About the restaurant
"Where craft meets quality. An evening at Sidecar, located in the heart of New Braunfels at the historic Prince Solms Inn, is like stepping back in time. The ambiently lit speakeasy features an extensive whiskey selection, live jazz and fantastic tapas. Whether you're enjoying the live music downstairs or imbibing in one of the private party rooms upstairs, the beauty of the building does not disappoint."

We tried almost everything on the menu. The food was a good value and creative. Out of the samosas, deviled eggs, crudo, and jerk shrimp we liked the crudo the least but mostly because the rest of the ingredients overwhelmed the fish. For the price point of that dish 5 tiny slivers of hamachi were just not enough to overcome the orange segments and coconut milk. The atmosphere was very nice, particularly after dark when the lights were dimmed. It created a great vibe. We will be back for one of the monthly tastings or classes along with more date nights.

About the restaurant
Comming Soon-

Fiume - in English meaning river - is a restaurant concept that merges the authentic flavors of Italy with traditional Texas ingredients. The artisan, Texas-crafted pizza incorporates local flavors that highlight Neapolitan-style pizza in what we define as Texapoletana.
Fiume - also once a city in Italy - was known as a cultural melting pot in the height of its existence. Similarly, the San Antonio River is the core of our dynamic and culturally diverse city of San Antonio. Our vision and menu are exemplary of an elevated dining experience revered for its deep local roots and hyperlocal culinary craftsmanship

Drinks were really good. Pizza was exceptional. My only negative was how cold it was inside. But not really a negative
