It's 10 pm on a Saturday night. In San Antonio, this usually means closing time for restaurants, a couple of movie showings before closing, or you can embark on a frustrating search for parking downtown. Restaurants like NAO offering late night menus bring hope of a world that exists outside of downtown after 10. NAO recently launched a holiday menu with Chef Jeff Wiley, who brings his signature style and flavors to the new Late Night Wiley Experience. Chef Wiley is part of the growing talented culinary community in San Antonio, and he has found great success in recent restaurant stints, including FEAST and Beat St. Coffee.
'Late Night' is traditionally made for the chefs and restaurant workers who are getting out of work late, but it's inevitable that other people in San Antonio will be hungry.
"In cities like Chicago and New York, eating well and eating late is easy, everything is open," Chef Wiley said. " The Late Night menu offers something for everyone; it's a happy medium between nice, playful and upscale bar food."
'Late Night' is traditionally made for the chefs and restaurant workers who are getting out of work late, but it's inevitable that dishes like Wiley's chile guero with pork belly will attract the rest of the city too.
Late Night at NAO Hours: 10 p.m.-2 a.m. Friday and Saturdays.
