[See my review of April of this year.] We came to GT on a chilly April evening, right after the place had opened. Loved the space and the food was great. Well - isn't the food always good at a new place? How are things once the restaurant has really had some time to settle? Fortunately for us the answer is "just as good". Tonight we had another fantastic dinner (hummus to share (asked for extra pita - "no problem"), one of us had the Burger, the other had the Chicken Sandwich. Both were terrific - fries were crispy and hot, burger cooked perfect to order and the chicken was crunchy (and not one of those awful patties but real fried chicken breast!) and the slaw was seasoned perfectly. Fancy? Nah. Sometimes good food can be simple as long as it is prepared well and served with a smile - and our server Richard was great: friendly and right there when we needed him (he works on Tuesday and Thursday, just FYI) - ask for him! My last comment, and I think it is the most relevant, is about the decor: There is a mural (see photo) on the back wall of Warren Street (Hudson's main drag) taken a long time ago when the roads were still dirt and horse drawn carriages were the mode of transport. The mural pays homage to Hudson's humble past, as does the entire interior of Governor's Tavern and it is a refreshing change to all the "hip", wanna-be places that have popped up and led to the city being dubbed "Brooklyn North". If you wanna get a feel for what Hudson is really all about then head to GT, grab a great local brew, a burger and just enjoy yourself. We did.
