Hudson 29 has several different dining spaces: a very lively bar, quiet wine room, main dining room, and covered patio. As with all Cameron Mitchell restaurants, the service was excellent. Ample parking in back is a plus.
Our group enjoyed a 2012 Artazuri Garnacha (Spain)($44) and a 2011 Tamari Malbec â€œReservaâ€ (Argentina)($40).
We shared the house baked four cheese stuffed dinner rolls, featuring Asiago, Provolone, Mozzarella, Parmesan, for ($7); the shrimp taquitos, pico de gallo, cojita ($11); and the dip trio: hummus, guacamole, and smoked trout, served with warm tortilla chips ($10).
The pan-fried Lake Erie walleye, cole slaw, hand-cut fries, remoulade ($26) was very good, as was the slow roasted prime rib au jus, horseradish mashed potatoes, horseradish sauce ($29). We enjoyed the steak and enchilada (marinated hanger steak, cojita cheese enchiladas, roasted corn ragu with avocado)($25), and the rotisserie roasted half chicken with horseradish mashed potatoes ($18).
Desserts were announced at the table, a nice concept: pineapple upside down doughnuts, caramel dipping sauce; Texas sheet cake; triple berry cobbler (all served with Graeter’s ice cream, all $8).
A few minor grumbles: wine markups are high, there is no bread service except the $7 rolls, and some would have liked a few more appetizer and dessert choices.
Overall, Hudson 29 offers a broad, eclectic menu of well-prepared dishes aimed to please everyone, sushi, salads, flatbreads, sandwiches, and large plates like prime rib and roasted chicken.
