Working with local farms to showcase the bounty of the Hudson Valley, Merchants Social is the newest restaurant from Chef John DeLucie and partners.
Merchants is the first project for DeLucie in the Hudson Valley. His formidable team includes many who have already left an indelible mark on the expansive food and beverage scene here, including Executive Chef Kevin Rubis; GM/Partner Jaime Donato, formerly of Hudson’s Fish & Game; beverage director Michael Kang and others.
Taking its name with a bit of a nod to the history of this whaling and maritime river town, Merchants Social, is located in a circa-1855 Italianate building. Interior design group Michael Tavano Design has worked with the Merchants’ team to reinvent the restaurant space with bar and lounge, raw bar, open kitchen dining room and a beautiful, expanded backyard patio.
The restaurant’s wine list is curated by Hudson Wine Merchants, with cheeses from noted provisions purveyors Talbott & Arding, drawing in other incredible sources within the Hudson community.
