The Howard Hughes Corp. announced May 12 a new culinary concept, Back Table Kitchen and Bar, is coming to a stand-alone building at The Woodlands Resort at 2301 N. Millbend Drive, The Woodlands around June 2.

According to a press release, the 5,413-square-foot waterfront venue with an 800-square-foot terrace overlooking the 18th green of the Panther Trail golf course is being reimagined to fit the aesthetic of the restaurant.

“With Back Table Kitchen & Bar, we are excited to bring a flavorful new addition to north Houston and The Woodlands Resort. Responding to market demand, our goal was to reposition the previous Robard’s Steakhouse and rethink how the space functioned both for the community and our guests,” The Woodlands Resort General Manager Gregg Harper said in the release. “We wanted to continue our priority of offering a standout, signature restaurant that draws visitors from The Woodlands and across Greater Houston while creating a lighter, brighter and more relaxed and accessible environment for all day and more frequent dining. Ultimately, that set us on a path that led us to Back Table Kitchen and Bar.”

Back Table Kitchen and Bar will initially open seven days a week with bar and snack/small plates service beginning at 4 p.m. and dinner served from 5-9 p.m. 281-364-6400.
