Business spotlight: Anne Marie’s Carriage House Bistro

Anne Marie's Carriage House Bistro at the San Antonio Botanical Garden.

In 1896, the Sullivan Carriage House was built for Texas civil-war hero turned banker Daniel J. Sullivan. By 1987, stonemasons were taking apart the piece of Richardsonian Romanesque architecture to move it to its new home at the San Antonio Botanical Garden. Nearly one hundred years after it was first built, the Carriage House was reopened and restored to its original grandeur.

Today, Anne Marie’s Carriage House Bistro resides in the building. Located just at the entrance of the botanical garden, the restaurant fuses incomparable views with “food from the heart with a passion for flavor, texture and variety.”

The menu is made from scratch with only the freshest ingredients – from the breads to the smoked meat to the dressings and desserts. With specials and “healthy options” daily, patrons are guaranteed flavors as varied as the flowers on view.

“It’s a lot of fun.” Manager Erin Gates explains, “You can come in and have something different pretty much every time.”

foodGiven its location at the San Antonio Botanical Garden, Anne Marie’s Carriage House Bistro is a destination for receptions, baby showers, and bridal showers. Offering linens, food (including menu options from their parent company, award-winning Anne Marie’s catering), and access to Gertie’s Garden (from 6 p.m. daily), Anne Marie’s Carriage House Bistro promises unforgettable tastes and experiences for you and your guests.
