Fans of margaritas and Mexican food have something to celebrate this week. Popular San Antonio restaurant La Fogata has opened a third location dubbed La Fogata Cantina on Austin Highway near Alamo Heights.

La Fogata Cantina took over the old house of Nosh, which occupied the floor under Silo Alamo Heights. Both properties closed at the start of the pandemic. Patrick Richardson, owner of Silo and La Fogata, said he hopes to reopen Silo later this month or early February.

The new location of La Fogata can accommodate 150 guests inside and 100 others outside on a large patio. Richardson said the restaurant will serve the same basic menu of Mexican favorites and margaritas as existing La Fogata properties on Vance Jackson Road and in the Dominion Ridge Mall.

La Fogata Cantina, 1133 Austin Highway, 210-824-7456,, Facebook: @lafogata. Hours: 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Thursday to Sunday
