The Los Angeles-based Mendocino Farms Sandwich Market will open its first eatery in The Woodlands this year, The Howard Hughes Corp. announced Feb. 28.

The sandwich and salad restaurant is planning for an early fall opening on the first floor of the Howard Hughes-developed Two Lakes Edge residential complex, located at 2000 Hughes Landing Blvd., The Woodlands.

Mendocino Farms will occupy in a 2,838-square-foot space with a 900-square-foot patio next to recently announced fitness studio tenants StretchLab and Row House.

“Mendocino Farms is a neighborhood gathering place serving chef-driven, thoughtfully sourced sandwiches and salads with white tablecloth hospitality,” said Reid Tussing, Mendocino Farms chief development officer, in a statement. “Our seasonally rotating menu features fine dining-quality ingredients sourced from deserving local farms and food artisans. We push the limits of what a simple sandwich or salad can be by envisioning our restaurants as gathering places where friends, families, and coworkers can come together over a good meal.”

The restaurant will serve a variety of sandwiches, salads and side dishes as well as local wine and beer. The Hughes Landing location will be Mendocino Farms' fifth in the Houston area in addition to its nearly 30 across California.

The chain is also planning to launch in Dallas and Austin this year, according to its website.
