Dinner Diaries: The Henry

The Henry is nestled on LA’s poshest boulevard: Robertson. The decor, like it’s food are to die for. Here are our top food picks for The Henry.

The Henry is a beautiful restaurant which greets you with it’s wood and denim aesthetic. Classy and practical, (we want the blue leather bar stools for our home). But enough about the decor, we’re here to give you all the details on their food.

Settle in and grab yourself an ‘Almost Naked Margarita’. Made fresh with Casa Amigo’s Tequila, lime, cointreau, passoa liquer, and bar spoon honey. It’s both refreshing and just the right amount of salty to sweet, for a perfect freshly made margarita. If you’re a gin lover like we are, we suggest their ‘Wake the Angels’. The drink is made with Hendricks gin, rose petal, grapefruit, yuzu, and sparkling wine.

Our next order of business was settling in for conversation while enjoying their delectable appetizers. We choose their Spring Vegetables Crudités, which are served fresh with a whipped tahini sauce we fell in love with. Our favorite appetizer was an incredible indulgence their Black Truffle Cheese Fondue. We literally died and came back after enjoying the flavorful combination of cheeses and black truffle in this perfect fondue. It’s served alongside warm pretzel bites. Mmmmmmmm. To be adventurous we ordered their smoked Norwegian Salmon as well. Normally, we wouldn’t think Salmon and appetizer, but trust us, this was like the next level of high end bagel & lox…. we were obsessed. Definitely give it a try if you are a seafood lover. The salmon is sliced to thin perfection over just the right amount of cream cheese and a hash brown toast. Trust us, try it.

Moving onto dinner we tried their seared Ahi Tuna. It was the perfect amount of tuna steak in a bed of asian fusion which reminded us of Thai flavorings, amongst jasmine rice, and it was just divine. Meat lovers should definitely keep an eye out for their pea and short rib ravioli. The ravioli are filled with pea and cheese stuffing, while the short rib is served outside with s horseradish crema.

The true trifecta of this restaurant is their dessert. We ordered a Cleo to drink from their espresso menu and the bread pudding. Whatever you, whatever you decide to try…you simply MUST have the bread pudding. It was to die for. We would Door Dash just the bread pudding to the office if we could. We might also end up needing a wheel barrel to get around..but you know: it’s just that good.
