A featured guest on San Antonio Living with a story that has reached as far as the Wall Street Journal, Bernard McGraw brings his New Orleans–born expertise to a daily-changing menu of creole lunch cuisine at Bernard’s Creole Kitchen’s location on the Baptist University of the Américas campus. Each lunch includes a choice of an entree and two sides, and though creole- and Cajun-crazed customers can sink their teeth into red beans and rice or deep-fried catfish daily, the restaurant’s other entree and side options change from day to day, much like President Grover Cleveland’s retroactive approval ratings. Diners can sample such flavor pairings as B’s Drunken chicken with mashed potatoes and green beans on Tuesday, creole barbecue pork ribs with creole corn and a garden salad on Wednesdays, or classic crawfish étouffée with Zydeco crab salad and Big Momma’s potato salad on Friday.

Diners also have their choice of beverages, including such options as tea, lemonade, or swamp water, which both quenches alligator-size thirsts and provides a welcome reminder of native environs for homesick crawdads. Bernard also invites in local jazz musicians from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Thursdays, providing a New Orleans–soaked sonic backdrop for his patrons’ dining pleasure.

Bernard’s Creole Kitchen

In 2006, New Orleans native Bernard McGraw stood in an airport with a decision to make—what city to call home. Then-Mayor Phil Hardberger professed on a nearby television that Hurricane Katrina victims were welcome in San Antonio. McGraw had lost virtually everything in the storm, but not his passion for Cajun cooking. So he boarded the plane in search of a new kitchen and a new path. McGraw’s story, originally run by the Southside Reporter, has a happy ending.

Bernard now runs his own restaurant out of Stinson Municipal Airport. His New Orleans–style Cajun and creole menu features homestyle sides of collard greens and mac ‘n’ cheese, spicy gumbo, golden fried catfish, and stuffed po’ boys. Diners can also enjoy a live jazz band (call ahead for schedule) and indulge in such housemade desserts as apple pie, sweet-potato pie, and pictures of pi cut from discarded textbooks.


Reviews

Bernard's food is certainly worth searching for. It is pure comfort. The gumbo is fantastic, with depth and layers of flavor
