We're approaching a week's stay in San Antonio and yesterday we decided to move Miranda (our van) and run a few errands around town. It was, after all, a misty/rainy day when being outdoors enjoying the mild January temps wasn't as much a thing.
After Melanie finished a work-related task, it was lunch time and I quickly Googled "best lunch San Antonio." I randomly chose La Fonda on Main from the list provided. I woke up thinking about what a great lunch we had there.
First things in time of pandemic. The tables at La Fonda are all physically distanced as one might imagine and as we approached our table, the hostess told us the table was still wet because it had been disinfected just before we arrived.
From their website: Cappy's and La Fonda on Main will now offer limited indoor seating in addition to outdoor patio dining and curbside to-go. We are working closely with medical and science professionals to ensure the safety of our staff and guests. Enhanced safety protocols are detailed on our website.
Melanie enjoyed her Chile Relleno and I enjoyed a special served Friday-Sunday, Barbacoa Enchiladas. Highly recommended and we can't wait to dine there again.
We traveled from Ocean Springs, Mississippi to New Orleans where we spent an afternoon having lunch and walking around the French Quarter. I made a reservation for us to have dinner at Bayona. They are currently open from Thursday-Sunday evenings.
Since COVID cases have been on the rise, we are mostly very leery of eating in restaurants, especially those that are somewhat crowded. Fine dining presents a problem in that a meal may last a few hours. We were fortunate to have the dining room at Bayona to ourselves for the first hour or so of dinner there. Afterwards, three more people came in a were seated on the far end of the restaurant from where we were seated. Staff is very cognizant of precautions and masked up during service.
Melanie had a lamb dish and I had Red Snapper, both nicely prepared. We like what has become our annual dining experience at Bayona and recommend it to you as well.
Melanie and Steven
