As soon as you enter Chez Henri you either get it or you don't. It reminds me something you would find on a side street in the Left Bank or in the French Countryside. Tiny Marble Bar with a few Romantic Booths. The Dining area has booths on one side, tables throughout the center and a fireplace on one wall. I chose a reasonably priced Vacqueyras to split with my son, my wife drank Champagne by the glass. We started with a dozen Blue Points, very fresh, perfect actually. We then split Escargot and Mussels. Escargot in a nice Butter sauce with puff pastry sticks, we soaked up the sauce with bread. Mussels were classic white wine garlic broth, again wonderful. My son and wife both had Duck, Roasted Breast and Leg/Thigh confit, spectacular presentation, the skin on the confit was crispy with the perfectly cooked meat underneath, it melted in your mouth. I had the Veal Normande, three medallions of Veal with a wonderful Normande Sauce. We finished the Vacqueyras so we ordered a half bottle of Guigal CDR, one of the best Rhones out there for the money. Dessert was Creme Brulee, Meringue Tort, and a Chocolate Mousse Cake, with our Espresso's and Grand Marinier! The welcome and warm service is perfect. Thank You Henri, Bernard, Brian, Peter and of course Quayle, for making Mary Ellen's first Chez Henri visit so special. Our son is going home to France this week and I couldn't think of a better send off for him.
