Henry's Hunan in the Excelsior Open for Thanksgiving (San Francisco)

Melanie Wong | Nov 27, 201404:30 PM     2

In case anyone is still looking for a place to eat turkey today, Henry's Hunan in the Excelsior District will be open. All other branches will be closed for Thanksgiving. Turkey, ham and traditional fixings will be served in the bar lounge and regular menu in the restaurant. Grandpa Henry Chung, the 96-year-old founder, and his extended family will be celebrating the holiday here.

This week I had dinner at the Excelsior location for the first time. We were taken care of by owner Eddie Zhu, and I can't think of a more hospitable restaurateur.

Hearing the happy sounds coming out of the adjoining bar, I asked Eddie if he inherited the bar regulars from the Granada Cafe, the long-time previous occupant of this venue. He laughed and said, "Yes!" Then I asked what he planned to do to put his own mark on the venerable restaurant group founded by his grandfather, he said that in his first weeks in the Excelsior, he fell in love with the neighborhood's family values and created deeper ties to community. He said that some new dishes for the menu are being tested. And there's a bar snack menu here that he's looking to expand.
