    The Historic St. Anthony Hotel debuts a new restaurant.

The St. Anthony Hotel in San Antonio recently launched Gallery On the Park, its newest eatery. The restaurant is nestled in the St. Anthony atrium with floorto-ceiling views of the historic Travis Park. The wall space in the restaurant is decorated with works of art, which are available for purchase. The Gallery On the Park menu features creative twists on Texas regional cuisine such as the BBQ salmon Cobb, the New York Strip B.L.T. or the pork belly grilled cheese.

“As we’re part of a hotel that was established by Texas’ great cattle barons, it’s only fitting that our culinary focus be on the most delicious facets of Texas-centric cuisine,” says Mark Yanke, president and managing director of The St. Anthony Hotel. “Redefining the property’s culinary experience is the next step after The St. Anthony Hotel’s multimillion-dollar restoration. Our atmosphere is transformative; it’s a setting that transcends time and surpasses the standards for luxury service. Now with Gallery On the Park, our food and beverage experience is just as evocative.”

For more than 300 years, ranching has been a way of life—and business—in Texas. The uniquely Texan ranch experience has captured the imagination of the world, and ranches have served as uncredited “stars” for some of Hollywood’s most iconic productions: from Reata, the fictitious ranch depicted in the classic movie “Giant,” to the glamorous Southfork Ranch, home of the primetime soap opera “Dallas.” Longhorns, horses, cowboys, rodeos, 10-gallon hats and cowboy boots: There is an alluring mystique surrounding Texas ranches.

 

In November, Dallas-based Todd Interests opened Thompson Dallas, part of hospitality brand Thompson Hotels. Thompson Dallas features 219 rooms, including 52 suites, two penthouse suites, and two culinary destinations.

 

After a year filled with uncertainty and countless projects and proposals put on hold, growth in any sector of the hospitality industry is always welcome news. But a statewide slew of brand-new hotels? That’s something to celebrate. Here, we spotlight just a few of the new properties offering planners and guests new spots to meet, refresh and recharge.
