THE WOODLANDS, TX -- As the sun set on the evening of June 9th, The Woodlands Resort hosted a private, VIP grand opening preview for Back Table Kitchen & Bar, officially debuting the casually elegant new dining destination set amidst the gorgeous, natural backdrop of the property’s lush golf greens.

More than 200 guests sipped on the restaurant’s myriad of adult milkshakes and hand-crafted cocktails, including the spicy, signature Acapulco Sunset with tanteo jalapeño infused tequila. On the waterfront patios overlooking the 18th hole of the Panther Trail course, the Champagne Allstars band entertained the crowd spilling outside for a taste of live action cooking stations orchestrated by Chef David Morris, including a succulent pig, Braised Beef Short Rib and King Salmon. Making a splash inside were southern-inspired bites like Deviled Eggs, Chicharron Pimento Cheese and Louisiana Shrimp & Grits along with an oyster bar and a bounty of scrumptious desserts including Toasted Coconut Cream Pie with Macadamia Nuts plus Challah Bread Pudding with Whiskey Apples.

Notables making the festive summer kick off scene: Jim Carman, Gordy Bunch, Dr. Shelley Sekula-Gibbs, Thomas Luersen, Jorge Franz, Gil Staley, Greg Parsons, Scott Harper, Dany & Ahiri Merlo.
