When did this happen? I was hoping to go back there next time we visit.

Are the other places nearby still open?

Brasserie closed quite some time ago along with its sister restaurant Watermark Grill.

Other places in the area that are good are ...

Roaring Fork (same shopping location as Brasserie)
Wild Fish (same shopping location as Brasserie)
Drews American Grill (old Watermark Grill location)

All are great and have an excellent happy hour daily.

Almost a year ago. This article that mentions it closing is from June 1, 2011.

Second the recommendation of Roaring Fork above. It's a neat place.

Also check out Auden's Kitchen on Sonterra Parkway at Sigma Drive. It's a good addition to the restaurant scene in the same part of town.

Roaring Fork and Drew's are pretty good.

BPavil basically didn't give value for the money they charged. Went there 3 times. Feh - got a better red snapper at Sea Island for a lot less.

I was particularly impressed by their cheese tray which sat out for the flies to have a snack.

They got busted by the Kitchen Cops once.

It's all the execution.

Go to Urban Spoon if you want reliable restaurant reviews.

They should have left that lot as a cow pasture.

Wow, last summer... the last time I was in the area was around UTSA graduation in May of last year.

We'll have to go to one of the other nearby places next visit. I thought the Roaring Fork was good anyway. Gotta check up on the old neighborhood and see if they kept the trees alive.

roaring fork and wild fish are both VERY LOUD. think bowling alley during league play, but louder.

I like WF's menu but it's not what I would call a pleasurable dining experience.

Now the sign says closed.

Food Flashes: June 10-16 - San Antonio Express-News

Some interesting side notes on recent closings:

Yanitizos - Years ago I used to work in this area and ate at Yanitzios...great mexican food and it was always busy. I read a while back that this guy and Violo barrios were original partners in their first restaurant and then split their ways and each started their own place. Even though I havent at there in years...sad to see it go.

Barbaresco - this place was a mystery and anomaly from the begining. It took years to construct and its over the top ornate construction in that part of town was always questioned. If you read recently in the express it was some type of money laundering asset of some reputed mexican drug lord. I heard it was really nice on the inside, but after that kind of press....business had to go downhill.
