A new casual place in Piermont that suits a pop-in for drinks and apps at the bar or an evening in the dining room
A sleek New American bistro has opened in the former Harbour House space in Piermont: 14 & Hudson.
"We're going for a cool, relaxed neighborhood restaurant," says co-owner Paula Clemente Woods. "It's a nice, casual, inviting place, whether you're coming for a drink at the bar, an appetizer, or you want to come sit in the dining room; it's welcoming."
LOVE trying new restaurants as much as we do?! Reviews are in on the FAB new place to dine @14andhudson #Piermont.
"They had us at Smashing Sangria.
Our expectations for recently opened 14 & Hudson Kitchen and Bar were high from the get-go. After all, it had all the ingredients of a hot new resto: a CIA-trained chef who earned his stripes at Manhattan’s Blue Fin restaurant, a prime Piermont location, and a luscious interior boasting cozy banquette seating. Then, of course, there was that aforementioned sangria, which, we were told, would be some of the best to ever pass our lips. While we’re not quite ready to crown it the best (is there really a bad sangria?), it definitely lived up to its name—subtly sweet, with just the right amount of muddled fruit at the bottom."

Piermont just may have become the restaurant capital of Rockland. Adding to the already excellent list of restaurants there—Xaviars, Freelance, o lar, Sidewalk Bistro, just to name a few—is the new 14 and Hudson.
At the south end of town, where the Harbor House used to be, this is the best gastropub I’ve been to in quite a while. The chef, Eric Woods, keeps things simple but tasty, and the setting is casual but fancy enough to feel like a night out. (The fresh flowers are such a nice touch.)
Husband and wife team (and Harrington Park residents) Chef Eric Woods and Paula Clemente Woods opened 14 & Hudson this past May. Chef Woods, who’s been executive chef at Blue Fin (W Hotel NYC) since 2005, has crafted a menu of New American bistro dishes with a few “twists.”
Paula will be running the front of house operations, using her experience at some of NYC’s finest restaurants like Jean Georges, Gotham Bar, and Grill and Icon. She explained that they are “committed to food and hospitality,” which is at “the core of everything” they plan to do.
