Hudson's on the Bend

Jeff Blank and his kitchen crew like to joke that other cooks must suffer from a "fear of cooking." That's because, for the award-winning chef, cooking is a kind of alchemy—an ambitious experiment that is sometimes fated to fail. But when it works, Jeff and his Executive Chef Kelly Casey transform fresh ingredients, often plucked from local farms and ranches, into piquant dishes adorned with housemade sauces, such as tomatillo white chocolate, mango jalapeño, and bourbon vanilla praline. Behind the kitchen, a stone smokehouse infuses ostrich, rattlesnake, and venison meats with dusky notes, creating entrees that have won them recognition for the Best Wild Game Dish from readers of the Austin Chronicle.

Diners take in the gustatory array on a patio and in a garden gazebo, surrounded by vegetable plants, flowers, and trees wrapped in petite nodes of light. Even the rustic, upscale decor—characterized by soft candlelight, red tablecloths, and vibrant paintings along exposed-stone walls—has earned acclaim, finding favorable mention in the New York Times' travel guide.

    “Hudson's on the Bend is easily one of the best restaurants in all of Austin! It is very expensive but is worth every penny for a high-end meal. Everyone at the table should order something different and all share to get a really good idea of the menu. I would never order take out food from this place because the whole experience of a great restaurant is also in the atmosphere AND this place is great on that with a beautiful outdoor lawn/garden and a top notch outdoor bar area. I will always buy this Group On when it pops up!”
