A blog about Hudson, New York

Yum Again

A couple of months ago, architect Michael Davis went before the Hudson Planning Commission to get approval for his plan to bring a cosmopolitan variety of food truck vendors and a beer/wine garden into the lot adjoining his antiques shop, 3FortySeven (347 Warren Street). The commission asked him to present more detailed renderings, which will be reviewed by the committee in a meeting next week at City Hall (April 11 at 7 p.m.). 3FortySeven manager Giovanni di Mola posted the first of these on Facebook a few days ago, and they look, to this hungry observer, good enough to eat. (In more detailed drawings to come, di Mola says, the south side will not be overtaken by a forest.)  “We need everyone’s support to get the blessing we need to build our outdoor space and have Tortillaville, Yum Yum Noodle, Truck Pizza, and Taste of India, plus one other (still interviewing) set up shop.”  And the sooner the better, I say.  — Scott Baldinger

  1. Yum indeed. The Planning Commission meeting on Wednesday, April 11 in City Hall is actually a public hearing on Michael Davis’s application, followed by the Commission’s meeting. People can get up and speak at the public hearing, and I hope all we hungry people will speak up in support of this unique idea. I mostly look forward to welcoming Tortillaville, the food vendor that started it all, back to its usual spot. –Ellen

  2. That sure is a lovely illustration, and Tortillaville is very excited to be returning to such a place (we hope). Good affordable food is good for everyone, especially more positive word for the city of Hudson. Our book, Food Truck 101: A Recipe For Success will be released this Sumer too, using Hudson folk as principle players, and the City itself as a wonderful backdrop. Lot’s of photos included. Having said that, and this is just rumor, but Tortillaville (at 347 Warren) might be available for purchase by seasons end. A better investment would be hard to find (for those wanting to live and work Upstate). But, enough about that for now. We’re roughing it out in the FL Keys until Mid May, with plans to open May 25. See you then.
