Las Canarias restaurant reflects the charm and ambience of colonial Spain, taking its name from the Canary Islanders who, in 1731, established the first civil township in Texas on the banks of the San Antonio River. Las Canarias Restaurant offers epicureans a romantic and relaxing experience, whether it be for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Guests may dine indoors in the multi-tiered dining room, or alfresco while watching the river barges float by on the serene Riverwalk. Las Canarias’ elegant setting is enhanced by daily menu features from Executive Chef John Brand, who favors the freshest ingredients from top-rated farms and ranches and uses indigenous herbs and spices to reflect New American cuisine with the strong regional flair of the Texas Hill Country.

Raised on a farm in the Midwest, Executive Chef John Brand developed a knack for tending animals and nurturing a garden at a young age. His hands-on experience cultivated a passion for locally sourced, fresh ingredients that he applies to the Watermark Hotel & Spa’s Pesca on the River restaurant and companion hotel Omni La Mansión del Rio’s Las Canarias, both located on the world-renowned River Walk in San Antonio, Texas.

Brand brings more than a dozen years of experience at luxury properties to Las Canarias and Pesca on the River. Prior to his move to the River Walk restaurants, he served as chef de cuisine at Charles Court restaurant at The Broadmoor Hotel in Colorado Springs. He refined his gastronomical talents as executive chef at Fossett’s at Keswick Hall in Keswick, Virginia, and as executive sous chef at the Little Nell in Aspen, Colorado. Prior to that, Brand was executive sous chef at the Hyatt Regency Scottsdale Resort at Gainey Ranch in Scottsdale, Arizona, and maintained several positions at the Hyatt Regency Beaver Creek Resort and Spa in Beaver Creek, Colorado.

Chef Brand’s vision for Las Canarias introduces a broader variety of Hill Country game meats to the menu, such as buffalo flank steak (a signature Brand dish) and oxtail. Brand incorporates vibrant, regional ingredients, including Native American greens and products such as quinoa that were once prevalent in the South Texas region.

A wholesome “lifestyle cuisine” approach is part and parcel to the menu at Pesca on the River, which Brand prefers to a “spa cuisine” approach. The use of fish raised and harvested in sustainable circumstances is emphasized at the seafood-focused restaurant. Brand’s enthusiasm for the rich history and vibrant culinary scene of San Antonio is captured in his menus at Pesca on the River and Las Canarias, continuing to delight regulars as well as new guests.
