We had a week to explore and feel the real face of the beautiful Woodlands, a city in the U.S. state of Texas. I love places with big, green parks and this special area is no exception.  This city has many lovely parks that give you a perfect option for a picnic or relaxing walk. The Woodlands has beautiful buildings and a calming waterway which is considered the lifeblood of this city.

There are many things to do and see in Woodlands. But when you have a busy day, and you know that you deserve something extraordinary, you are looking forward to a good restaurant that will satisfy your needs, your vital organs, your mouth, and your nose. And believe me, in the Woodlands, you will not be disappointed when it comes to food. You will be happy and grateful.

Personally, when a new restaurant opens in my city, I want to be one of the first who will experience the exciting foodie place in the town.

Especially for you, we prepared a list of the best new restaurants in the Woodlands.

If you are a lover of Italian cuisine, Amerigo’s Grille is the perfect place for you located in the captivating Woodlands in Texas. As a new restaurant in the Woodlands, this place has already had plenty of visitors and lovers of the Italian culinary scene. And this restaurant is a good representative of this popular international cuisine. 

When we arrived at Amerigo’s, we chose where to dine since this restaurant  has five lovely dining rooms. Wherever you decide to sit, you will enjoy the elegant decor and nice service. 

The food here is the real catch since everything here is fresh and hand-prepared. We liked the innovative combinations of food this restaurant has, featuring excellent food presentation.

For appetizers, we had Italian meatballs and Shrimp Scampi, delicious seafood. We continued with the soup of the day, Lobster Bisque with  fresh Maine lobster chunks, house-made lobster stock, cognac, and tarragon.

I can eat pasta at any time regardless of how much fuel I have.  I had Rigatoni Carbonara and it had a real authentic carbonara taste. My companion for traveling and consuming tasty food had Spaghetti alla Chitarra “A.O.P” and it was delightful too. 

For dessert, we had Amaretto Cheesecake and we praised the style and the flavor.

Overall, our impression was really satisfying and we recommend this place as a new Woodlands restaurant with authentic Italian food, vintage American cabernets and Old World Italian reds.

Schilleci’s New Orleans Kitchen

9595 Six Pines Dr. #1120, The Woodlands, TX 77380, United States  +12814194242

I am always attracted to rustic places; they give me a peaceful feeling, and they are really an enjoyable environment that I like to have when I am doing my favorite hobby, consuming tasty food.

We sat in an elegant ambiance experiencing great seafood gumbo and a variety of other fresh fish dishes, such as Blackened fresh fish with mango salsa and Pan-seared fresh fish with crab meat. These dishes sit apart from other fish dishes I have consumed when it comes to the preparations and combinations of ingredients. 

We didn’t miss the opportunity to try the Shrimp Cocktail and Grilled lamb chop risotto from the Chef’s choice menu. This new Woodlands restaurant really stands out when it comes to seafood, but also the other star of the show is magnificent lamb chops.

The restaurant’s mango crab cakes are another dish that will be my repetitive dish if I visit this restaurant again. Big applause for Schilleci’s New Orleans Kitchen and its rich menu and its Fried Calamari

Back Table

2301 N. Millbend Dr., The Woodlands, TX 77380, United States  +12813646400

The Woodlands, a city in Texas, has many things to offer, and one of them is its new restaurant addition, the relaxed Back Table restaurant. 

We came here for lunch after grabbing some junk food while we were walking, and our conclusion was that we really needed something good to satisfy our specific food needs. 

And we fully got that in this family-friendly restaurant.

I am a fan of good cheese, and with this thought, I ordered Pimento Cheese as a promising snack that would lead to an excellent lunch experience. As another snack, we had Truffle & Crab Deviled Eggs with very good potato chips and truffled eggs. 

Back Table Pimento Cheese

One of my friends doesn’t skip his daily workout routine, so in terms of his health needs, we had Grilled Gulf Shrimp and Herbs Marinated Chicken as a source of proteins. 

The portions were really large and we could split the dishes we had. Voodoo Beer Batter Catfish & Chips was also something that we really liked, and our comment was that the chef that made this is really talented. We previously had burgers while on foot, but we needed more, so it was inevitable to order a Back Table Burger, and guess what? We did not regret it.

If you are planning to visit a new Woodlands restaurant, remember our recommendation. This place is lovely with delicious food and great customer service.

Tris is a new restaurant in the heart of the Woodlands, a contemporary and modern restaurant. We came here to enjoy the fine ambiance that many people told us that arrays this place and makes a nice spot to have your meal and a casual conversation with your friends. 

We were astonished by the superior technique of combining ingredients from around the world and matching them with the soul of this comfortable restaurant. 

We were hoping for a nice dinner, and that is what we got.

We ordered Lobster toast, a dish recommended by our attentive server, and Octopus with Avocado, Roasted Peppers, and Grapefruit. Not everyone knows how to prepare an outstanding octopus, but luckily for us, this was really amazing.

This made us eager to try more and more dishes from the extensive menu this restaurant has. This leads to the excellent TRIS fried chicken and Lobster pie. Maybe that day was the lobster day; everything was circling around the lobster.  The Maine lobster bisque was not an exception.

Of course, you can’t miss the Beet salad if you want to eat salad, but also you are a fan of tender meat and mouth-watering dishes.

TRIS is a very beautiful place, with interesting framed pictures around you, radiant lights, and large tables that inspire you to organize your next business event in this new Woodlands restaurant.

When we left this restaurant after having a great time drinking cocktails and eating authentic Indian food, I promised myself that the next time I come here, I would bring my girlfriend, and we will have a great girl’s night out. 

One of the reasons that I would like to bring my friends here is the fact this restaurant celebrates women’s empowerment. The nice people that run this restaurant were inspired by a young Indian princess named Amrina, and this new restaurant in the Woodlands is a tribute to her and all brave women. 

This restaurant is fashionable with an intelligent and classic twist. Everything is sophisticated and modern inspiring compliments about the tailor-made decor and the ambiance that brings the charm of India to every corner of this luxurious restaurant.  

When it comes to food, Amrina will offer innovative and interesting cuisine. We started our night with cocktails. We had Cashmere & Lace and Desi Chana Sour. Applause to the cocktails creators. 

And let’s start with the food. We recommend having quintessential bread from India, made fresh and something really good. The oysters are really good too; the spiced lemon dominates this dish.
