An Important Message from Mayor Rosenthal – COVID 19


Based upon an Executive Order from the Governor, it is with deep regret that we announce the closure of all Alamo Heights dine-in restaurants effective as of 11:59 p.m. tomorrow, March 20th as well as all gatherings in excess of 10 people.

During this period, many of the restaurants in Alamo Heights will be offering take-out, curbside and/or delivery service. The restaurants are doing this not to make a profit but simply to keep some of their staff employed and to provide a public service. While many of us are leaving our houses on a limited basis, if at all, I hope you will consider helping the businesses during these difficult times. Many of the restaurants also are allowed to provide wine, beer and mixed drinks if ordered with food. Please call or check the restaurant’s website for operating hours and, depending on the establishment, understand that orders may need to be placed well in advance. Several have limited menus that are, or will be, posted on their websites. The names, phone numbers and email addresses/websites for the Alamo Heights restaurants that we know are offering such services are, in alphabetical order, as follows:

I would encourage you to forward this listing to any friends living in the area.

I would strongly encourage you to support the “Mom and Pop” businesses on Broadway and Austin Highway that are vital to our community. Many of them will offer curbside or delivery to the extent possible.  We owe it to them to consider any means of utilizing their services as they attempt to weather this storm.

Separately, we have had several calls regarding the cancellation of trash pick-up on Thursday and Friday. Our goal is to reduce the exposure of our public works staff to keep them as healthy as possible. Many cities utilize automated machines and pick-up once a week while we normally have the luxury of twice a week pick-up along with recycling on Wednesdays. Rest assured that will monitor this situation to ensure this does not become a public health issue.

Wishing you health and safety.

Mayor Bobby Rosenthal
