Frederick's Bistro Restaurant Review

: Frederick Costa has helped form San Antonio’s fine dining scene over the years from his eponymous, Asian-French restaurant in upper Alamo Heights. But with the birth of the Bistro, he’s exploring a new audience (Audis as opposed to Caddys) and reinvigorating his cuisine. Appetizers such as oven-roasted shrimp in tomato-basil cream sauce or the pizza of shredded duck and shiitake mushrooms take on an especially lively tone in this paneled and dramatically lighted setting. Though spring rolls with mint and cilantro dipping sauce appear at both restaurants, there’s less emphasis here on Frederick’s Asian-French fusion. Instead, dishes such as “healthy” fish in light saffron fennel broth and duck leg confit served with garlic potatoes rissollées take the spotlight, along with grilled lamb chops Dijonnaise. The wine list is good but somewhat predictable; a daily happy hour in the adjacent bar more pointedly emphasizes the different demographic.
