Two New Hudson Restaurants to Feature Culinary Couple

Hudson, OH – Long time Cleveland-area restaurateurs Shawn and Tiffany Monday and Michael Schwartz are opening two new restaurants, One Red Door and Flip Side, both in Hudson’s First and Main development.

One Red Door will feature chef-driven comfort food with the quality of fine dining but at a middle-market price point. Shawn says his menu “will be more accessible to the day-to-day diner” than what he’s done in the past. Tiffany will oversee the bar and promises fresh-made cocktails and an affordable wine list with both old- and new-world wines. “I want to introduce people to incredible, yet reasonably priced wines that they can enjoy every day instead of just on special occasions.”

The Flip Side will feature gourmet all-natural beef burgers with chef-crafted condiments, toppings and sides such as fresh-cut fries. For the non-burger lover, gourmet free-range organic chicken breast sandwiches and market fresh salads will be an option. Flip Side’s bar will feature a variety of craft beer on tap.

The Mondays have made a name for themselves at a number of fine-dining restaurants in Northeast Ohio. They worked together at Hudson’s The Inn at Turner’s Mill and then Three Birds in Lakewood before settling back in Hudson seven years ago to partner in Downtown 140.

“We’re thankful for all our opportunities over the years,” Shawn says. “We’ve exceeded what we set out to do, but now we’re ready to focus our creative energy in a new direction.” Tiffany agrees. “We’ve done fine dining our whole life but now we see One Red Door as an opportunity to serve our clients and new patrons in a different way. We want to create a menu and atmosphere that bring you back week after week. ”

The Mondays will be partnering with Michael Schwartz. Schwartz, a former CPA with Price Waterhouse and current CFO & principal of Liquid Living, has been in the restaurant and entertainment industry for 12 years. Schwartz has been responsible for the design and management of 19 different facilities in Northeast Ohio and Atlanta Georgia. “Wow, am I excited,” Schwartz says. “I have been blessed during my career to be involved with the development of the Warehouse District and Midtown in Atlanta, but I don’t remember being this excited in a long time. Shawn and Tiffany are special talents and I am certain our combination of skills will provide a superior experience for our customers.”

One Red Door is scheduled to open in September of this year. Flip Side will open soon thereafter. Additional details are available at the web sites OneRedDoorHudson.com and FlipSideHudson.com.
