This past Friday, Hudson was once again the destination for The Five-Point Weekend Escape Plan: "Chow Down in Hudson." Don't mistake my snarkiness for chagrin over being left out, but you have to wonder if the author of this new piece, Sierra Tishgart, ever set foot in Hudson, or if she did when.
In "Where to Stay," she mentions Hudson Merchant House and Union Street Guest House and says of the latter: "One block from the main house, there's an entire bungalow, complete with four bedrooms as well as a few common rooms and a screen porch." The bungalow in question, once part of the Union Street Guest House complex, is now leased as a private residence. She mentions The Barlow as well and says that the hotel's proprietors, Russell Gibson and Duncan Calhoun, also operate Croff House, "a B&B right next door." The Barlow is on Warren Street; Croff House in on Willard Place.
In "Where to Eat," she mentions Bonfiglio & Bread and the dish served there that everyone raves about: poached eggs over avocado. She calls Fish & Game "Hudson's only fine-dining restaurant." What about Swoon and The Crimson Sparrow? What about DA|BA and Ca' Mea and Vico? She's entitled to her opinion, of course, but she makes an unfortunate factual error when she describes Hudson Food Studio as "the perfect place to while away the afternoon with friends." The restaurant doesn't open until 5 p.m.

Congratulations to Sideshow, The Spotty Dog, and Hudson Vintage for getting mentioned in "Oddball Day" both in 2010 and again in 2015.
Gossips Update: Miraculously, since this post was published, the piece about Hudson in New York Magazine has been edited, and most of the errors pointed out here have been corrected.
