Kitchen 1488, a new restaurant inspired by Louisiana comfort food, is planning a summer opening on FM 1488 north of The Woodlands.

The kitchen, located at 4130 FM 1488, Ste. 102, Magnolia, is currently under development and is targeting an Aug. 10 launch, according to owner Jeff McGhee.

The New Orleans native said his eatery will feature a menu of traditional soups, salads and American fare alongside Southern specialty dishes, such as boudin egg rolls, shrimp and grits, seafood nachos and po'boys.

The restaurant will offer dine-in, delivery and to-go service with a pickup window for curbside orders. Sunday brunch will also be offered in the future, McGhee said. www.kitchen1488.com
