Are you a foodie? A foodie is someone who seeks new experiences rather than eating out of convenience or hunger. It’s hard to resist temptations of places with an appealing ambiance, a creative menu, or award plagues all over its tiny 200 square feet space. When you live in a city of incredible restaurants from hole-in-the-walls to fancy high-end restaurants, you can be torn with decisions of where to go.
Hence, my love for venues that have them all in ONE. 🙂 Smorgasburg, Plaza Hotel Food Hall, and Broadway Eats are great spots to try different food (beware: some are pop up for only a few months). This entry’s dedicated to the new, inspiring Hudson Eats over at Battery Park. With 14 award-winning eateries in one spot, something’s bound to call your name!
This modern dining terrace overlooking the Hudson River features some amazing places such as Black Seed Bagel, Sprinkles Cupcake, Tartinery, Blue Sushi, and Mighty Quinn’s Barbecue. Go with 2 or 3 friends and bam, you’re set to share and try different foods so your wallet doesn’t cry at the end of the day. 🙂
Although my friends, hubby, and I tried a few bites here and there, the Umami Burger was the highlight of the night for me ever since I heard about its unique ramen burger craze last season. We ordered the truffle cheese fries, thin fries covered with a truffle oil and peppery taste. I would recommend the cheese on the side just because I’m not a huge fan of things soaking up the crispiness of the dish.
Then we shared a truffle burger (can you tell I love truffle??) consisting of beef patty, Parmesan frico, fried egg, truffle butter, and truffle arugula. A juicy bite and full of flavor but if I ever go again, I would try the original just to compare its beef patty and flavor. All in all, this place does meet the hype that everyone talks about.
So, appetizers, entrees, dessert, CHECK. For all the coffee lovers out there… Hudson Eats does serve Stumptown Coffee at Black Seed and Blue Bottle at Tartinery! All of this in just one giant room with a breathtaking view of the river? Now you’ll never want to leave!
