I recently visited Atlantic Station’s newest pop-up restaurant Hudson North with my friend Katy. Atlantic Station is a neighborhood in midtown Atlanta with condos, town homes, and an outdoor shopping center. Atlantic Station invited local restaurateurs to open pop-up restaurants in vacant spaces throughout out the shopping center. Hudson North is the second pop-up to open this year. It will remain open till the New Year.
The owners of Atlanta’s Cypress Street Pint and Plate, Billy and Jenn Streck started Hudson North. The menu focuses on using seasonal, fresh and all local ingredients.
Using an old shuttered restaurant space, the owners had to get creative when designing the interior. The staff at Hudson North made everything inside. They used mason jars for lighting, tables from the previous tenant, wood paneling on the walls, and stenciling throughout the space. The interior is beautifully decorated!
After our tour of the restaurant, we decided to order from the menu. The restaurant has an extensive list of cocktails, beer and wine to choose from. Katy and I both ordered a cocktail. I ordered the champagne cocktail, its made with a Fruit Lab Hibiscus Liqueur, Bittermens Burlesque Bitters, topped with Champagne and served in a flute.
Next we shared two small plates from the menu, the figs and the fried parmesan fritters. They were both delicious. This was my first time having figs and I really enjoyed them! The figs were cooked in an amber ale beer with bacon, Chile and almonds. The Chile really came out in the after taste and it was a little surprise at the end!
For dinner we both ordered seafood dishes, I ordered one of the most popular items on the menu at the moment the scallops. They were served on a bed of succotash. The scallops were cooked to perfection and the succotash was delicious! Katy ordered the Ahi Tuna.
For dessert we shared an apple pie, served in a mason jar. I absolutely adore mason jar meals and this apple pie was amazing!
