Hudson and Mondrian SoHo Hotels Sprucing Up Food Options

The escalator at the Hudson Hotel
There's about to be a little bit of a foodie shake-up at two of the Morgans Hotel Group's swanky NYC properties. The chain has enlisted Alan Phillips, the proprietor of Co-Op Food and Drink in the Rivington and pop-up restaurant operator to come in and breathe some life into the grub options at these lodgings. The Hudson has been open forever and last year they tried to turn their rooftop lounge into a scene by giving out membership cards - this year rumor has it that they will turn the space into some sort of "beer and burgers" garden which will be accessible to both hotel guests and the public (which is excellent, seeing that it's one of the most beautiful rooftop spaces in town). There's also may be a taco truck somewhere on-site at the hotel and other tweaks will focus on increasing the fun quotient of the hotel's edible options.

The Mondrian SoHo is also going to change things around a bit, but details are scarce about what's going down at that property. We only know that Imperial No. Nine, the glitzy restaurant that was panned after celeb chef Sam Talbot opened it, will be relaunched in the coming months. No word yet on the exact concept, but sources tell us it's going to ditch the seafood-centric menu and lean toward rustic Italian. Stay tuned for news on that one...
