Next Tuesday, April 14th, we are thrilled to announce that we will open NYBG’s first ever full-service, sit-down restaurant! Hudson Garden Grill will be open to both Garden visitors and the general public looking for a seasonal, locally sourced dining experience. The latest exciting phase in our partnership with Stephen STARR Events will feature a multi-course lunch menu of refined New American cuisine inspired by locally sourced and ethically produced ingredients. Visit the new establishment for a light breakfast, afternoon tea and light fare, or an early supper during an upcoming visit to the garden.
Hudson Valley farms and other regional producers such as Hudson Valley Duck Farm, Heather Ridge Farm, and Old Chatham Sheepherding Company will provide the highest quality ingredients to Executive Chef Julian Alonzo and his team. Julian attended the French Culinary Institute, honing his skills at both La Caravelle and Maxim’s under Chef David Ruggiero, and was later named “Alumni Chef of the Year.” After receiving praise from Crain’s New York Business and an invitation to cook at the James Beard Foundation, Julian seeks to bring innovative, restaurant-inspired fare to the world of catering and special events. read more »
