The best restaurants in San Antonio are getting ready for the Ford Holiday River Parade.
Lighting of the River Holiday Parade
Start with dinner in our dining room and then see the parade that kicks off the holidays for San Antonio!
What’s included? Just about everything! We’ve put together a 3 course prix fixe dinner. The first two courses you will enjoy in our main dining room before the parade. Close to the start of parade you will take a box of desserts to enjoy at your reserved riverside parade seat. Gratuity and tax are also included in the $98 price tag. Coffee and tea is included, all other drinks or additional items will be billed, based on consumption, before the parade starts.
Kids 12 and under will choose from the Biga kids’ menu as well as a box of treats to enjoy riverside. Timing is important for this package. The parade starts at 6pm so seating for the pre-parade dinner will be limited to 5pm, 5:15PM and 5:30pm. All reservations with parade packages purchased will be expected to vacate the dining room and occupy their parade seats no later than 7pm.
Wondering what to expect to be on the menu? As with all menus at Biga, it is a work in progress and could change a little before parade night. Here is how it is shaping up so far..

-Chicken fingers, fries and fruit
-Pasta, alfredo or marinara with chicken, turkey or shrimp
Seating options will be 5pm, 5:15pm and 5:30pm. Be sure to arrive on time so you’ll have time to enjoy dinner, we expect everyone in your party to vacate the dining room table no later than 7pm to accommodate other reservations later that night. After purchasing tickets for the parade, we will contact you within a few days to confirm your arrival time.
*This is a nonrefundable event. If the parade is cancelled for a reason beyond our control, we hope you will still enjoy dinner with us.*
Parade start time is 6pm and is expected in our area about 6:45pm.
Valid for dinner seatings between 5:00pm – 5:30pm.
If a parade seat isn’t important to you, we’ll be accepting reservations 7pm and later for those that like the idea of the parade but are more focused on a great restaurant experience. Of course, if the parade is still on your mind, we’ll have our balcony open to all guests who want to catch a glimpse of the dolled up barges on the river level.
Don’t forget…Parade nights make getting in and out of the downtown area tricky. We do not have valet or any parking options available this night. Ride services like Uber and Lyft are probably the best way to navigate your way to Biga.
The River Terrace @ Biga is a perfect space for Riverwalk Weddings, Corporate Events & Holiday Parties!
The top floor of the International Center
Come see for yourself. We’re having an open house September 30th 5-8pm. Check out the space, sample some snacks and drinks. Also, meet the Biga staff and some vendors that can elevate your simple gathering to a memorable event!
Everyone is welcome. Please make sure to RSVP on our FB page.

Easter & Mother’s Day Brunches are always a hit at your favorite Riverwalk restaurant.
In San Antonio there is no better season than Spring. Cool temperatures with bright sunshine and one of the most unique Easter and Mother’s Day Brunches in the Alamo city.
The food writers for the San Antonio Express named the Biga brunch one of the best in town. Entrees like Rosemary Roasted Ribeye of Beef, Maine Lobster & Shrimp Roll, Spring Squash & Goat Cheese Enchiladas, and Fresh Gulf Fish share the spot light with more breakfast-style offerings including a Vanilla Brioche French Toast, Crab and Bacon Frittata, and a Biga version of Eggs Benedict. After ordering your entrée you will help yourself to an array of appetizers, salads, muffins, sushi, anti-pasta and so many different desserts you’ll likely make a few trips.
Kids 12 years and under have their own menu of entrees to choose from with options like French toast, Mac-n-Cheese, or a kid-sized Beef Tenderloin with Mashed Potatoes.
Pastry chefs Amy and Shenda get very creative with the “kids dessert table.” These desserts are served at kid’s height, making the goodies very reachable for young brunchers.
We book up pretty quickly, be sure to call (210)225-0722 and make a reservation.
Adults $65 / Kids, 12 and under, $27.
Brunch is served from 10:30-4pm.
Need Parking, Biga offers Self Parking now at the One Alamo Center. Click Here if you’d like to see a MAP
