Yeah I was just there and even though it has a little of that suburban look, I liked the infill and it looked like it added some more activity.

San Antonio is now home to acclaimed Chef John Besh's restaurant, Lüke, opening on the city's famed Riverwalk this fall. The casual chic restaurant features a menu of authentic Old World cuisine, combining classic German and French cooking techniques served in a warm and inviting space of stylish vintage interior, rightly situated in San Antonio's popular downtown district.

At the helm of the kitchen is Executive Chef Steven McHugh, long-time chef of the Besh restaurant family and former Executive Chef of Besh’s famed Restaurant August in New Orleans. Chef McHugh’s evolving menu of bistro specialties includes house-made pâtés and abundant plateaux of cold, fresh seafood, as well as chef-inspired blackboard specials and farm-fresh ingredients, perfectly enticing to the urban diner.

To complement its cuisine, Lüke offers an extensive French, German, and Belgian beer selection, including exclusive house and specialty Texas brews, as well as wines from the Loire, Alsace, and Savoie regions, and Badischerwiens of Germany.

The colors really look great on the river side of the building. I wounder why they didnt incorporate the dark brown on the the rest of the building facade? But either a nice midrise for SA.

I am really disappointed with the riverwalk side of the building. It looks like some ugly building you'd find from the 60's or 70's. If they had done stone all the way up to the top of the curvy part it might have looked better...but as for what they've done it makes me want to look away from that side of the river. I suppose I'd have to go there to really see what it's like but that's the impression I get from the photographs.
