The Monterey

1127 S St. Mary’s San Antonio, TX 78210
(210) 745-2581

The conversation went something like this: “Hey – let’s build exactly the sort of place where we’d want to hang out.”

The food should be delicious, inexpensive, and a hell of a lot of fun to eat. The beer list should celebrate craft brewers and microbreweries. Our wine list ought to be comprised of varietally-correct, terroir-driven selections that are interesting and affordable. And we’ll open it in the beautiful King William neighborhood, in a converted old Sunglo gas station (with a great big open patio).

And, well, that’s what we’ve done. We’ve built The Monterey as a place for our fellow food lovers, beer nerds, and wine geeks. And we hope you’ll come join us at our sweet little addition to San Antonio.

The Cove is locally owned & operated by Sam & Lisa Asvestas and a wonderful team.  Our passion is healthy, delicious food and live music.   The Cove restaurant was born in April 2001 as an after thought to a carwash and a coin laundry.  In the beginning we only served  ice cream and hot sandwiches.

As I discovered that I truly enjoyed the hospitality business and food; I continued to expand the restaurant.  We were now a smoky bar, that served bar food.  In 2003 I began studying Ayurveda.  Ayurveda is holistic medicine from India.  It teaches balance in life and most importantly that food is either  healing and nourishing or poisonous.  I began to change my eating habits, getting rid of processed food and fake food.  There was a contradicition about the food I was serving but would not [...]
