Pasta by Hudson

Brandon Fay’s talent in creating exciting new dining experiences probably began back in his childhood, when his grandmother added spaghetti and meatballs to their Passover meals! Not exactly traditional, but after more than 20 years in the New York City restaurant world, he admits he has never tasted a meatball that could beat those his grandmother made.

Watching the CBS segment, “Cooking with Brandon,” and experiencing his exuberant personality and striking red glasses, it is not surprising to learn that he studied acting at the Lee Strasberg Theater and Film Institute. However, in 2001 he joined the Fireman Hospitality Group and rose from Maitre D’ to Managing Director of The Trattoria Dell Arte, helping to propel the restaurant into a successful and iconic Italian restaurant. The Trattoria is located directly across the street from Carnegie Hall. During his 20 years at the establishment Fay catered events for many famous celebrities, including one 4 AM “emergency” food run for a well-known pop star, who shall remain nameless!

In 2018, Fay opened Pasta by Hudson (named after his daughter) in the Turnstyle Underground Market, at the 8th busiest transit hub in NYC. Located beneath 8th Avenue, Pasta by Hudson provides what Fay calls farm-fresh, high quality Italian food at a fast-casual pace. Everything offered at Pasta by Hudson is made daily and the freshly-made pasta can also be purchased by the pound. Entrees are prepared in front of the customers and are available for immediate consumption or for takeout. Fay uses only eco-friendly disposable to-go containers and utensils. Pasta by Hudson is available to cater for lunch, dinner and late night events and will help create the perfect setting for a variety of corporate & social events.

When Fay isn’t busy doing his cooking show, traveling to Italy to gain greater understanding of the Italian food culture, or running his newest culinary adventure, he likes to do something different—cooking for his wife and daughter at home!
