Hudson Opens F&B – Retail Combo At DFW

Hudson has unveiled its combination Decanted and Hudson Nonstop concept at Dallas Fort Worth International Airport (DFW) in what it calls “an entirely new era of retail and dining convenience for travelers.” The Hudson Nonstop, which adjoins Decanted, is powered by Amazon’s Just Walk Out technology and Amazon One.

Spanning more than 1,600 square feet in Terminal B, the brand-new space brings together Hudson’s first-ever wine bar and its travel essentials store, which uses Amazon’s checkout-free technology and palm recognition service, into one convenient walkthrough location.

“From the food to the overall experience, our new Decanted and Hudson Nonstop concept allows travelers to shop and eat the way they want to,” said Evan Schut, senior vice president of food and beverage for Hudson. “With this milestone new opening, we further establish Hudson as a driver of the latest in dining innovation while continuing to deliver the widest variety of offerings, all in one place.”

Decanted offers a chic and inviting setting, trimmed with modern finishes throughout and complete with 25 seats for an intimate ambiance to enjoy breakfast, lunch, dinner, or tapas. The menu takes an elevated approach to traditional wine bar cuisine, anchored by an expansive drink menu.

Travelers will have their choice of shareables perfect for pairing like artisanal charcuterie boards and bruschettas, as well as hand-made flatbreads, soups, salads, and desserts. Breakfast items include an egg, sausage, and cheese croissant, overnight oats, and an Applewood bacon and egg flatbread. To sip and savor, a wine list of bold reds and crisp and tangy whites joins a curated selection of hand-shaken cocktails and other alcoholic beverages. Wine connoisseurs will appreciate the extensive global selection, along with Texas’ own McPherson Cellars and Pedernales Cellars. Local beers on tap feature Rahr & Sons Brewing Company IPA and Shiner Bock from Spoetzl Brewery, with themed cocktails stirred up with local spirits including Deep Eddy Vodka and Ranger Creek Bourbon.

The Hudson Nonstop can be accessed either from the adjoining Decanted or directly from the terminal concourse.  travelers have the option to swipe their credit card or hover their palm using Amazon One, a fast, convenient, contactless way for people to use their palm to enter, identify, and pay. Inside, Hudson Nonstop is stocked with a wide selection of everyday travel essentials.

“DFW Airport’s focus on a smooth customer experience continues with the addition of innovative technologies,” said Ken Buchanan, executive vice president, revenue management and customer experience at DFW airport. “We understand the convenience our customers want when they are in our terminals, and it is our mission to help them travel as seamlessly as possible through DFW Airport.”
