Henri is a solid choice for a good dining in Chicago. Not many vegetarian options - I had the salad and the ravioli filled with butternut squash. Both were good. Note that the current menu is different than the one posted online, so if there's...More

Delicious courses, great service and beautiful decor. Henri is not as stylish as Tru but definately a worthy opponent. We had the wine pairing meal which was served at just the right pace and was delightful. I highly recommend it.

From the creators of The Gage comes Henri — energetically American, French influenced. Heralded as an "instant classic", Henri offers fine dining without pretention. Under the direction of Executive Chef Chris Gawronski, Henri’s menu is influenced by the refining principles of classical cuisine. Innovative dishes like kampachi crudo join traditional favorites such as foie gras, steak tartare, Dover sole and ribeye au poivre. The tasting menu highlights the bounty of the season, accompanied by perfectly paired wines by sommelier Jason Wagner. The carefully curated wine list is almost exclusively biodynamic, while cocktails are both creative and classic. Reminiscent of a European salon, Henri provides an elegant respite from bustling Michigan Avenue.
