Every time I pull up to The Henry, it’s jam packed and rightly so. This seems to be the hip new place to hang out for coffee, grab a quick bite to eat, do some work on the tablet or have a few drinks. It does have to live up the title that it’s “The Greatest Neighborhood Restaurant” and when you walk inside, you’ll know why they labeled it as such. The interior is perfectly put together so that you think you really are in your own living room or at your own home. It’s supposed to feel like an extension to your own space and they did a great job making it feel just like that.
For myself, The Henry is the place to grab coffee and breakfast while I do some work. However, when friends were in town last weekend, I couldn’t wait to show off this spot to them and we headed over for lunch. We started with the white truffle Parmesan fries with spicy ketchup and creamy truffle aioli, they were fresh and hard to stop eating. For the table we got the Roasted Brussels Sprout Salad, Original Chinese Chicken Salad and the Kale and Apple Salad. Clearly ladies were lunching healthily.
In all honesty, the food was good but we had expected that the Roasted Brussels Sprout salad would be full of shaved Brussels sprouts and not just a few halved into the salad. When you list it as a Brussels Sprout salad, I think people assume it’s more Brussels than romaine but that’s only my opinion and I’m a Brussels Sprout lover, I eat them every week. The Kale and Apple was well done but the Original Chinese Chicken salad was my favorite. My friends were put off by the strong ginger flavor but I love ginger, the stronger the better.
So head on down to the Greatest Neighborhood Restaurant and see exactly why the place is always packed. By the way, did you see that the Fabulous Mr. Fox is opening up Flower Child this month? It’s going to be a “food revolution” and I can’t wait to try it out. I’ll keep you posted on when you’ll see some healthy fast food enter the neighborhood.
