Today we had to run by Market Street to pick up something for dinner, and drove by the location of 1252 Tapas Bar, the new Tapas spot in the Woodlands. They're getting ready to open in a few days, and we had a chance for a brief look-around and a chat with Hernan, the manager.
The focus of the establishment is obviously tapas, but it's also going to offer a wide selection of wine and a full bar. The bar and mingle area take up a good portion of the bright, airy restaurant, and there's an outside patio overlooking the Woodlands Central Park, complete with both tables and sofas for lounging.
This is the organization's first restaurant in the US. Previously, they have operated restaurants in Mexico City.
Since the closing of Mi Luna, the Woodlands has been without a good place to enjoy tapas. We're looking forward to sampling the tapas at 1252; we'll be back for a full report after the grand opening.
