A grand opening for the new "rustic American" eatery The Studewood Grill is set to take place May 22 at 1111 Studewood Street, Houston, within a highrise recently constructed at the 11th Street intersection.

The restaurant and bar have been operating in a soft opening stage since January with a limited menu and weekend only service. After the grand opening, the menu and hours will expand to full service on Tuesdays through Saturdays, according to a May 11 press release.

The menu will include appetizers, soups, salads, grill specialties and desserts with a focus on prime beef dishes and fresh seafood. Other menu items include smoked boudin, grilled double lamb chops and the hickory burger, made with Canadian bacon, sharp yellow cheddar cheese, onion and a house-made hickory sauce. A full bar will offer classic cocktails and an extensive array of bourbon, whiskey and scotch offerings.

The Studewood Grill is being launched by Studewood Hospitality, a collaboration between Culinary Director Micah Dene, developer Mike Davis and his wife Gina. Together the trio also runs the Tex-Mex eatery Studewood Cantine and the rooftop venue 1111 Studewood Place, both of which can be found at the same highrise where Studewood Grill will open.

In the May 11 release, Dene said The Studewood Grill menu will give "high quality ingredients prepared without a lot of fuss, but that [are] just consistent and good every time.”
