A development in San Antonio’s Tobin Hill has secured five new restaurants and two law firms as tenants.

The Creamery, a project from AREA Real Estate and Embrey Partners at 847 East Ashby Place, has seven tenants lined up to fill the ground-floor commercial space, below the soon-to-be-completed Tin Top luxury apartments on the upper floors. 

Law firms Carabin & Shaw and Watts Guerra will move into the space this summer as well as the restaurants Hook, Amelia Tapas & Wine, Lunatique, Creme Coffee and Easy Baby, the San Antonio Business Journal reported. The two law firms will occupy about 34,000 square feet combined.

Moris Saide, CEO of Only 1 Hospitality Group, said he teamed up with AREA principal David Adelman to take on the Creamery project.

“We were trying to see what were the best concepts that we could present to the area and to the city of San Antonio,” Saide told the outlet. “Something different, something very unique, and something that creates an environment where all these different units could coexist without competing and cannibalizing each other.”

Following Saide’s blueprint, the restaurants won’t serve any of the same products.

Hook is a seafood restaurant that will overlook the River Walk and have a “tropical atmosphere.” Creme will be a casual meeting space that serves coffee and wine, and next door will be Amelia, a small-plate Spanish restaurant with caviar and charcuterie boards. Lunatique will be located on the roof of the Creamery and will include a diverse menu and a DJ booth. Easy Baby is being designed as a speakeasy-style artisan pizza place, and it will have a secret entrance to a 30-seat sushi restaurant.

“We want people to transport themselves somewhere special every time they take a bite, that makes them feel so cool,” Saide told the outlet. “You know, maybe forget about work if they go to a lunch meeting on a Monday.”

Developers said they hope to open the restaurants by May.
