Nice dinner in Converse area?

I'm trying to buy a gift certificate as a wedding gift for friends who recently moved to the San Antonio area. They live in Converse but I'm sure they would be willing to drive for a nice evening. Any ideas? Ì'm looking for a place that would feel like a treat and a nice evening out. Thanks in advance!

  1. Well; There is papa Dante's an italian restaurant that has been in Converse for ages as well as the usual chain places.
    There is Silo ,Biga on the Banks, and several other more upscale places in San Antonio. Since I don't know their tastes in food if it was me I would get them a VISA or MASTERCARD gift card from $25.00 to $100.00 .This way,they could go to any restaurant of their choosing.Some places have gift cards;others like Biga ,Silo,Paesano in Lincoln Heights and other places don't have gift cards.

    1. Thank you for the advice. I ended up getting them an e-certificiate to Biga on the Banks and it turns out they've been there and love it. Guess distance wasn't a problem!
