Holy Brownie Batman!: Review of Henry's Restaurant

THE HEARTS: Food, atmosphere

THE FARTS: Portion size on some items, air conditioning was blasting

Young Old Fart says...'s okay to cry. I know you missed me and my obsession with sweets. That's right, I know your will to live was obliterated without my constant reminders of all things delicious and divine : )

Henry's Restaurant is a really nice place to grab a bite to eat. What's even sweeter is that they consistently have "crate to plate" specials that feature local food.

Young At Heart decided to go with Henry's stuffed portebella mushroom with a small side salad topped with their infamous cucumber dill dressing.  She said it was delicious and a perfectly light meal.  In my opinion, it could have afforded another cap or so. 

I went with a spinach salad topped with salmon. The salmon was perfectly cooked, crusty outside with a buttery center. If it were me I would eat grilled salmon every night and blissfully die from mercury poisoning.

Okay, now for the best part...DESSERT! Both my mom and I were looking forward to their molten chocolate lava cake but unfortunately they have discontinued it since it was the only dessert not made in-house (YOU FOOLS! You should've jacked the recipe THEN stopped ordering it! Or at the very least send me a crate or two...). Alas, we both "settled" for their brownie sundae. Silly little waiter thought we were going to share one...silly waiter, proper portion sizes are for amateurs.

The brownies had that perfect crisp top with a slightly undercooked center, and the ice cream, whipped cream, and chocolate sauce were the perfect complement. Although, I would've preferred to have my brownies warm enough to melt the ice cream a tad, along with more chocolate sauce. Hey if I go all out, I go ALL out! should definitely check Henry's out. You and I both know those brownies are calling your name : )

Kittens and fudge,
Young Old Fart
