Southerleigh Brewing Co. to Open New Location at Brooks
Second restaurant location for Southerleigh Brewing is set to open in the Fall of 2018 on Southside of San Antonio at Brooks.
Southerleigh Brewing Co. is excited to announce a second location of its popular restaurant, which will be located at Brooks on the Southeast side of San Antonio, Texas. The popular eatery and brewery’s second location will feature a new casual family-style menu, locally sourced, focusing on a special recipe fried chicken, gulf seafood and an extensive oyster bar, served alongside the beloved San Antonio brews they are known for, as well as a large selection of wines. The second Southerleigh will be located off of Sidney Brooks and Kennedy Hill Drive, and is slated to open in fall 2018.
Southerleigh’s Brooks location sits at the heart of The Greenline, a 43-acre urban linear park, on approximately 8,043 square feet. The restaurant will feature a large deck and outdoor space so patrons can enjoy the Brooks atmosphere and beautiful pond views.
“We’re excited to expand Southerleigh into a new neighborhood and introduce our culinary style to a new audience. The Southside of San Antonio has been rapidly expanding and we are thrilled to be joining this growing community at Brooks,” said Jeff Balfour, chef and owner of Southerleigh.
Southerleigh is a unique restaurant, specializing in food that combines traditional Southern favorites with the rich flavors of the Texas Gulf Coast. Southerleigh’s Brooks location will be a new concept with a similar approach, focusing on family-style Southern food and fresh oysters, plus the unique Southerleigh beers, select local guest beers, and an assortment of wines.
“We’re excited to be bringing one of San Antonio’s most popular new restaurants to Brooks,” said Brooks President & CEO Leo Gomez. “Southerleigh is perfectly positioned to serve as the center of activity at The Greenline – our beautiful new 43-acre linear park. This great addition continues to highlight Brooks as a rapidly growing mixed-use community accommodating marquee employers, just ten minutes from downtown.”
Gomez Vazquez International (GVI) Architects, an internationally renowned architecture and master-planning firm, led the design for Southerleigh’s Brooks location. Urbanika Group is the real estate company behind the project.
Chef Balfour’s Southerleigh will be among the first San Antonio-based restaurants to be added alongside The Greenline, which will connect to the San Antonio River Mission Reach. Local Chef Johnny Hernandez also recently announced La Gloria and El Machito will be opening at Brooks in fall 2018.
Official opening dates to be announced at a later date.
