Stone Oak's fresh flowers, from all 18 corners of the world, are primed, primmed, and collected into beautiful bouquets for all occasions by a friendly, prompt staff. To congratulate a recent grad on moving back in with his parents, reach for a Joyful and Thrilling bouquet, rife with odiferous alstroemeria, carnations, daisies, and solidaster in a clear glass bowl and bound with a yellow ribbon ($44.95). For recreational birthdayers, the How Sweet It Is, a $39.95 mix of hot pink, red, and coral flowers such as roses, Matsumoto asters, and carnations, reminds them of the blooming years to come. The Pretty Please bouquet is a bright springtime forest of spray roses, daisy and button spray chrysanthemums, and Monte Cassino asters ($37.95). There are also silk and dried floral arrangements for poignant existentialist statements. To add extra emotional firepower, add a Mylar balloon ($4.99), stuffed animal ($9.99), box of chocolates ($19.99), or a pink howitzer shell.
Even the best chefs have to get their start somewhere, and that somewhere is often a burger joint. This is certainly true of five-time James Beard nominee Bruce Auden. The profile in the San Antonio Express-News traces his meteoric rise from flipping burgers at a cabana to apprenticing under Guy Petit to earning Food & Wine magazine's Best New Chef title in 1988. Since then, Auden has continued to hone his culinary innovation, first at his award-winning restaurant Biga and now at Auden's Kitchen.
Auden’s Kitchen retains a local focus and serves creatively redesigned comfort food. There's buttermilk fried chicken with lemon-pepper marinade, and burgers with dijon aioli and applewood bacon. Pizzas come with house-pulled mozzarella and the hot kiss of a wood-burning oven, which also prepares salmon and whole-roasted trout. In addition to these classics, the seasonal menu saves space for a number of more lavish entrees, such as duck confit blanketed with cherry-zinfandel barbecue sauce. Diners have more than 75 wines to choose from, as well as bar offerings such as martinis and imported beer.
The dining room’s laid-back decor invites guests to relax, rather than worry about whether they’re combing their hair with the right salad fork. Wine bottles and copper pots cluster on shelves lining the dining-room walls, and diners can see right into the kitchen over a stainless-steel countertop shaded by a bevy of frying pans.
