After you've been seated -- perhaps in a comfortable booth -- you'll be able to take in a handsome blend of such industrial touches as exposed piping and an eye-catching grouping of paintings on the walls. The "just so" design and the Stepford-ness of the servers' matching button-up/jean combos might make you feel slightly uneasy -- like you're in a movie scene in which every quirky detail looks almost natural or even accidental, but not quite.
The Henry's menu features appetizers, salads, sandwiches, and entrees, while drink offerings include "homemade" soda and tonics, beer, wine, cocktails, and coffee. Starters include matzoh ball soup and Swedish meatballs, and though the Prairie Breeze Cheddar Popovers are the spotlighted choice on the menu, our server recommended the Brie Toast ($8).
It was good -- a slice of crusty bread cut four ways and topped with Brie, pear, pomegranate seeds, hazelnuts, and arugula. Use a fork to avoid ending up with toppings in your lap and you'll be off to a satisfying, if not tremendous, start.
