A Farm-to-Table Diner Is Opening on Reade

Grazin in HudsonThe folks of Hudson, N.Y., have long complained about being overrun with people from New York City—now the traffic is heading the other direction. And what’s more, Tribeca is getting another new diner: Grazin’, a true farm-to-table restaurant in Hudson, N.Y., that’s also “the first Animal Welfare Approved restaurant in the U.S.” is opening in the former Park Lane Deli space at 56 Reade. It’ll be a sit-down restaurant with takeout, and they’re shooting to be ready in the first quarter of 2015.

From its website:

The idea for Grazin’ came about when Dan and Susan Gibson (owners of Grazin’ Angus Acres in Ghent, NY) convinced their son-in-law and daughter, Chip and Christine, to move from Brooklyn to Columbia County. When the couple—and their quickly growing family!—moved to the farm in October of 2009, they truly began to appreciate how important it is to be able to, as Michael Pollan says, “shake the hand that feeds you”… to really know where your food comes from. Together with Dan and Susan, they realized an opportunity to share that reality with their local community. Now the food that their families eat can be the food that your family eats.

We, at Grazin’, believe that the local food movement is as important as the organic food movement. Grazin’ gives customers the opportunity to enjoy local, organic and biodynamic (when possible) food gems, such as Grazin Angus Acres‘ 100% Grassfed and Finished Black Angus Beef, all in the heart of Hudson, New York, at the community’s beloved diner location.

The Hudson location’s menus are below, along with a special burger (photo courtesy Grazin’.)

  1. The food at grazin is amazin
    A tad pricy for upstate but I think they may have a big hit downtown
    Yum and so welcome

  2. Agreed about the food. Best burgers I’ve ever had. I’m first in line at their opening.
