Draft Pub: Hudson Water Club, Haverstraw


If you’ve ever written your own blog, you know there’s a nifty little feature called “save,” where you can put off publishing your post till later.  That works great for procrastinating writers and busy editors (of which I am both), but sometimes it backfires, and the draft log becomes much larger than you’d like. When that happens to me, I feel compelled to purge what I’ve been saving. So today I’m launching a new feature I like to call “Draft Pub.”  It has nothing to do with beers or bars, but I think the name is kind of catchy, and the act of it gets you the information I’ve been hoarding for way too long.

Here’s the dinner I had at Hudson Water Club right after we did a photo and video shoot and a live broadcast from the restaurant back on August 27.



Hugely popular. Great fries.
Tuna tartare:




Crab cocktail:


A little much mayo for me. (And I’m big on mayo.)

The view:



Braised lamb shank with polenta:


The 411 on Hudson Water Club.
