Dallas-based dining chain Ida Claire will open its first San Antonio location – offering Southern-style eats and cocktails – at the Alamo Quarry Market on Monday, Oct. 7.

The restaurant will feature a variety of special plates, including fried green tomatoes, Nashville hot fried chicken, and shrimp and grits, as part of its breakfast, lunch, dinner and weekend brunch menu.

The 6,800-square-foot space, previously home to chef Johnny Hernandez's El Machito restaurant, will include both indoor and patio seating, as well as an outdoor rose garden and airstream bar.
