Chez Henri - Celery jello (!) and Green Points

First visit to Chez Henri last night - wonderful food enjoyed by all six in our party - I had the three smoked fish appetizer special, which was most fascinating because one of the varieties came with several squares of light green, celery-flavored jello!!!! Simply fascinating...

My entree was also fantastic - snapper with a cilantro-based sauce that basically had me licking the plate...

Also, in my search for a drink appreciation richer and beyond bourbon on the rocks, I asked that the bartender surprise me with a whiskey cocktail, not a Manhattan. Apparently, the bartenders were hanging out in NYC a couple of weeks ago showing off their mad skillz, and the hit of the party was the newly christened Green Point -

Rye whiskey, sweet vermouth, bitters and chartreuse - strong like a Manhattan but the extras give a couple of pointed jabs to the ribs...

Got one garnished with an orange and one with a cherry - the orange I think uplifted the drink - the cherry too dark, sweet and muddled...

Try one soon at your local Chez.
