Hudson Valley Food Hall Does Local Eats With Global Flavor in Beacon

Beacon's Hudson Valley Food Hall tempts with creative cocktails, delicious barbecue, and authentic Mexican street food.

The first of its kind in Beacon and the region, the Hudson Valley Food Hall opened its doors just a few years ago. Since then, the space has been booming with culinary excellence at each of its several eateries. The Food Hall is the one destination on Main Street where you can find delicious food from all over the world, from Mexican street food to Indian and Middle Eastern fusion. The unique dining experience is constantly evolving, thanks to new restaurants joining the mix and special offerings on the menus.

The 4,500-square-foot space used to house The Roosevelt Theater and dates back to the 1920s. It seats about 80, with additional outdoor seating available during the warm-weather months.

Here are some of the unique vendors who call Hudson Valley Food Hall home.

If you have a hankering for Latin cuisine, El Nica is the place to go for Nicaraguan dishes galore. Main course like carne asada, ropa vieja, and arroz con pollo offer a filling taste of Latin America, while the Nica platter for two has everything you need to try if you’re first-time enjoyer. Deep-fried tacos and sweet plantains are the perfect side dishes or appetizers, and rice pudding and churros finish off the meal.

If you’re in search of traditional British dishes in the Hudson Valley, Moreish is your one-stop-shop. Chef Michael Johnson, who was born and raised in the British countryside, brought his passion for cooking to the region with the tastes of England. The menu is a true reflection of British culinary tradition, featuring classics like a full English breakfast (which can be made vegetarian or vegan), bangers and mash, pie of the day, Cornish pasty, and sausage rolls. On the sweet side, the spot serves banoffee pie, crumpets and jam, Bakewell tarts, and sticky oaty flapjacks. In the coming months, new menu items like sticky toffee pudding and fish and chip Fridays will make their Moreish debut.

Finally—you can now find a cup of artisanal coffee between Eliza and Cross streets. (It was a real no man’s land for java lovers.) Owner Vic Alam—who hails from the historic capital city Dhaka in Bangladesh—is pouring espresso drinks like americanos, cappuccinos, macchiatos, and mochas. Definitely try the latter, as Alam sources some fantastic chocolate for the drink. Also available are specials such as Nutella or oat vanilla lattes, and hot chocolate with candy cane garnish. BTW: the shop is cash only.
