Creekside Park Village Center's first Tex-Mex dining option is coming to The Woodlands this summer, The Howard Hughes Corp. announced Feb. 17.

The new eatery, Baja Sur Fresh-Mex and Tequila Bar, will launch in Creekside Park West at 26543 Kuykendahl Road, The Woodlands. Baja Sur is a new concept from local restaurateurs John Amato and Jason Daly, owners of J. Henry's Draught House & Kitchen of Houston and Craft 96 Draught House + Kitchen of League City. The restaurant will open in a 4,472-square-foot space with a 1,420-square-foot patio, according to Lorrie Parise, public relations and community relations manager for Howard Hughes.

“Baja Sur will offer a hand-crafted, chef-inspired take on traditional Tex-Mex cuisine backed by an impressive selection of unique, tequila-centric craft cocktails,” said Coco Hogue, executive chef and operational partner at Baja Sur, in a statement. “My inspiration for the menu was pulled from a variety of Hispanic and Latin cultures to create dishes that will beautifully showcase fresh, locally sourced ingredients using traditional techniques from various regions for all to enjoy.”

Baja Sur's planned summer opening follows the November launch of Creekside Park West's anchor tenant, Cinépolis Luxury Cinemas The Woodlands. In addition to the theater, Creekside Park West contains more than 30,000 available square feet for retailers, including Baja Sur's space, along with two open pad sites on Kuykendahl Road.
