Over the past few years especially, San Antonio has seen tremendous growth in the area of agriculture and organic farming. It contains some of the country’s most fertile land for growing crops. Due to this growth, gardeners and farmers are able to sell and produce on much larger scales, giving access to chefs and restaurants all around the city.

This restaurant is one of a kind. Gwendolyn's is dedicated to only sourcing from the local community and passionate about cooking food the old school way. Dating back to the industrial revolution - approximately 1850, this was the last time food was honest. There are no blenders, mixers, choppers, ice cream machines, deep-fryers, burr sticks, nor anything else with a motor - nothing with a plug. Although this isn't easy for head Chef Michael Sohocki, he and his crew are dedicated to the philosophy and bringing their customers only the best.

This American Eatery is located in the beautiful Hotel Emma, on the bank of the San Antonio River. The farm to table restaurant is straightforward, creative, and guided by flavor. Their menu is a vegetarian's dream, but each dish is so flavorful you don't miss the meat. Although the menu is very vegetable oriented they offer an array of meat and protein dishes to die for. Chef John Brand is inspired by what’s in season, and what feels good in the center of a table shared by friends.
