The Woodlands offers residents a plethora of dining options with shopping centers and free-standing restaurants on almost every corner. Several noteworthy places to try that have recently opened in the past year, include:

• Moyz Street Food’s menu consists of burgers and tacos and has become a “go-to” place for a quick lunch or dinner. Located on Richards Road in Spring, their tasty taco combinations have earned them 4.9 out of 5 stars on several restaurant ranking websites. They also offer a wide variety of breakfast tacos which are perfect for a lazy weekend morning or if you want to bring a bunch to work and be the office hero.

• The Blue Fish Sushi restaurant has a 16 year award-winning history and opened a new location on Hughes Landing Blvd. in The Woodlands last year. This swanky eatery comes complete with craft cocktails, the freshest sushi and sashimi, as well as grilled items. They also have a certified Sake Specialist on staff! The Blue Fish is a great date night spot and one to consider for your next catered event.

• Papa Amadeus is a quaint local Italian restaurant with a relaxing atmosphere perfect for a small gathering or date. Their menu dazzles with made-from-scratch items such as rich lasagna or daily risotto specials, catch of the day and of course a variety of pasta. Diners can watch as their food is prepared in the open kitchen while enjoying a delicious appetizer and glass of wine. Don’t be fooled by the modest prices, the meals here are superior!

• Fielding’s Wood Grille is a local favorite, known for its craft beers and use of local ingredients. They have a bakery on site and make their own sauces and side dishes in-house. A tasty brunch is served on weekends until 3pm. With weekly features you’ll see something new on the menu each time you come in.
