Dinner at HENRY'S END was again a great success.
Midweek it is not very crowded so we decided to drop in.
The menu was wonderful, as always. What to choose?
The old standbys are so good.. the ribs and fried chicken are outstanding, the best around, I think. So many things sounded so tempting, but we decided to go with the game...again, since the season is so short.
As a starter we shared the Wild Game Charcuterie Platter, a nice slab of the Wild Game Paté,Warm Rabbit Sausage and Warm Wild Boar Sausage served with two sauces, cornichons, and some Mesclun.It was wonderful with the fresh, aromatic golden raisin bread from CAPUTO.
Then a refreshing mixed salad.
Monsieur was feeling very adventurous, and ordered the South Texas Antilope . I ordered the Danish Venison Stew which he had a few weeks ago.
The Antilope was luscious,perfectly grilled to medium, served on a Lingonberry sauce with a Parsnip Purée . The Venison was heavenly, buttery and tender, with a rich winey sauce accentuated by juniper berries and a touch of caraway.
The only fault I find here is the not very imaginative, same old dessert menu,which never changes, and the lack of imagination with some accompanying vegetables. I would have liked a red cabbage dish with the Venison.
The price for such wonderful food is extremely reasonable. Even more so because we had the Birthday Card I received from them offering the entrée at no charge. Ask your waiter or waitress for the form and sign up.
