After an extensive renovation, the longtime and recently renovated Hudson’s on the Bend is now closed. Its last day of service was Valentine’s Day on February 14. The reason? It was because of “challenges that could not be overcome,” according to a press release, but nothing further was added.
Hudson’s, or the restaurant formerly known as, was owned by Prime Thyme Restaurant Group, which consisted of new owners Billy Caruso (who was the chef) and advanced sommelier Chris McFall. The group bought the restaurant from its founder Jeff Blank in March 2016. The sale also included the Mighty Cone food trucks.
The shutter doesn’t affect Mighty Cone. Prime Thyme is still going to make use of the space on Ranch Road 620, teasing that one of the Mighty Cone trucks will open at the address.
Blank opened Hudson's in 1984. Caruso was the executive chef of III Forks in Chicago, was a former partner at 24 Diner and Easy Tiger, as well as a sommelier at Paggi House. McFall worked at Houston's Pappas Bros. Steakhouse, Lamberts Downtown Barbecue, Paggi House, and Sullivan's Steakhouse.
