“Try the Chianti,” an elderly British man in leather pants may whisper congenially from the next table. Regulars and neighborliness are the bread and butter of the Hudson Corner Cafe, an affordable eatery surrounded by flashier options. The crowd leans toward gay men and undergrads, or couples on a budget; the menu leans to Italian, with a full array of pizzas and pastas, but also homey fare like turkey burgers and mashed potatoes. There are even a few more ambitious entrees such as the sesame crusted salmon. As to the room, it’s big just like the portions. And even at these prices, details aren’t overlooked: Nicoise salad comes studded with tiny saffron potatoes, as advertised; chicken is moist; apple brown betty is crumbly with cinnamon and powdered sugar. The meatloaf is popular—at least according to Mr. British Leatherpants—and with the panache to pull that outfit off, he must know what he’s talking about.

Prix Fixe

The prix fixe—for which you’ll get an appetizer, an entree and a dessert, all normal-sized—is an out-and-out steal. Consider it tonight’s dinner and tomorrow’s lunch.

Recommended Dishes

Seared tuna nicoise salad, $12.95; herb-crusted chicken, $12.95; apple brown betty, $4.50.
