John  Mackey has been named executive chef at Las Ramblas in Hotel Contessa.  Prior to joining the River Walk restaurant, Mackay was executive chef and food and beverage director for the River Terrace Inn and Restaurant Cuvee in Napa, California. A graduate of New England Culinary Institute, Mackey has held similar positions at Seattle, Miami, Naples, and Daytona Beach.

Mackey plans to change the menu at Spanish-themed Las Ramblas by adding a collection of 40 new tapas dishes, bringing tastes of Spain's regional cuisines and its Moorish influence to San Antonio.

Will chef celebrate SA's Canary Island heritage, too, with some dishes heavy on the cumin? We'll find out when the new menu is rolled out in July.
