Foodies from every village in The Woodlands came out earlier this month at The Woodlands Waterway Marriott to feast on tastings from over 40 local restaurants at The Taste of The Town organized and hosted by The Woodlands Chamber of Commerce.
The annual event attracted over 2,000 attendees that enjoyed a wide range of samples showcasing bites from simple to refined for every palette. In addition, guests were able to help determine who receives bragging rights by casting votes to select “Best of Taste” winners. The winners taking home the accolades this year are as follows:

People’s Choice Award: Killen’s Steakhouse
Smoked pork belly burnt ends with a cherry habanero BBQ glaze

Best Appetizer: Johnny’s Italian Restaurant
Johnny’s Steak Nachos

Best Entrée: The Butler House
Malbec Braised Short Ribs, Garlic Mashed Potatoes, Reduced Braising Jus, Sautéed Carrot

Best Dessert: Nona’s Italian Grill
Panna cotta (a creamy Italian jello /pudding with special berry sauce and fresh fruits)

Best Decorated Booth: Zanti Cucina Italiana

“Best thing about this event is, of course, the food,” JJ Hollie said, CEO and president of The Woodlands Area Chamber of Commerce. “But it’s also a good event for the community to gather and enjoy the different kinds of food.”

The event spotlights Chamber members and demonstrates the wide array of options for residents of The Woodlands to eat, socialize and enjoy while supporting local businesses.
