The Woodlands has many places to dine out. Most are units of large chains, but we've noticed an uptick in independent, mom-and-pop restaurants with owners who are active, involved, and on the premises.
The latest privately-owned restaurant to appear on the scene is Crust Pizza Co., located at Woodlands Parkway and Panther Creek in the Panther Creek Village Center.
|Crust Pizza Co. - Under Construction|
(Crust Pizza is so new that they're not yet open - their contractors were busy finishing out the restaurant when we stopped in for a visit. The brand-new pizza oven was still in its wrapper, and the phones were in their boxes, awaiting connection.)
Crust Pizza Company is the brainchild of Clint Price and Mark Rasberry. Clint lives in the Woodlands, and Mark and his family are relocating from Dallas after the school year ends.
Mark and Clint describe the restaurant as a family-focused spot, with handmade food, good prices, and a slightly upscale family atmosphere. A variety of pizzas will be front and center, with Chicago-style thin crust and a wide variety of fresh toppings. Pasta, sandwiches, and salads will also be on the menu, and daily specials will be offered. Beer and wine will be available as well.
The cozy location will seat about 50 people indoors, and another 25 or so on the wraparound patio amidst the pine trees.
We're looking forward to the grand opening of Crust Pizza Co., and will have a full review once they're up and running.
