The Woodlands restaurant scene is maturing quickly, and while there are several brand new restaurants and markets in the area, Hubbell & Hudson Market & Bistro is a place you can't miss.
Hubbell offers a multitude of options for you to satisfy your culinary needs - it's not your typical specialty grocery store. If you have shopped or dined in Hubbell, you will agree that it's a necessary place to stop while visiting The Woodlands. So, without further ado, here are the top ten reasons you need to visit Hubbell & Hudson.
10. Gourmet Food To-Go
Yes, dining inside the bistro can be a bit pricey, but you can purchase most of those dishes off of the bistro menu, as well as other chef-prepared items, at the Gourmet To-Go counter. Each item is pre-cooked, so all you have to do is heat it in the oven or microwave before serving - so much better than any frozen dinner. Bring a smorgasbord of food home for the family: lasagna, haricot verts, mushrooms, chicken, and more. Hubbell also has a microwave in the small dining area on the first floor, so you can heat a plate of food and eat inside. Or, gather some cold foods, such as beets or tomatoes and mozzarella cheese, to eat as is.
9. Baking Supplies
Hubbell's grocery section has an array of baking ingredients, supplies and decorating items, helping you decorate a specialty item, be it a cake, pie, cookies or cupcakes. From the variety of colorful sprinkles to the special jams, jellies and sweet sauces for fillings, you can make an incredible baked creation.
8. Burger Bar
Make a burger at brunch, lunch or dinner at the burger bar inside the market. Just about any burger is scrumptious, but if you can't make a decision, order the Bistro Burger; it's a signature item and a must-have for anyone ordering a hamburger for the first time inside the grocery store, or at the bistro. Located in the sandwiches section on the brunch and lunch menus, this eight-ounce sirloin patty is topped with oven-dried tomatoes, Vermont cheddar and applewood-smoked bacon, all between a challah bun. The sweetness from the oven-dried tomatoes, smoked bacon and challah, paired with the melted Cheddar and juicy sirloin patty, make this burger one of the best items here.
A scoop of refreshing gelato is an excellent after-dinner treat.

It's a perfect treat for the kids to enjoy while walking around the store, or as an after-movie date-night dessert. Hubbell has a wide variety of specialty gelatos, so whichever type you crave, they've got it. Those who love fruity flavors should opt for the raspberry gelato - it never disappoints - or the strawberry, but there are always pistachio and chocolate. Hubbell also offers seasonal flavors. Purchase a cup of the honey pumpkin before it's gone.Next Page
