Award-winning Executive Chef, Jeff Axline, has introduced some new items on the various culinary menus in the hotel. That includes dinner at the onsite restaurant, Las Ramblas, as well as the Cork Bar, which makes up a good portion of the public lounge area on the ground floor.
Guests should start their afternoons or evenings with a refreshing cocktail or sangria at the bar before transitioning into the restaurant for a perfectly-cooked NY Strip with a rich jus, organic salmon or a crowd favorite, Berkshire pork chop.
Las Ramblas is offering an Easter Brunch celebration on Sunday, March 27 between 11 am and 2 pm, and will be serving a variety of holiday favorites and specialties such as lamb osso buco, roasted chicken and Texas farm striped bass. Reservations are required.
Fiesta is THE party to attend in San Antonio. The only thing is...it's a party that lasts for two weeks! This local tradition runs from April 14 through April 24 and includes an almost insane amount of parties, parades, fundraisers, arts events and more. For those looking to make the most of it, Hotel Contessa is offering an over-the-top Ultimate Fiesta Package.
The Ultimate Fiesta Package includes the Contessa Suite, a commemorative Fiesta medal, two tickets to "A Night in Old San Antonio (one of the more popular events featuring dozens of food and drink vendors, music and more), confetti eggs, and the oh-so-necessary "Fiesta Recovery Breakfast for Two."
For breakfast, enjoy an assortment of scratch-made San Antonio favorites such as huevos rancheros, Andalusian breakfast skillet or eggs Benedict. The patio seating makes dining at Hotel Contessa a very lovely experience. Located along a quiet part of the river walk, their patio has beautiful views of both the river and downtown.
