Project DescriptionCathy Hayes and her team of architects and interior designers have this remarkable talent to create a deep-rootedness in restaurant designs that, although brand new, feel like legacy, local favorites from the very start. The hayes’ team commitment to approaching each project with their focused imagination "to bring out the best" has once again delivered unparalleled results in the refresh of the restaurant at the top of the Hillside Shopping Center in Sedona, Arizona. Long time Sedona restaurateur, Mark Shugrue, approached Catherine Hayes to develop a new design concept for their neighborhood restaurant with “a fun, inviting, family-friendly atmosphere”. The team met the challenge of refreshing the tired and cramped space, formerly known as Shugrue’s Hillside Grill.
Newly named THE HUDSON, the hayes' design removed all of the interior walls, created a large welcoming bar for drinking and dining and introduced roomy booths around the perimeter of the dining room, submersing each guest in glorious views. Hayes’ characteristically signature design move creates multiple intriguing areas in each of their restaurant designs, hoping to encourage frequent visits from the neighbors and tourists alike. Guests looking to engage with one of best views in Sedona now have many outdoor seating options – by the fire, quiet seating along the edge, or at the community table for larger parties. Plastering the walls deep blue and brown colors from the natural rock shadows intensifies the natural colors of sun, sky and stone. Featuring a rich color palette, casual vibe, fantastic patio with the breathtaking views, and really great food and service, THE HUDSON is a lunch and dinner destination for families, friends, couples; business or pleasure.
