Hudson Taco is the latest addition to Newburgh, NY's riverfront dining scene. Located in the West Shore Train Station’s great hall, originally designed by Warren and Wetmore Architects [also famous for their design of Grand Central Station], the project designer, Amy Granieri was inspired by the discovery of original terra cotta bricks which were found on all the walls after layers of sheet rock and years of paint were stripped off. This became the backdrop and starting point of the design.
The open and airy space was brought back to an approachable human scale through the use of faux wooden trusses, over scaled iron lighting, candle-lit breeze block walls and upholstered bench seating. The large windows facing the river were removed and opened up to add a glass-enclosed patio overlooking the mountains and Hudson River. Since opening, Hudson Taco’s inventive menu has been the talk of the town.
