Woodlands American Grill
A member of our party would not begin her meal until she had her fix of soup: creamy braised mushrooms with goat cheese crostini. And although we usually skip lunch salads, we were gently pushed in the direction of ordering a complex mix of macadamia-and-citrus-crusted cedar-plank salmon piled atop a heap of greens mixed with fried capers, roasted red peppers, pine nuts, and sherry vinaigrette. A colorful port-poached pear arrived for dessert with vanilla and dulce de leche ice creams and chocolate tuille. We are fans of the clean lines of this restaurant, rather like an homage to Frank Lloyd Wright.
