This morning’s lead story highlighted manyWestport restaurants with outdoor dining.
Now another joins the list.
Hudson Malone was packed last night, for a soft opening. The official debut is today.
The “old world culinary saloon” — on the corner of Main and Canal Streets, across from Coffee An’ — is owner Doug Quinn’s second venture. He a former, well-known bartender at P.J. Clarke’s.
Quinn’s first Hudson Malone (named after his 2 kids) is on New York’s 53rd Street. Both feature large bars, classic cocktails and “upscale pub grub.”
It takes guts to open a new restaurant during a pandemic. But even before COVID, Quinn planned for outdoor, all-weather dining.
Hudson Malone takes over from 323 restaurant. Before that, it was Bogey’s, Oliver’s, and perhaps half a dozen other spots now lost to history.
Here’s to many more years of memorable meals there.
