Swoon Kitchenbar - Hudson, New York

Rural Intelligence FoodIs there another restaurant in Columbia County as New Yorky (in a good way) as this smashing place? Swoon Kitchenbar owner-chef Jeffrey Gimmel, a former top toque at Michael’s, and his partner in all things, Nina Bachinsky-Gimmel, once a pastry chef at the Union Square Café, met while studying cheese making at The Old Chatham Sheepherding Co. All that training shows in the work: three cheese plates to choose from, all served with lavash crackers and apricot chutney, and local cheese selections like Green Mountain Blue from VT and Berkshire Bloom from Williamstown, MA ($13.95); an entré of poached gulf shrimp with bottarga aioli and horseradish vinaigrette ($15.95). And for the culinarily cautious, there’s always the skirt steak with mashed ($27.95).
