Hotel Contessa’s showpiece restaurant is a culinary tribute to Texas, so it’s fitting that its backdrop is one of the Lone Star State’s most striking locales: the River Walk. While Texas-inspired cuisine anchors the menu, executive chef John Zaner is quick to note that Ambler Texas Kitchen & Cocktails does not simply serve Tex-Mex. Here, diners can delight in chicken-fried Texas quail, roasted cauliflower and chorizo queso, an array of ranch-cut steaks, and other house specialties. The folks at Ambler sum up the River Walk restaurant’s offerings best: “Brisket from nearby Augusta Ranch, coffee beans from San Antonio’s own Merit Coffee Co., and Shiner Bock-infused shrimp boil tell you everything you need to know about our Texas-on-a-plate menus.”
