If you'd like to visit Hudson, New York, and you aren't sure where to go for some really great dining and some excellent drinks, refer to this list of the latest and greatest establishments in the 12534 zip.

Mexican Radio has really captured our attention recently, mostly because of that amazing selection of hot sauces! If you're not as big of a hot sauce aficionado as we are, then you can focus your attention on those incredible entrees, appetizers, and drinks, such as the ground beef with mole sauce (too delicious for words), the radio nachos (small portion but big flavor), and the X Files margarita (refreshing and unique!). They've also got a delicious array of soups here that we can never resist, and if you're a lover of fish tacos like we are, you will definitely want to try theirs. They're loaded with tasty chopped cabbage and cilantro, which is the perfect complement to the fish. Great beans and rice here too. Very highly recommended!

Swoon Kitchenbar gets the award for the coolest name on our list, and we also happen to think it's one of the coolest dining establishments on this list, hands down. The menu changes constantly since it's based on locally sourced ingredients, so we won't bother to give you the details on dishes that may not still be there when you visit. Instead we'll just tell you that everything is always superbly fresh and flavorful, and the service is always top notch. They've got a lot of options for meat eaters and vegetarians alike, and so many different flavors for everybody to just dive into. Great wine list too! If you love your reds and whites, you'll be very pleased with everything that they offer here. Don't miss it.

Earth Foods gets one of our top recommendations too, because we love family run restaurants with a heavy focus on fresh locally sourced ingredients. If you love natural foods and are looking for a healthier place to dine, then you owe it to yourself to check this place out. We've had delicious tabouli here, and the fresh juices are always a very nice complement to anything that you order for your entree or appetizer. You can create your own perfect mix of veggies and fruits or just order something straight off the menu. The curried apple rice salad is another one of our favorite dishes here, it really stands out in our minds because of that awesome flavor. Everything is just fantastic here. Very highly recommended.

Red Dot Bar & Restaurant is one of the more upscale locations on this list, and we think it's the best option for more intimate occasions like dates or nights out when you really want to have a good conversation with friends and not have to chat over the loud din of boisterous customers or booming music. The service is excellent here, and they have a wide array of delicious appetizers and entrees that will please just about anyone. The hommous and the baba ghannouj are essentials here, and they have fabulous soups too that change on a regular basis. Wonderful mussels and calamari here too for the seafood lovers! When the weather is good, be sure and take advantage of that wonderful outdoor seating area too!

Baba Louie's is a wonderful local pizzeria that everybody in Hudson just loves. They have a truly wonderful waitstaff here who is always superbly friendly whether you're new to the area or a longstanding loyal customer. We recommend the salads just as highly as we do the pizzas, especially the one that has roasted red peppers and feta cheese! You can craft your own pizzas from their incredible list of toppings, and we'd very highly recommend going unusual, such as topping your pizza with proscuitto, or those incredible roasted potatoes! No need to get bored with pizza when there are as many options as they offer here. People go crazy over this place and for good reason. Don't miss it!

PM Wine Bar... just hearing the name makes us want to head right out and enjoy a night sipping wine and enjoying ourselves in that comfy atmosphere. This is the best place in all of Hudson for delicious tapas. They often have live music of the folk variety, which is a perfect complement to your wine and tapas. That candlelit ambiance is just perfect for romantic dates too! It's true that the place can be a bit too small for its own good, and because of that you may find yourself having to wait for a table. We try to arrive early when we can to avoid that problem, but sometimes it can't be helped. You can't keep a place like this a secret for too long, and that's why it's always packed! We love it and we're sure you will too.

Ca'mea is one of the pricier restaurants and bars on this list, but we had to include it because it is worth every single penny. The pasta is really in a league of its own... try the blackened linguine if you're really in the mood for something unique and delicious! If you're a martini fan, you'll want to kick back at the bar and enjoy some of their fabulous martinis--they really are very noteworthy and our favorite has got to be the cosmopolitan. For dessert you'll want to share the tiramisu with your date, it is really the very best that we have ever tasted, and that's saying a lot because we've had some phenomenal tiramisu in our day! Everything is high class and expertly done here. You won't want to miss this one.

Da Ba is the kind of bar and restaurant that makes us wish we lived closer to Hudson! We don't get to visit often enough, but when we do, this place is tops on our list. We especially enjoy the appetizers and desserts here, making the perfect sandwich of flavors with those awesome entrees in between! They put an incredible amount of talent and skill into the presentation of the food here, and that's part of why we enjoy it so much. Try the elk appetizer with beets, that's one of our favorites. The Arctic char dinner is also out of this world. Oh, and how about that lobster ravioli?  Very cheesy and packed with flavor. We love the Scandanavian slant to the menu here, and we think you will too.

Wasabi Japanese Restaurant has become a real tradition any time we are in the Hudson area, because they've got some of the very best sushi and sashimi around. The salmon teriyaki is one of our favorite dishes, and everyone that we know loves it too. They have really superb service here, much more attentive than at any other sushi restaurant we have been to in the area, so you're never left with a cold cup of green tea that needs to be refilled, or wondering where that waiter went so you can order another slice of your favorite sashimi. We really enjoy the oshinko and agedashi tofu appetizer here as well, and you will certainly want to try the natto roll. Everything is simply out of this world!

Verdigris Tea Cafe & Bakery is a real haven for someone who enjoys all the delights of the coffee and tea variety! That's what we always come in for--the drinks. But then we stay for the delicious food. They've got a huge array of sandwiches and salads that are perfect for a quick lunch during the hard working day, or for a weekend brunch with a good friend. After we've dined and had our fill of their irresistible coffee and tea, we love to browse their gift shop which has all the teas and coffees that you'll want to bring home with you! It's truly a very special event any time that you stop in here, and that's why it gets one of our highest recommendations for any cafe in Hudson! You'll love it too.
