Hudson Food Studio Plans Expansion

“Dave Chicane, founder of Hudson’s cherished Food Studio, is relocating to the space at 746 Warren (formal the Crimson Sparrow), with seating up to 80 patrons, and another 30 in the spacious courtyard, which is undoubtedly one of the dreamiest outdoor dining spaces in town.

The state of the art kitchen and food preparation area will allow a more dramatic approach to Dave’s cooking, and enable him to expand Food Studio’s hours and book private dinners. He is planning to add 15 new employees to his 11 current staff.”

Hudson Food Studio turns smallness into a virtue with vibrant Asian-themed dishes, lively vibe

”This farm commitment is symbiotic. Farm partners celebrated on the sidewalk chalkboard cooperatively plan in winter for coming-year crops. Even now, in February, a farm's abundance of parsnips, sweet potatoes or eggs makes its way onto the Food Studio's daily menus.

Hudson Food Studio specializes in superfresh Southeast Asian food

From the Vietnamese mint to the pork belly, almost everything is locally sourced, he points out, from nine farms, most about five miles away.
