Nestled within the idyllic setting of the 40-acre Ross Conifer Arboretum, Hudson Garden Grill is the first full-service dining destination to open on the grounds of The New York Botanical Garden. This STARR Events restaurant, helmed by award-winning Executive Chef Julian Alonzo, spotlights the innovative flavors of New American cuisine as inspired by locally sourced, ethically produced ingredients from Hudson Valley farms and other regional producers.
Providing an intimate sit-down dining space for NYBG visitors and the general public, the picturesque establishment offers a true Garden experience, bringing a sense of natural beauty, refinement, and seasonality to each aspect of its culinary offerings and construction. The space is defined by accents of steel and oxidized copper that contrast with the whitewashed, rough-sawn red oak paneling reclaimed from Garden trees felled by Hurricane Sandy. Each element complements the original architecture at its heart. Low banquet seating, an expansive walnut-topped bar, and an open kitchen designed for exhibition cooking represent the vision of Bentel & Bentel, the award-winning architectural firm behind the restaurant’s design.
