Be careful going to Hudson's on the Bend after dark. I drove all the way out there from Austin, got to the door at 8:30, only to be told "sorry, it's a slow night so we're no longer seating."
I think that 8:30 is too early to close, especially for a supposed national caliber restaurant. even on a Tuesday.
Luckily, we made it back to Peony before they closed. Peony is 5 minutes from my house. They have excellent salty calimari, and I had sizzling duck at the table.
Thanks for wasting an hour of my time, Hudson's. Someday I might come back. Maybe. Maybe not.
