Henri’s is located in the shopping center I like to call the culinary trifecta. You can start your afternoon eating a late lunch at Henri’s. Then walk across the parking lot to Lick for ice cream. Then back to Henri’s to sip wine and learn about cheese that they offer in their cheese case, or order a charcuterie plate. Then you can head over to Barley Swine at 5:40 to be assured of a table when they open their doors at 6:00 p.m. (yes, that really is the best way to get a table there). Unfortunately, Gina and I didn’t have that kind of time, so we opted for a quick lunch at Henri’s. We agreed the standout sandwich of the two we tried was the parrano grilled cheese on sourdough with caramelized onion and roasted tomatoes. The sweetness of the caramelized onions, the grilled, crusty bread and the creamy, nutty quality of the melted parrano made every bite satisfying. On a side note, we noticed the owners of Lick were eating lunch two tables away, so we were in good company. (Cathy)
The love of food and how it can bring people together led to the creation of this blog. As a mother of two grown boys, who have left the nest and occasionally return, I noticed a common occurrence-- there is usually someone at home who is hungry.
