Situated in a glass conservatory overlooking the River Walk, Ocho serves breakfast, lunch, dinner and late-night snacks indoors and on our breezeway. Ocho has created a menu rooted in the hotel’s pan-Latin cultural influences from Mexico, Cuba and Texas. The cocktail menu highlights the tequila of the hotel’s San Antonio roots with the rum of its Cuban namesake, with a love for old school recipes and, when the occasion calls, the simple satisfaction of an ice cold Michelada. Ocho offers complimentary wifi and serves espresso drinks to stay or take away.
Ocho is now serving a limited all-day menu, weekend brunch, and weekly Happy Hour.
Reservations are not required but strongly recommended.
About Chef Jesse Kuykendall
Born and raised in Laredo, Texas, Chef Jesse Kuykendall learned about authentic Mexican cuisine from their mother. Professionally trained at San Antonio’s Culinary Institute of America and Oaxaca’s Season of My Heart Culinary School, Chef Kirk most recently created a menu of overlooked Mexican street foods for their own endeavor, Milpa Food Truck and Catering.
Most recently, Jesse won season 47 episode 13 of “Chopped” on the Food Network, marking them the first San Antonio-based chef to win a national cooking series. The episode’s three-round challenge was themed “PB and J,” where professional chefs used baskets of mystery ingredients to make three-course meals. Jesse’s winning dishes included: hot dog quesadillas (now available on Ocho’s lunch & dinner menu), 30-minute mole, and peanut butter churros.
