Food Is Back on South Front Street

Just six weeks after the abrupt and distressing closing of MOD, Dana Wegener is back in business on Front Street--this time two blocks farther south, right across from the train station in the building previously occupied by Strongtree Coffee Roasters.

The new restaurant, called Relish Hudson, opened this morning (just in time for NADA), and word soon spread about the opening and the amazing food on offer. Gossips was there for lunch and witnessed a nice steady stream of patrons--some who took their food away with them, some who enjoyed it there at one of the handful of tables or at the bar that rings the room--and this without making any effort to advertise their opening! Such is the power of Hudson's social network--electronic and otherwise.

Relish Hudson, which serves breakfast and lunch, is a delight for vegetarians (I had an incredibly good salad of kale & Brussels sprouts), but I can't imagine many omnivores finding the menu lacking. The restaurant (if my memory of what I saw on the door is correct) is open from 6 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Friday. Go down and relish Relish Hudson!


  1. Speaking of kale, Da|Ba currently (the menu changes almost daily now based on available local options) is offering a terrific kale salad with dates. At $10, it's almost a full meal.

  2. I always loved that location and was sad when Strongtree closed. I'm thrilled it is now a too sweet for words café. I can't wait to check it out!
