in the cured meat case as you walk in the front door!! This is a great place for fine dining as well as for foodies!
When our party arrived our table was not quite ready. The manager served us sparkling wine as we waited. We started with the Chef's choice of 9 for charcuterie. Fabulous! We then picked several dishes to share. The Waygu beef was amazing as well as the bone marrow with escargot. Additionally we had mussels, chicken livers and poutine. Great flavors matched by great service!
Delightful ambiance with creative and beautifully curated food! This was my first visit to "Cured" and wanted to try something fun and different for brunch, will absolutely be returning! Gorgeous craft cocktails, a unique and trendy decor complete with a meat locker that sets the stage for delicious charcuterie, and the service was very pleasant and attentive! A new fav place in the fabulous historic Pearl district of San Antonio!
Great food. I'd definitely recommend the charcuterie. In fact, if I went back, I'd simply get the 9 charcuterie options over an entree. Our waiter, Michael, was also great. The lone miss was that they forget it was my girlfriend's birthday after I made it very clear when I made the reservation and again when we walked in.
The food here is amazingly creative, and absolutely delicious! Duck ham; enough said. Their beer and wine selection complements the varied menu items perfectly. Not only does the staff take the time to describe the current menu offering, but they do it in a friendly and courteous manner. They were attentive and efficient, but still willing to engage guests in conversation. I would highly recommend enjoying a meal here; it is definitely the cure for the common experience.
