SAN ANTONIO—Houston's Lasco Enterprises (The Tasting Room, Max's Wine Dive) will open a restaurant called the Boiler House Grill and Wine Garden in the historic Pearl Brewery. The brewery will also host a Foodways Texas benefit on September 8 featuring The Lodge's Chef Jason Dady and more. [CultureMap, Foodways Official]
