Hudson Clearwater doesn’t hide their phone number or address, but if you didn’t know to look for it, you probably wouldn’t find it. The restaurant’s address looks like an abandoned storefront, and you have to enter through an unmarked green door on a cross street to discover the patio and dining room. It’s worth the hunt — chef Wes Long’s thoughtfully crafted, seasonal American fare would appeal to anyone fortunate enough to stumble upon it. — Michelle Kiefer, 1/12/2012, America's 10 Most Secret Restaurants.

Foursquare Tips

  • Entrance is on a courtyard on Morton. Don't get fooled by the Hudson address.
  • try the hc pimm's. the watermelon is perfectly refreshing! cheers
  • Whether for dinner or just a drink, get the Calacas. It comes out the color of blood from the beet juice, mixed with jalapeno tequila and chili salt for kick, with lime and agave to sweeten a bit.
  • The atmosphere is very warm and charming and the entire space helps create the illusion that you are no longer in NYC but at an upstate manor.
  • Get the duck breast! Juicy on inside, crispy on outside. Best duck I've had!
  • The food tasty, seasonal, often organic regional fare features some haute comfort: duck confit, pork belly, sea bass, Brussels sprouts with bacon, cauliflower potato gratin, apple tart.
  • The duck is delicious!
  • Beautiful people.
  • Amazing! Entrance is on Morton through unmarked courtyard. Waitstaff exudes hipster vibe, but food is impeccable farm to table and space is charmingly cozy.
  • Literally everything is delicious, the patio is lovely, and their private dining room for 10 isn't prix fixe or anything.
  • Yum get the Kona Big Wave!
  • Great place to impress your date. The dark and rustic atmosphere is sure to set the mood. Though the cocktail menu isnt too extensive there are many unique options. Try The Duchess
  • The johnnycakes are amazing. As a six dollar side they're practically giving them away
  • Delicious quinoa salad with poached egg
  • They are almost a 1 Michelin Star restaurant. Look for the line open'g in the wall off Morton at Hudson (SW corner) dinner- duck. Weekend brunch- all good!
  • In terms of cocktails, try the "Mutiny". So. Good.
  • The clams, kale, gnocchi and lemon broth app is excellent (and an interesting combo). Pork was very good, and much better than the flank steak.
  • It doesn't sound like it works, but the magic clam broth brings the gnocchi with clams together. The only issue is that the serving is too small!
  • Super friendly staff with unbelievable food! The gnocchi was unreal, as was the scallop appetizer!
  • A small outdoor patio, try the sandwiches for brunch they're really good.
