Notable opening and closing

FYI locals - La Fonda (opened in 1958) closed and Hot Joy on S. Alamo opens today. Love their crab fat chicken wings!

  1. Just to clarify, it's La Fonda in Alamo Heights, not the good one on Main that closed.

    1. Have been quite impressed with Hot Joy on both our visits so far. I'd venture to say 80% of the dishes are "new", and they assured me they'd move into "off-menu" selections (that were among our favorites from the pop-up days) in the near future.
      Haven't sampled cocktail menu yet, but, coming from Jeret Pena, I can't imagine being disappointed in that department. Riesling selection is awesome!!
