What could be more Texan than a big, gleaming high-end steakhouse—and a home-grown one to boot? With a prime location on Houston Street, not far from the Majestic Theatre, Bohanan’s is considered by many to be the best steakhouse in town. It definitely fits the decor stereotype, all dark wood, creamy white tablecloths, clubby cocktail bar, and humidor stuffed with expensive cigars. Chef/owner Mark Bohanan opened this restaurant in 2002 in a historic building with long-beam pinewood floors and has perfected the cooking and service over the years. On the first floor, a pianist tickles the ivories in Bohanan’s Bar, with a banquette of tufted leather and a long, slender bar. Upstairs, in the dining room, the kitchen pumps out prime mesquite-grilled steaks, seafood flown in daily, and a la carte sides. The waitstaff is well-trained, knowledgeable, and ultra-attentive. You can’t smoke inside any San Antonio building, but you can buy that big cigar from the humidor and enjoy it on the patio.
