Scott Cohen, founding chef of two new San Antonio restaurants, is now teaching aspiring cooks and chefs at Austin’s Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts.
Cohen created the menus at Pavil Restaurant and Bar and Watermark Grill. Both restaurants are owned and operated by the Watermark Hotel Company. Formerly he was chef at the Omni La Mansion del Rio Hotel, on the River Walk.
Cohen brings more than three decades of traditional French culinary experience and a resumé that includes training in New York and France to inform his teaching. Cohen will continue with Watermark Hotel Company’s two restaurants as the Company’s Culinary Creative Advisor and a member of Watermark Hotel Company’s Board of Directors.
Watermark Grill and Pavil Restaurant will continue day-to-day operations with chefs Tyler Horstmann and José Yanez respectively, according to owner Patrick J. Kennedy. Cohen will continue to assist with menu and staff development.
Located in the new Plaza Las Campanas mixed-use development at the southeast corner of Huebner Road and Loop 1604, Pavil Restaurant and Bar serves classic Parisian brasserie fare. Watermark Grill, at the intersection of Loop 1604 and Stone Oak Parkway (northeast corner) offers fresh sustainable seafood and a large, fresh raw bar.
