“What the Fearless Critic books and apps have that UrbanSpoon and Yelp don’t is a complete lack of bullshit.”
“I’ve spent years driving around with Zagat...but I think I’ll replace it with this Fearless Critic guide.”

Cappyccino’s Bistro & Bar
A neighborhood watering hole for the Alamo Heights elite

The “Cappiness” of the Lawtons’ little corner of Broadway continues in Cappyccino’s, the quintessential neighborhood bar (admittedly, the ‘hood is high-class) and casual dining spot adjacent to the more comprehensive Cappy’s. Designed for quicker in-and-out than the mothership (the booth seating is a little cramped), it’s still a home-away-from-homey kinda place with local art and a semi-Southwest feel.

The fare, including “white chili,” a Mediterranean grilled cheese sandwich, poblano shrimp pizza, and rum-cajeta crêpes, aspires to little more than to be decent bar food with beer or Scotch, and it hits that mark admirably. One caveat—or maybe two: the spinach, artichoke, and brie pizza recalls a popular dip spread on flatbread; the homemade potato chips are frequently overcooked. Dishes from next door can be ordered if the selected single malt or single-batch Bourbon (there’s an admirable number of both) seems to require more substantial fare. Cappyccino’s Kobe burger is identical to big brother’s.
