The Hudson takes diners back to school

Hot on the heels of former owner Ian Schrager’s new venture, Morgans Hotel Group is celebrating the opening of an exciting new dining experience at the luxury Hudson Hotel in New York this week.

Hudson Hall – a stylish new drinking and dining venue decked out to look like an Ivy League mess hall – offers diners the chance to craft their own meals by choosing from a selection of plates made from sustainable produce, local to the Hudson valleys.

Designed by Studio Arne Quinze, the interior has been decorated to look like a college mess hall

Howard Wein from Morgans Hotel Group said: “Hudson Hall is a social restaurant and bar experience where guests serve themselves and are encouraged to be themselves. The quality of our food and drinks will drive the interactive experience set in yet another world class design space. Hudson Hall is the perfect complement to the array of popular entertainment destinations at this storied hotel.”

Chef Brian Young – who created the regionally-sourced menu using international flavours and techniques – has worked with some of the best restaurants in the country, including Citranella, Pop and Tavern on the Green, bringing an extraordinary depth of culinary knowledge to the experience.

Guests at Hudson Hall can expect to dine on a number of interesting dishes, including peeky toe crab salad sandwich, Amish chicken confit casserole and heirloom spinach salad with crystal greens. A playful cocktail menu echoing the atypical college shot list includes kamikazes, lemon drops and woo woos, while the house wine list features red and white prosecco.

Designed by Studio Arne Quinze, the restaurant’s unique interior has been decorated to look like a college mess hall, with long communal wooden tables finished in rustic black and exposed red brick work. There is also a visual installation piece by artist Arne Quinze that features rotating images of an academic theme.

Hudson Hall is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, seven days a week from 6am-12am the next day.
