Woodlands American Grill has been called the Cheers of Preston Hollow. For 13 years, it’s been a gathering place for locals, who often see someone they know there. And its standing as a neighborhood spot that serves weekend brunch has existed for almost as long.
The current menu has undergone no substantial changes since it was created a decade ago. John Nickolas, the managing partner, says people love the crab cake eggs benedict. That’s served with citrus hollandaise, ranchero, avocado cream and a side of Parmesan-truffle potatoes. Another favorite is the French toast, stuffed with strawberry mascarpone and topped with honey berries and maple syrup.
