Went to Chloe's in Hudson last night and had a wonderful meal. I grew up in Hudson and now live in Boston, so I was curious to see what a "bistro" in Hudson would be like, considering that The 99 has been the nicest restaurant in town for about 15 years. Happy to report that Chloe's is much better!
I was part of a group of six. Two baskets of bread were brought out immediately, with a wonderful chick-pea, garlicky spread similar to hummus. We had the cod cakes and baked brie appetizers. With six of us, I only got a little taste of each, but the cod cakes were very light with a lot more cod than breading, and the baked brie was GREAT. I also had a caesar salad, and it was just the way I like it--not overly heavy on the dressing so you can actually taste the lettuce.
For dinner I had the potato wrapped cod, which came with sauteed mustard greens and onions. It was fantastic. Very light and perfect portion size. Others had: herb-roasted chicken, monkfish wrapped in bacon, salmon, duck breat and leg confit, and double thick pork chop. Everyone loved their meal, but my companion who got the pork said it was just slightly less tender than she would have hoped.
For dessert, we had pot de creme and pumpkin cheesecake. Not the very best versions I've had of either dessert, but still very good.
There were also a few coffees and a couple glasses of wine. The bill with tax was $164--a steal for what you're getting. Oh, and one of the things I was most impressed by was the service. Polite, helpful, not at all pretentious.
In summary, I'd recommend that if you live in the area, definitely check it out. They seemed pretty busy last night, which was good to see. But it's important to support these small local restaurants, so don't forget Chloe's!
