Allen was born in Jersey City, raised in West Orange and educated in New Brunswick. He’s been a Hoboken resident for over a decade.

But don’t let his modest Jersey roots fool you; he spent the past ten years traveling the world as a professional poker player, a career that culminated with a World Series of Poker bracelet and an experience that ignited his interest in food.

As someone who’s always followed his passion – he left a career on Wall Street to pursue poker – Allen acted on his latest entrepreneurial instinct by enrolling in the French Culinary Institute and founding Hudson Table to address a void in the market. He hopes to build a business that educates people on all things food while serving as an alternative form of recreation in a thriving community of young professionals and growing families.

Owner/Social Media Manager


Allison helps oversee day-to-day operations of the space, whether it’s hosting an event or class, snapping photos for our social media pages, or helping with the overall decor of the space. With her eye for detail and keeping the staff and patrons smiling, she has her hand in a little bit of everything at Hudson Table.

Always having a passion for cooking, and food, she and her husband, owner Allen, took numerous cooking classes prompting her to urge him with the idea to open Hudson Table in Hoboken.
Originally from West Orange, now a Hoboken resident for 6 years, she balances her time between a career in hair styling and helping to building the brand of Hudson Table.
