American Eatery at Hotel Emma
Coming together for good food at your favorite place… it’s an American tradition. Hotel Emma embraces the tradition at Supper, where Chef John Brand’s approach is straightforward and creative, guided by flavor, what’s in season, and what feels good in the center of a table shared by friends. Brand is a true representative of that uniquely American class of chef—self-taught, working his way up from teenaged dishwasher to nationally-recognized chef. John’s twenty-five years of impressive stints include The Little Nell in Aspen, The Broadmoor, and Keswick Hall.

“Hotel Emma showcases its culinary prowess in multiple ways, but it’s on-site restaurant, Supper, located along the northern extension of the San Antonio river walk, is their best representation of what good food is all about. This farm-to-table restaurant almost dares you to not like veggies. Their menu is largely vegetarian, but each dish is so flavorful you don’t miss the meat…A meal at Supper is an utter delight, not only because of the food and clear spirits cocktails, but also because of the stellar staff, beautiful views of the river from their outdoor patio, and the simple feeling that you’re somewhere special.”
“Its chef, John Brand, champions not just farm-to-table fare, but root-to-stem cooking. Sit near the open kitchen to watch the rotisserie char vegetables while dining on smoked cauliflower and roasted carrots and crisp quail with pickled corn relish.”
“Chef John Brand wanted a hotel restaurant that didn’t seem like one, and he succeeds with Supper, where the farm-to-table magic and mundane (beet salad, anyone?) are elevated by his imagination. […] The crisp black, white, and stainless steel look of the dining room is well suited to the restored historic building at the Pearl, and the servers in their red-checked shirts add a touch of nostalgia.”
