Breaking GO News: The much anticipated official reopening of the completely reimagined, revamped, and stunningly renovated Henrietta Hudson will take place this Saturday, May 15 at 6pm.
Saturday will reveal the first phase of the revamped space, with patrons invited to enjoy both sidewalk seating and seating in the stunning new curbside semi-enclosed parklet. Phases Two and Three, coming soon, will reveal HH’s dazzling and completely renovated interior spaces. While opening weekend will be restricted to the gorgeous outdoor spaces, one of the brand spankin’ new touch free restrooms inside will be available for patrons!
Patrons who wish to make a reservation (recommended) may do so via OpenTable, but walk-in customers will also be accommodated based on availability. Customers are invited to leave their information at the door, and wait for a text once a spot opens up!
