HELSINKI HUDSON, HUDSON, NY

I love when people can gather for great food and drinks, in a place that’s welcoming and exciting…” You’ll find Austin behind the bar at Helsinki at least one night a week. – “I love being able to stop at the farms on my way in and grab berries that literally just came from the field, or pull fresh herbs from our courtyard garden and see what I can come up with to surprise my guests. I want them to come back and be excited to see me behind the bar.”
