Executive Chef Ed Ebert has been working in restaurants since he was 15 years old. Ebert came to the Southwest attracted by the area’s rapidly evolving and vigorous culinary environment.
In a little over three decades, Ebert has compiled an impressive resume. In San Antonio, Ebert cooked at the Hyatt Regency, Las Canarias (La Mansion del Rio), the Gunter and the Fairmount hotels. Ebert also held the reins at the world-renowned Little Nell Hotel in Aspen, Colorado. A Five Diamond, Four Star property, where he was mentioned by author Pat Miller in her book The Gabby Gourmet… “Chef Ed Ebert has the food been better than ever. Soup is magnificent, Pheasant Consommé- with a dash of vegetables, a puff pastry top…Mixed Green salad with Spicy Rabbit and Yam sausage, and a Dried Cherry vinaigrette,…Lamb Racks crusted with Pistachio pesto,…it’s as near as heaven as you can get… you will never forget your visit here, it’s fantasyland come true!” CNN even paid a visit to the hotel during his tenure.
Then joining Zuni Grill, Chef Ebert and his staff created the legendary Zuni salsas (or Zalsas), featured in Bon Appetit and Gourmet Magazines. Largely, as a result of his work at Zuni, the restaurant has been featured in Continental Airlines Magazine. Appeared on the Travel Channel, Good Morning Phoenix (CNN affiliate), PBS, KENS, KSAT and KMOL and in Bon Appetite, Gourmet Magazine, Texas Monthly, Chef Magazine, The New York Times and The San Antonio Express News. Nations Restaurant News mentioned that Ebert’s signature style has always reflected the premium he places on using ingredients indigenous to the area. Working with area farmers in Central Texas, Ebert is designing a garden behind the stadium where RS3 has elevated the food and beverage program to amazing new heights. The current plans involve the local school district’s field trips which has the students learn to plant his garlic bulbs and returning in May and June to harvest them as the key component in the Signature Garlic Fries at the stadium.
