Hudson Grille at DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel & Suites Jersey City Launches New Restaurant Concept
New Culinary Leadership Unveils Localized Menu
JERSEY CITY, N.J. - DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel & Suites Jersey City today announced its on-property restaurant, Hudson Grille, has transformed its restaurant concept under a new culinary direction and leadership. Led by New Jersey native and recipient of the Best Chefs America award, Chef James Weaver, and Philip Jones, manager of Food & Beverage, Hudson Grille features a new localized menu and specialty cocktail assortment.
Hudson Grille boasts a lively yet intimate experience in a warm, rustic venue for guests to unwind and enjoy themselves. The new concept embraces the flavours and culture of the greater Jersey City area with an eclectic spectrum of ingredients sourced from New Jersey farmers and anglers. In fact, the closest food producer to Hudson Grille is “Bucket and Bay” Gelati and Sorbet- just three blocks away, providing fresh and organic sweets. Currently there is upwards of twenty local farmers, producers, breweries and fisheries represented on the menu.
Located in one of the most ethnically diverse cities in America, Hudson Grille has embraced its neighborhood distinctiveness with an exciting menu in a comfortable and casual environment. Viking Village sea scallops with a pignolia nut crust, Evergreen Farms organic black beans turned into a rich black hummus, butternut squash bisque and pumpkin tiramisu are just a few of the offerings that will take the guests’ pallets on a delicious adventure.
"Hudson Grille offers an outstanding new concept in an enjoyable environment to complement our distinguished DoubleTree by Hilton hotel. We’ve been able to truly tie in the multitude of cultures within the community and bring a farm-to-table menu that speaks to each guest,” said Danielle Havey, general manager, DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel & Suites Jersey City.
Leading the kitchen is Chef Weaver, a pioneer of the local food movement who helped develop local distribution within New Jersey. A leading chef in New Jersey for more than thirty years, Chef Weaver founded Slow Food Central New Jersey in 1999 and published “Locavore Adventures: One Chefs Slow Food Journey”. Jones also joins the culinary team as manager of Food & Beverage after serving as the leader in food service at several of the most prestigious hotels in western Florida.
Hudson Grille offers breakfast, lunch and dinner seven days a week with a refreshing happy hour. Whether it is the renowned breakfast buffet or the inclusion of the signature, warm DoubleTree Cookie in craft fare and drink, Hudson Grille is an exciting and inclusive eatery for all.
Hilton Honors members who dine at Hudson Grille for lunch or dinner through January will receive a 500 Hilton Honors point bonus.
