New Orleans-inspired Kitchen 1488 opened for business north of The Woodlands on Aug. 24.

The casual Cajun-American restaurant at 4130 FM 1488, Ste. 102, Conroe, launched this summer with a menu of Southern-style lunch and dinner fare alongside weekend breakfast specials.

The restaurant's current soft opening menu is also set to expand with several new dishes in the future.
