🍷 San Antonio sips: A Perfect Day

👋 Megan here. My friends and I recently stopped by A Perfect Day, a wine bar in Southtown that opened last year.

The vibe: Elegant and simple with a bit of spunk, including a sparkly streamer wall that looks like it's leftover from New Year's Eve.

To drink: I had a chardonnay while my friend enjoyed a red blend. The bartender was knowledgeable and ready to recommend and let us sample wines.

Best bites: There's a small menu of food made next door at sister bar Gimme Gimme.

  • We split the fish tacos ($16) with pan-seared mahi, pineapple pico de gallo, slaw and a chili lemon aioli. It was the perfect balance of flavors and very fresh.
  • I also had to try the cheese curds ($12) — former Wisconsin resident here — which came with a poblano ranch crema. The dipping sauce was great and they were well-breaded, but the cheese didn't squeak.

The bottom line: It's a nice place to stop by with friends after work.
