San Antonio is undergoing a transformation, specifically in the core of the city. Millennials want to be here and businesses are signing leases left and right. We want to hear what many influential people in the city think about the transformation of our iconic city – entertainment, retail, living and culinary wise. We sat down with Chef John Russ, Executive Chef at Lüke, to take a peek inside his mind and see what he thinks about the San Antonio food scene!

If you're a fan of John Besh Restaurants — and let's face it, who isn't? — then you won't want to miss out on Lüke restaurant's Visiting Chef Dinner Series while you're in San Antonio.

On these special nights, guests can experience some of the magnificent cuisine New Orleans has to offer, without ever having to leave the "Alamo City."

These successful prix fixe dinners are happening every one to two months, and each one showcases a different stellar chef and their unique cuisine.

Lüke, John Besh’s first restaurant outside of Louisiana, serves French-German fare with a New Orleans flair seven days a week, but once a month, Lüke switches up the menu with the visiting chef series. This August, Chef Phil Mariano from Domenica in New Orleans paid San Antonio a well-deserved (we’re a culinary city!) visit and took our tastebuds on a roller coaster ride. Six courses accompanied with drinks for $100? We’re looking forward to the visiting chef series every month now!

He’s teaming up with Lüke’s executive chef, John Russ, to serve a five-course menu that intertwines August’s traditional French fare with the flavors and ingredients highlighted at Lüke. Items include grilled peach and goat cheese salad, potato-crusted oysters and roast duckling with blackened foie gras.
