Steakhouses are no doubt abundant in Texas, which means that it's best for newcomers to offer something completely new. That's pretty clear in the case of Tris, situated in The Woodlands, as its offerings are of global nature and somewhat unconventional.Read More
The restaurant is upscale, with a multi-course tasting menu and a la carte offerings ideal for business or romantic dinners. It is also attainable for those on a budget.
Lunch time and happy hour feature more wallet-friendly options. Guests will find pretty hearty dishes on the menu, from handhelds like a $14 jerk chicken club on a house-made brioche bun to entrees such as a $25 steak ravioli dish of 10-year-old Akaushi wagyu and truffle parmigiano-reggiano broth. Happy hour food and drink specials occur 3-6:30pm Tuesday through Saturday.
Highlights on the dinner menu--and there are plenty--should satisfy both carnivores and pescaterians. Shareable dishes like Korean butter-poached crab, lamb lollipops, shrimp toast and Texas quail topped with bacon tomato jam whet guests' appetites for even more creative offerings to come.
Main dishes beyond steak aim to be exciting and conversation starters. There's the seasonal antelope on the menu, which arrives with pumpkin bisque and potato gnocchi. There's also Ora king salmon in a black garlic bisque. And another option is the Thai Patagonian Toothfish, which is made with a shrimp crust and accompanied by wild mushrooms and fennel.
Steaks are aplenty and are wet aged and dry aged. Choose from a 20-ounce Kansas City strip, the Woodforest steak board for four or Japanese wagyu.
And finally, CureEight is the signature tasting menu at Tris. It's eight courses, chef driven and seasonal.
