Hughes Landing in The Woodlands Lands Whiskey Cake

The waterfront pedestrian-friendly complex in The Woodlands named for the famous recluse has signed another place to eat some grub: Whiskey Cake. The rendering above shows the Restaurant Row, part of the 66-acre spread on Lake Woodlands, which is also planned to include office buildings, apartments, entertainment venues, a hotel, grocery store, and other retail. Community Impact News reports that this row could house as many as 6 restaurants; by 2015, Whiskey Cake will occupy about 8,000 sq. ft. here, joining Escalante’s Fine Tex-Mex and Tequila, which is slated to open first sometime next year.

  • I’m intrigued by the fact that we have so many Houstonians who dismiss the virtues of urban density, and yet we have so many of these master-planned suburbs that are attempting to capture the essence of that very same thing. We say there’s no demand for it and it’s a waste of our time to encourage residential and mixed-use development downtown, but then we have this, and we have the Uptown/Galleria area that is going that direction, and even Sugarland built itself an old-fashioned style city square. It’s one of those weird Texas/conservative things, I guess. We want it, we just don’t want the government to say we want it or to fashion policies around it.

  • Great addition to The Woodlands. Can’t wait to enjoy the new restaurants.
