need fine dining help from San Antonio hounds

Will be in SA next week and need a fine dining spot for Sun night. Wanted to make it to Le Reve but they're not open. Was told to check out Bigas on the Bank. Is that my best option on a Sunday?

    Where are you staying? How much do you want to spend? What type of food are you looking for? Do you want a "dress up" place or a casual restaurant. Do you have a car, or does it need to be in walking distance? Do you want a chain or must it be a local restaurant? Are you alergic to anything?

    A little help, here.

      Fine Dining. Neither distance or price is a concern. No allergies. No chains. Don't care if its dressy or not. Thanks.

        If you want to stay on the riverwalk, that's fine. I'd stick with either las canarias (in la mansion) or pesca (in the watermark).

        If you want steak, go for bohannans. it's on houston street, downtown.

        If you don't mind driving, I'd go with the lodge at castle hills. It's a little drive from downtown, but I think it's worth it.

        bohannan's is the most casual of the choices.

        biga's has a menu posted at the door. If you're stumbing around downtown, you can check it out. I've never been there, becasue it's a) pricey and b) downtown. I've heard mixed reviews.

          Biga's is an excellent choice, it is very good, wonderful service too.
