- New Southtown spot Bar Loretta is partnership between San Antonio natives Roger Herr and Paul Petersen.
The new eatery is a partnership between San Antonio native Roger Herr and chef Paul Petersen, a fellow Alamo City native.
A Monday sneak peek offered diners a sample of seasonal menu items including spicy tomatillo Gulf shrimp, peach-glazed Texas quail, chili-lime Brussels sprouts and Texas goat cheese polenta bites. Based on the crowd response, the latter — pillowy fried polenta stuffed with Dallas-based Cheesemakers Inc.'s artisan goat cheese — is likely to become a Bar Loretta favorite.
