Our first stop was on Warren Street in the Hudson Historic District where we had lunch at American Glory, which describes itself as:
“American Glory isn’t your typical rib joint or BBQ Roadhouse! We’re a contemporary American Restaurant and Offsite Catering Company located in Hudson NY, in a meticulously restored historic, red brick firehouse, Circa 1794. The old house’s ambiance in red brick and dark wood, accented with Edison lights, black and white photos of American icons, and custom music playlists full of 60s and 70s classics, which all contribute to our industrial, steampunk vibe.
The environment is casual and inviting. Upon entering you will sense the mouthwatering aroma of fresh food and smoked meats, and hear the sound of live music and roaring laughter throughout the restaurant. Voted 2019’s top Restaurant in the Hudson Valley, and Number One Restaurant in Columbia County by Hudson Valley Magazine Readers!
Our specialty is offering the bounty of the American melting pot. Our menu philosophy is simple. Our culinary team reinvents time-tested traditional family recipes brought to the USA by our great grandparents, by using the freshest local produce, meats,poultry, fish. Those old home recipes, reinvented yield incredibly flavorful food which is not only delicious to the mouth, but also appealing to the eye.”
When we arrived at the restaurant was in complete darkness. It seems that the area where it the restaurant is located had suffered a power cut. They were still able to cook, but we had to eat the first part of our meal by candlelight, which in such historic surroundings added interest – quite romantic. Thankfully the power was restored a few minutes later.
