Wm. Farmer And Sons - Hudson, New York

Wm. Farmer and Sons Boarding and Barroom on Front Street has created a beautiful and professional lodging and dining experience. The rooms, coffee bar and other boarding amenities are elegant and comfortable, employing a style reverent of Hudson’s history while acknowledging its modern relevance. But the big gem at the center of it all that’s a gift (not just to guests but also to spoiled locals) is the barroom. For a starter or bar snack you can get boudin balls made with the forage-fed pork from Kinderhook’s Lovers Leap Farm, a grilled octopus salad or a frisee salad with pork belly and cambozola cheese with a grapefruit and sweet shallot vinaigrette. The mushroom starter is a mix of top-quality fresh mushrooms on puff pastry in a ham-spiked chicken. There are also excellent barroom staples including French onion soup, a fried chicken sandwich and a perfectly executed burger in a town of great burgers. The teak with fries is outstanding; so are the crispy confit Hudson Valley duck with beans and a beautiful trout paired with crawfish, butter beans and a citrus emulsion. For vegetarians, there’s the velvety gnocchi, squash, braised kale and apple in a Parmesan gravy that’s a hearty joy. Starters and mains range from $10 to $30 and the menu will change seasonally. The cocktail menu at Wm. F&S is a reason in itself for a visit. Try the El Guapo, with tequila, lime, cucumber and a dash of Cholula hot sauce rendering a complex but measured bite.
