Although Hudson is a new kid on the block, its setting and ambitious menu is seasoned. Combining New York and French brasserie styles and an international menu with a Turkish twist, Hudson is a concept apart from its counterparts. I met their charming Marketing Manager Ms. Gizem Kanbay and successful young chef Mr. Kaan Karagöz, who shared with me how Hudson is constantly evolving, with their take on good food, good music and art combo. I also learnt about their team’s food tasting trips to different places so they are continually emerging in their jobs. On top of that they have new themes every few weeks and are also involved in society development by creating art projects and supporting new artists through their partnership with BubiProje
From the well-thought out menu I started with the mouthwatering Teriyaki Beef Buns, then a quinoa salad with baked pumpkin and feta cheese, a side dish of salmon rolls and tied it all together with a delicious Turkish dessert called sütlaç. I was left a very happy diner and you can see why Hudson is emerging as a hot spot in the Istanbul restaurant and lounge scene. They are open from morning till midnight so patrons can enjoy coffee, breakfast, brunch or lunch and also dancing to the trendiest DJ beats.
I had a great time at Hudson. The atmosphere, decoration, food and staff were all fab and I would certainly return here for another experience of their amazing exotic dishes and cocktails. My final piece of advice is to absolutely try it.
