Happy Thursday, ladies! Today I am taking you with me for my kind of birthday brunch in San Antonio.
Knowing I was out of town for my birthday, my new daughter-in-law and her mother honored me with a birthday brunch before leaving.
Way before entering my seventies, I have been old school with my tastes…loving vintage, French Country, antiques…and where I prefer to eat.
There are fabulous modern restaurants in San Antonio, but my kind of birthday brunch would not be at one of those.
They selected the perfect location for me….so come along and join us for my kind of birthday brunch in San Antonio.
MY KIND OF BIRTHDAY BRUNCH IN SAN ANTONIO: THE LOCATION
Restaurant Claudine is perfect for my kind of birthday brunch.
Located near the popular Historic Pearl, this lovely restaurant has renovated an historic old home for it’s location.
Making it perfect for a ladies gathering!
The decor is charming and warm.
I know wallpaper is having a moment with its return to popularity, and this eatery made me want to go home and wallpaper something.
The selections were so pretty.
MY KIND OF BIRTHDAY BRUNCH IN SAN ANTONIO: THE CUISINE
A birthday brunch in San Antonio can go many different ways, but this French/Southern fusion cuisine is delectable. They had me at Grandma’s Cornbread!
In the picture, you are looking at my DIL’s quiche.
I highly recommend it.
And the staff surprised me with this rich, fabulous banana pudding in a tea cup!
It was so good and easily split between three of us. I have not had banana pudding in years…and this one was incredible.
Such an amazing way to kick off birthday week.
On Saturdays & Sundays between 2-5, the restaurant pulls out the white tablecloths and china teacups and serves a special afternoon tea.
The menu includes several specialities, such as assorted macarons, biscuits with brie & strawberry jam, and various tea sandwiches (among other selections.)
And there are seven different specialty teas to select from. I definitely want my granddaughters to experience a beautifully done afternoon tea.
And I really want to come back for dinner…the menu looks so good. One more….when the weather cools off, Mr. B needs to go with me for the gumbo!
Can you tell that one birthday brunch has made a fan out of me.
MY KIND OF BIRTHDAY BRUNCH IN SAN ANTONIO: MEMORIES
One birthday brunch also made memories with new family and it was very special.
I am so blessed to have these women in my life and family now. Thank you to them both for a memorable day.
I am wearing the Banana Republic Cruz Linen Maxi Dress that I have showed you before.
It is a great dress and all of the colors offered are lovely….a dress like this is a keeper for a birthday brunch.
We walked a couple of blocks to the location, and even in this heat, I was comfortable and not too hot.
I am certain these dresses are on sale right now. Remember on Banana Republic, the percentages taken off are taken in the shopping bag and not on the web page.
They do it several ways…but I am certain the price is less than appears on the page.
Every time I show this handbag, someone asks about it…just a reminder that I found this treasure in a consignment shop years ago…so I cannot link to it…so sorry.
Thank you for coming along on my birthday brunch today. I hope you enjoyed it and for those planning a trip to San Antonio, this would be a recommendation for sure…it really is my kind of birthday brunch!
Now, tomorrow, I will officially tell you what it is like for me to be 70! Hope you will join me then….
