THE WOODLANDS, TX – Whether their days are crammed with work or play, Woodlands residents and visitors crave a noontime pick-me-up that stimulates the taste buds and fill the tummies. Fortunately, two area establishments have decided to open their doors to lunchtime crowds to the delight of diners everywhere – Back Table, and Sorriso Modern Italian Kitchen.

Revamped menus and expanded hours make for a daytime dining treat

Back Table – an eatery based on a cuisine of “Southern with a Twist” – prides itself on its open atmosphere and revels in its tagline, “Where every seat is the best seat in the house.” Located at The Woodlands Resort with an outdoor terrace overlooking the 18th green and pond, Back Table Kitchen & Bar is a flavorful new addition to the area, treating guests to a relaxed dining experience that feels like a real escape from the everyday humdrum. Back Table is a casually stylish, festive and family-friendly gathering place for seasonal, southern-inspired fare with global accents.

Lunch is served seven days a week from 11:30 am to 2:00 pm and includes taste items for all palates. Appetizers include avocado toast, zesty wings, and crab-and-truffle deviled eggs. Soups and customized salads are catered to each individual’s taste. And the main courses can range from the quick-and light – like their handheld sandwiches – to the hearty, including their signature Voodoo Beer Batter Fish ‘n’ Chips, the steak frites, and the popular vegetables and polenta.

While Back table’s curious combination of quiet wooded dining and family friendly atmosphere (complete with kids’ game room) is appealing to many, the more centralized business-minded urban diners can get their fill at Sorriso, located inside The Westin at Woodlands Waterway, one of the main retail and business hubs in The Woodlands.

The story of Sorriso centers around three Italian passions: great food, an exuberance for life, and the joy of sharing good times with those who matter most. Here, family traditions are infused with a distinctly modern flavor. Enjoy authentic Italian countryside cooking prepared using the freshest ingredients in a warm, comfortable setting that evokes the kitchens and dining rooms of the Old Country.

The new lunch menu includes the Pasta E Fagoli soup for starters, salads with customizable proteins, a scrumptious selection of hand-tossed pizzas, and paninis, and more. Lunch can be enjoyed there during the hours of 11:30 am until 2:00 pm.

Sorriso is located at 2 Waterway Square Place in The Woodlands. Learn more at
