Although HENRI is relatively new if you consider that it was established only at the start of 2022, it comes from the same folks behind Bread & Hearth and SOURDOUGH factory. Having just discovered the restaurant for the first time, I had high hopes for HENRI’s bread, although I did not bear any prior expectations for the food and ambience otherwise. I was not disappointed at all.

On top of the excellent country-style bread, I was pleasantly surprised by the coziness and authenticity of the interior design, which made me feel like I was in a warm and friendly Parisian bistro. As it turned out, one can enjoy an authentic French meal here without having to make that 13-hour flight to France. HENRI’s sommelier can also recommend a wine-pairing from the bistro’s 50-label collection, rounding up your French dining experience…
