Ostra Restaurant is a high-energy restaurant featuring the freshest seafood flown in daily from around the world. Ostra, Spanish for “oyster,” is located along the banks of the famed Riverwalk where guests may dine indoors or al fresco. Executive Chef John Brand uses fish that have been raised and harvested in sustainable circumstances in his approach to ‘lifestyle cuisine.’ His signature Mokara Tasting Menu features weekly specials created from ingredients from Brand’s local sources such as Bluebonnet Farms, Oak Hill Farms, Sandy Oaks Olive Orchard, Texas Quail Farm and more. Ostra is also known for its Tequila Madness Menu which features more than 50 varieties of high-end tequilas.

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 Ostra Restaurant. 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 Ostra Restaurant, 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.
