Looking for Food in Hudson, New York

I'm looking for a good, informal restaurant in the area
of Olana Historical Site, near Hudson, New York.

    I would strongly recommend Wunderbar & Bistro. It has a good bar and well prepared Austrian-German food and an attentive owner. And reasonable prices. Try the schnizel or the bratwurst. The menu's at www.wunderbarandbistro.com

      In Hudson, try Charleston - pleasant and comfortable
      room and interesting cooking; also the restaurants at
      the St. Charles Hotel -
      For really interesting Thai, head across the river to
      Catskill (about five minutes away) and try Wasana's
      Thai Restaurant on Main Street - it is like eating in
      a family kitchen and totally unlike all the
      oversauced, too sweet food that passes for Thai

        We tried Charleston and had a mixed experience -- I mean, the atmosphere was certainly pleasant, and the food tasted good -- but it didn't really seem to justify the high menu prices. I had a bowl of pasta that should have cost $9, tops, for $13. Most of the entrees seemed to be between $16 and $21, which seemed about $5 more than they should have cost. That said, it's a nice place; while it would be totally undistinguished if it were in the city, it doesn't have much competition in new American cuisine in Hudson.

        I was more impressed with Cascades, a sandwich shop at 407 Warren St. They have good soup, and my sandwich (warm roast pork with barbecue sauce and caramelized onions) was very tasty. Ellen's egg salad on a bagel was nothing special, and the bagel was a little stale.

        It's a little ways from Hudson (maybe 25 miles east),
        but the West Taghkanic Diner (in West Taghkanic, NY) is
        a great representative of diner cuisine. If that fits
        what you're looking for.
