Gone are the days of the market, bistro and Viking cooking school at Hubbell & Hudson. The market closed and the culinary classes were eliminated in April 2014, but the bistro remains. This Woodlands restaurant showcases the talent of executive chef Austin Simmons through his seasonal menu offerings. Hubbell & Hudson originally began serving steaks, burgers, sandwiches and plates made from ingredients sold in the market, but now Simmons gathers ingredients from local purveyors, and sources various meat and seafood from around the world. Dishes like the delicate sea bass topped with luscious lump crab meat smothered in a beautiful, creamy choron sauce (a twist on the classic bearnaise sauce that features tomato paste instead of tarragon) sitting atop a creamy puree of lemon and goat cheese yukon potatoes illustrate Simmons's culinary expertise. Diners should also check out Simmons’s ambitious tasting menu restaurant Cureight, nestled in the depths of the restaurant near the kitchen. The earthy yet ambitious dishes with equally ambitious and savvy wine pairings, is an hours-long dining experience well worth driving for. Houstonians who live far from The Woodlands might even consider a “staycation” in the Market Square area so they don’t have to drive home afterward.
