THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Las Leyendas Restaurant Review

: The setting alone would make Las Leyendas worth a try; dramatic views from the rooftop dining room and terrace make San Antonio seem like a serious city. But the faux-frescoed interior space can also seem intimate, in a baronial Spanish sort of way, and limited seating means your party will have the almost full attention of the chef (and the one waiter---who may also be your Caesar-like salad maker should that appear on the prix-fixe menu of the week). A choice of two appetizers is offered, and the tone is set there: Asian influences might inform a cigar-like wrap; Mexican accents can be found in an updated empanada. The four entrées selections can run the gamut from game to fish and beef to duck---many with more hints of Mexico enlivening the otherwise all-American cuisine. As exotic as it may sound, game can be a disappointment---not for its preparation but for its too-tame taste. A simply seared sea bass, on the other hand, reveals the chef's winning ways with seafood. The pastry chef's creations, especially those featuring chocolate, are equally to be admired; in fair weather, consider adjourning to the terrace for this final, fourth course. It's an ideal way to celebrate the city.
