Since the news first spread that Zak Pelaccio was creating a new restaurant in Hudson, people have been eagerly awaiting its opening. The enthusiasm intensified at Winter Walk last Saturday, when people got a chance to sample the cuisine: grilled handmade sausage with mustard. But for the people who live in closest proximity to the restaurant, on Union and Warren streets, anticipation turned to anxiety when all of this equipment was installed on the little addition behind the original brick building.
There have been assurances that barriers will be constructed to mask the units and baffle the sound. Because the original drawings submitted to code enforcement and to the Historic Preservation Commission did not accurately show the size and mass of the equipment (the units are bigger than anyone expected), new drawings have been submitted, and it is likely that the project will come back before the HPC on Friday, December 14.
