Hudson Closing Sept. 29th, Will be Replaced by an Italian Bistro, Teddy & The Bully Bar set to open in early 2013

2030 M Street, NW

From a press release:

It’s with bittersweet regret that we announce the closing of Hudson Restaurant & Lounge on September 29, 2012. There will have a finale party on Friday, September 28 from 11am until 2am featuring some of the menu’s favorites, cocktails and entertainment by Adrian Loving and Friends.

Owner Alan Popovsky look’s to the future as new and exciting changes are ahead as he prepares for new Presidential concepts, following the lead of LINCOLN Restaurant. Construction is about to begin on Teddy & The Bully Bar and scheduled to open in early 2013 and the anticipation is palpable. The official banner went up today (photo attached below). Paying homage to our first President of the 20th Century, the restaurant will feature a thoughtful design from local artist Maggie O’Neill and an outstanding small plate concept from a not yet named Executive Chef.

The new location is situated in the heart of the downtown business and entertainment district at 1200 19th Street, NW. The location was formerly the long standing restaurant Sam and Harry’s.

The Washington Post’s Tom Sietsema writes that Hudson will become an Italian bistro:

The owner of Fujimar and Barcode is taking over the soon-to-close Hudson in the West End and giving the corner address a fresh identity. Tentatively called The Greenhouse Bistro, the future 180-seat restaurant will merge an Italian bistro with an enclosed herb garden, says restaurateur Masoud Aboughaddareh.
