Landry’s debuts Chart House restaurant in San Antonio

[Update – a friend went to the Chart House this week and said the food was very good – but added they also give you too much of it!  I still haven’t been]

I know some friends that will be very glad to hear this. I too am a fan of the Chart House – but I doubt I’ll brave the traffic, parking, and long ride up the elevator to sit and spin on a revolving restaurant overlooking downtown San Antonio, Sunset Station, The Institute of Texas Culture, and the Alamo Dome.

But maybe I will – maybe for a really special occasion (like finally launching one of these startups!)

Landry’s Restaurants Inc., the Houston-based contractor that operates the restaurant in the historic downtown structure, has reopened the Tower restaurant as the Chart House. This will be the company’s first Chart House in Texas.

There are currently 27 Chart House restaurants in the country, primarily on the East and West Coasts. Chart House restaurants have been in existence since 1961 and are in cities such as New York, Boston, Miami and San Diego.

“Chart House restaurants are renowned for having one of the best collections of visual landscapes in the country,” says Landry’s President and CEO Tilman Fertitta. “We are excited to unite two legendary concepts, Tower of the Americas and Chart House, creating the ultimate iconic destination in San Antonio.”

San Antonio’s Chart House will sell fish, seafood, prime rib and steaks. However, the restaurant will continue to serve top selling dishes on the Tower restaurant’s menu, such as its crab cakes, maple glazed quail and shrimp fresca.

Landry’s (NYSE: LNY) also owns Landry’s Seafood House, Saltgrass Steak House and Rainforest Cafe and a number of hotel and casino resorts.
