Delaware and Hudson
Where we've featured it
$58, FOUR COURSES || Delaware and Hudson defies all tasting menu stereotypes. This isn’t some ridiculously over the top production – it’s just dinner. Really, really good dinner. For $58, you get an assortment of appetizers, a pasta course, an entree, and a dessert. The food is all inspired by the Northeast, and the experience feels like a Hudson getaway.
Delaware and Hudson is small, but it’s comfortable, and it sort of just feels like a little room that somebody’s mom turned into a restaurant. They only serve a prix fixe menu, which might sound inconvenient - but it actually makes the whole ordering process a lot easier. To start, you’ll get a few things like pretzel rolls and bluefish pate, and everyone will get to pick a meat, fish, or vegetarian entree. It’s a lot of food and a fun experience, and, for a prix fixe, it isn’t too expensive at $65 per person.
Let’s acknowledge that after the holidays are over, there really is no point to winter. It’s f*cking cold, there’s dirty snow everywhere, and everyone you follow on Instagram who lives in LA gets 1,000 times more irritating. Fortunately, there are a few special restaurants capable of making us (almost) grateful for winter. Delaware & Hudson is one of them - the hearty food feels like it was made to be consumed on a cold night, and the autumnal vibes will help get you back in the seasonal spirit.
Dinner here is a prix fixe, and it’s $58 per person. The food is uncomplicated, locally sourced stuff like beef cheeks with parsnip puree (which sounds like something your parents would be like), and the restaurant itself isn’t quite as cool as some of the other places in Williamsburg. And that’s a good thing. It’s nice, but it doesn’t feel like it’s trying to be trendy, and you won’t have to elbow a 19-year old wearing Yeezys in order to get a seat.
