A hands-on cooking school will be showcasing their chefs in an intimate outdoor space that is set to feature live music amid a backdrop of sprawling city views.
Since the COVID-19 pandemic began, Hudson Table has been offering al fresco dinners and brunch along a car-free stretch of road between their Clinton Street storefront and the 14th Street Viaduct. The business will be taking that concept to new heights with the season change, as they are beginning a series of five-course meals out of rooftop space at West Elm’s property.
Entered via an elevator at 333 15th Street, the roof sports socially distanced tables and will seat about 30-40 diners per night. The dinners will be run Thursday through Sunday and will feature a family-style menu that rotates at least once per week.
The endeavor’s first round features a menu of snapper and shrimp ceviche, burrata di bufala, a grilled Spanish octopus, slow-cooked short ribs with summer corn couscous, and a salted caramel chocolate cake. The meals will be cooked by the chefs that teach Hudson Table’s classes and run around $95 per person.
Parties will need to register as one group to be seated together and the rooftop has tents for rain coverage. Some nights are slated to feature live music and the rooftop is a BYOB situation (Wine Dad’s is just a few doors down).
Hudson Table owner Allen Bari says the rooftop dining component will run throughout September and can potentially be continued into October pending an agreement with Bijou Properties. Those interested can purchase tickets through the company’s website.
