San Antonio for entertaining clients?

Law firm from the east coast is hosting a conference - money no object - entertaining clients during conference - short walk or cab ride from Grand Hyatt Hotel? All suggestions are greatly appreciated.

    1. Biga on the Banks, Le Midi, Las Canarias, I'd go to any of these before another steak house,
      altho' I do think Bohanan's is the best steak house around. They do have akaushi beef on the
      menu, which they sell for $99, a la carte. It is terrific, but wow!

      1. Here is the legendary Bill Hunt's take on fine San Antonio dining.

        1. Boudro's is outstanding. I love the atmosphere and the outdoor dining. Morton's and Ruth Chris are quite close. I have always had good luck at both.

          Boudro's Texas Bistro on the Riverwalk @ 421 E. Commerce, San Antonio, TX 210 - 224 - 8484.

          1. Unfortunately, Le Reve is no longer. Mr. Weissman's Il Songo in the Pearl Brewery complex is
            getting rave reviews, but does not take reservations. That might be problematic for a dinner with
            "clients". In addition, it's quite a ways from the Grand Hyatt. I'll also note, that the chef, Scott Cohen who gained such accolades from Mr. Hunt (Las Canarias) is now at the Watermark Corp. The new chef, John Brand received praise from the October Texas Monthly magazine. Should be worth a try. In my earlier post, I neglected to mention "Insignia" the restaurant in the Fairmont Hotel. Jason Dady is the owner/chef there and I hear the food is superb. If it compares favorably to his other restaurants in the are, it should be grand. Hope you have a great meal, wherever you decide to dine!

              Actually, Bill mentioned that John Brand was the chef. It was in the middle of his detailed review and is easy to miss.

                Just had brunch at Insignia and it was great, they have a super fun "mimosa menu". They have a semi private room off to the side which might work for clients.
