Located next to the historic Hugman Bridge, Zuni Grill delights ocular orbs with scenic River Walk views while gratifying stomachs with authentic interpretations of Southwestern cuisine. Claim one of the patio’s cypress-shaded, mosaic-topped tables and start your lunch with blue-corn nachos, whose crisp tortilla tricornes are topped off with smoked chicken, black beans, pico de gallo, monterey jack, guacamole, and sour cream ($8.95). Devour an applewood-smoked salmon pizza ($13.95), side-kicked with a savory slather of goat cheese, cilantro, onions, and capers, while watching boats glide idly along the river with miscreant buccaneers in leisurely pursuit.
If a night shift at the anvil factory renders dinner the new breakfast, snag an eventide seat inside the restaurant’s brightly hued dining room. Level up your belly powers with spinach salad, a leafy array festooned with onion crisps and goat cheese and splashed with white-balsamic and dried-cherry vinaigrette ($8.95). While sips of Illy coffee ($2.50) trickle down the food tube, order smoked-chicken quesadillas, served with black beans, rice, pico de gallo, guacamole, and sour cream ($13.95), to keep your mouth occupied with something other than cursing at ducks.
Not valid for alcohol.
