Next Visiting Chef Dinner at Lüke San Antonio Welcomes This Year’s James Beard Award winner for
“Best Chef – South” Alon Shaya on Thursday, December 10th
We’re pleased to host Alon Shaya at Lüke San Antonio as the chef will be wrapping up a record year. Already the chef/partner at John Besh’s Italian outpost Domenica and casual sister eatery PIZZA Domenica, Alon opened his namesake modern Israeli restaurant Shaya in early February to rave reviews.
Over the past few months, Esquire named Shaya the Best Restaurant in America; Bon Appetit awarded Shaya as one of the 50 Best New Restaurants in the country; and finally, Southern Living spotlighted Alon as one of the 50 People Changing the South. We’re thrilled to now bring Alon to San Antonio as our final Visiting Chef for 2015.
For next week’s dining event, Alon has appropriately prepared a 5 course Hanukkah spread reminiscent of what he’ll be serving at Shaya during the holiday season. Menu below –
