Hudson's famous Diamond Street Diner closed back 2009 will now reopen as Grazin' Diner with new owner and local farmer, Dan Gibson. The diner will have a 'farm to table' menu, where local farmers will deliver their goods directly to the restaurant, thus cutting out the middle man.
The theme of the restaurant is similar to a 1950s burger joint, but the beef will be from Dan's farm "Grazin' Angus Acres in Ghent. When asked why the walls are painted white and not a darker color to hide the dirt, Dan explain, "We are not trying to hide the dirt on the white walls, they will be clean as the beef we are giving you."
The beef, pork and eggs will come from Dan's farm and if they run out of something, then they won't have it that day. The potatoes will be from Miller's Crossing Farm in Hudson, the restaurant will also have homemade ice cream, local and organic soda-pop and homemade butter. The 'farm to table' style offers patrons fresh, local and healthy food.
The restaurant is schedule to open October 1, 2011.
