It isn’t often waiting in line brings value to the experience.

But, at The Henry, you almost hope there is a line because the flying trays of food and eaters warrant gawk and gaze respectively. And the rooftop bar of this Uptown Dallas gem is worthy of a “guac-a-rita”, maybe 30 minutes pre-dinner.

As for the menu, it has a wide range of vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free offerings; and it’s both date- and business-friendly.

The other unexpected treat is the bakery nook positioned ideally close to the valet. The macarons will get you coming back, and that darn flat white is a must for those that crave the velvety espresso and steamed milk drink.

It’s also worth mentioning the staff puts forth a solid effort and is anchored by an elegant management team, led by Kelly Corson.

Look carefully, and you’ll see that the full name is The Henry, The Greatest Neighborhood Restaurant. Simply put, it lives up to the name.
