Should you still be missing Gwendolyn, chef Michael Sohocki’s elegant River Walk spot, his new venue demonstrates the same dedication to craft and beautifully plated food. Local and seasonal flavors are carryovers, while the larger, more casual dining area offers room to spread out. Our delightful meal brought Spanish-style albóndigas (above) in an earthy tomato sauce, garnished with basil leaves and shavings of a pecan-smoked cow’s milk cheese from River Whey Creamery, in Schertz. On the opposite end of the earthiness spectrum was a grilled redfish filet with a lovely garnish of flash-fried spinach and grilled lemon.
