Meet the Maker
While the culinary scene inside the walls of Hotel Emma is rich, dynamic and worthy of many days of exploration, the surrounding Pearl campus is an exhilaratingly dense neighborhood of some of the best restaurants, bars and cafes in the country. Plus, we host a well-established, twice-weekly farmers market abundant with seasonal produce, prepared foods and South Texas goods like handmade goat’s milk soap, local honey and lustrous beeswax candles. Come hungry and ready to explore.
