Are You Going To Finish That?

This month in Chronogram I take a look at a diner in Hudson that happens to be the first Animal Welfare Approved restaurant in the country. It’s an excellent model for making rigorously sourced food available to just about anyone.

  • I’d kill a bitch to eat here.

    A local, humanely raised, grass-fed bitch, right?

  • Great article. Wish they were in Pittsburgh….

  • Peter

    Every town should have one.

  • It is run by my wonderful friends at Grazin Angus… I have been in love with their meat for years now, courtesy of Union Square Market in NYC. Still haven’t made it up for a visit but look forward to it!!

    Thanks for the write-up! I am a recent (one year) vegetarian mostly because of issues with factory/industrialized farming. Since, when eating out (including in others’ homes) you basically have no choice regarding how your food is provided, it was easier to just say no entirely. I live somewhat locally and would love to support this restaurant. (And my kids still love a good hamburger- how much better I would feel if it were one of theirs.) Sadly, Chronogram was offered for a very brief time in Albany ( just long enough for me to find it and really like it) and then it was gone. I am really happy to have found your blog, that you are a local boy (I assumed you were from California…), that you are passionate and unapologetic in wanting to eat well, and that you are a painter/artist and paid writer. You are living my dream. Keep it up!!!

Yours Truly

I'm a painter who happens to also spend a lot of time growing, making, and writing about food. I'm particularly interested in the intersection of frugal peasant cooking techniques and haute improvisation. And I have a really great personality.
