CURRENT at the Westin Hotel

Current at the Westin Hotel

The Woodlands now has several restaurants with scenic views and CURRENT at the Westin Hotel is one of my favorites.  I recommend you start and end your meal there at the bar upstairs, SideBar.  It has an amazing view and terrific outdoor seating.  It also has an excellent cocktail menu with some choices that match some of the best mixologists in Houston.  So for a pre or post dinner drink, it is one of the best and most sophisticated bars in the area.  CURRENT also has killer views both inside and out.  It looks out over the waterway and waterway square.  It is also stunning on the inside, featuring a large tree sculpture in the modern appealing room.  CURRENT has a great menu of fresh seasonal American favorites.  Some popular choices include shrimp and grits, the Florida cobia, and the strip steak.  The side orders shine as well and the mashed potatoes might be my favorite ever.  They were creamy, silky goodness on a recent trip. The brussels sprouts are also tasty and shareable. The apple brown butter puff is also one of my favorite desserts there.  It was just the right amount of comfort food indulgence in a modern setting.  They serve three meals a day at CURRENT so it is a great place to enjoy the spectacular view on a weekday or weekend breakfast or lunch.
