BEFORE: Inn at Turner's Mill
Built in 1852, the Inn at Turner's Mill reflected the building's rich history, with homey fireplaces, rustic walls, antiques and traditional American fare. Before closing in 2007, it was a go-to spot for formal events, entertaining clients and romantic dinners, with a more lively downstairs tavern.
AFTER: Rosewood Grill
"We built on that second personality [the tavern] had," says George Schindler of Hospitality Restaurants, which opened Rosewood Grill on the Inn's ground floor in January 2010. "To the people in Hudson, what the tavern represented was the type of atmosphere we had in mind." A renovation expanded the tavern's size, adding sleek leather seating and polished woods to the existing space and rustic rough-hewn tables and unpolished granite counters to the new space. "We made the new space look as lived-in as possible," says Schindler, "and the old space look as polished as a 157-year-old building can be."
