Perez has earned national attention and awards during his 20 years working in kitchens, including the title of “Top Latino Chef” in 2009 by the Flavors of Passion Awards. In 2013,  the Arcade was featured as one of the best new restaurants in San Antonio by Eater and San Antonio Magazine. His return here was seen as more evidence of San Antonio’s growing sophistication and breadth as a culinary destination.

San Antonio’s Arcade Midtown Kitchen, the new venture from chef Jesse Perez and one of Eater’s Most Anticipated Openings of 2013, opens today in the historic Pearl Brewery. Chef Perez’s menu (see below) serves “Americana cuisine” with Latin flavors and a touch of Mediterranean influence. Think meatballs served on top of hummus, mussels doused in a citrusy habanero broth, and and a house-aged ribeye served with ranchero sauce. The space is open, with windows overlooking the 19th century Pearl Brewhouse and a bar that serves drinkers indoors on one side and outside on the other. Even the decor references the building’s past, with light fixtures made from old beer cases.

“First and foremost, my family’s here,” Perez told the Express-News in a February 2013 interview. “I always told myself that if the ultimate goal was to have my own place, I wanted to do it back here in San Antonio. Also, the development of what’s going on here at Pearl — when I saw all this going on, it was a no-brainer. But with that, I had to make sure I had a well-developed concept that Pearl was interested in, but, more importantly, that was going to work in San Antonio.”

While not connected too closely with the “local culinary community,” the closing of Arcade comes as a huge surprise. Every time we went, the place was packed. Moreover, the rapid closing – just 5 days out – seems a bit fishy.
