If history has taught humankind anything, it's that meals are usually best when they can be brought fresh to the table, instead of plated inside FedEx boxes and delivered by servers wearing cement block shoes. Dine on fare that retains its temperature with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of dinner cuisine at Silo Elevated Cuisine & Bar in Alamo Heights. Customers who redeem their Groupons Sunday through Thursday will receive a $15 gift card to Nosh, Silo's sister restaurant, located next door.
A stylish interior welcomes guests at Silo, where myriad dinner menu items are infused with fresh ingredients. Edible appetizer arrangements include chicken fried oysters paired with sautéed spinach and applewood smoked bacon, tart apples, and whole grain mustard hollandaise ($11) and a caesar salad with roast garlic croutons ($8). A bevy of fresh seafood, meats, and other options round out main courses, with choices such as vegetarian risotto ($17) and seared sea scallops with garlic spinach and saffron beurre blanc ($29).
