The Food exhibition will be open late for viewing.

About Hudson Smokehouse:
The first BBQ Smokehouse of its kind in The Bronx, Hudson Smokehouse opened its doors at the beginning of March 2020 only to have the pandemic shut its dining room down two week later. That did not stop owner Kenneth McPartlan and his team, who continued on with takeout and delivery orders and have kept the place running ever since then. Hudson Smokehouse is also proud to have brought 300 meals a day to World Central Kitchen during the pandemic for those in need.
