Henry's in Pottstown

phdfoodie | Sep 24, 201005:22 AM    

After a school meeting last night, we decided to go to Henry's for a quick bite of dinner - it is one of our standby places, and we brought along a couple of friends. When we got there, Frank, the chef, was in the parking lot, having closed early. He said he would open up and cook us dinner if we wanted, and sincerely encouraged us to come in.

So we had our own private "chef's table". We had the Salade Vert - a green salad with fresh corn, pieces of slab bacon, and an amazing blue cheese. Two of us had the mussels, which were the classic French/Belgian preparation, with a generous slice of bread for sopping up the broth. My husband had the cobia with three onions and three vinegars, and our other companion had a beautiful piece of roast chicken with olives. We had a wonderful evening, chatting with Frank in the open kitchen which is separated from the dining room by an old wooden bar.

We've always found Henry's to be a gem of a place to eat well-prepared French food in a fun and casual atmosphere, but just had to share our experience of such an unexpected treat!
