m. henry

I’ve been so busy with my new pooch that have neglected to post a bunch of stuff I’ve been meaning to post. Last Sunday I met up with some of my new classmates for brunch. We’d been trying to find a place that wasn’t too far out of everyone’s way and that wouldn’t be totally swamped. After much deliberation, I suggested M. Henry in Andersonville. I’d never been but had read good reviews. It’s also only about a mile from my apartment, which is a much quicker walk than I imagined. I think it took me about 15 minutes and on a nice sunny September day, it was quite lovely.

M. Henry: chow for now promises “globally inspired, new American style cooking. We prepare all our food from the finest natural and season ingredients available, using locally produced and organic products whenever possible.” Definitely sounded like my kinda place.
I was happy to find they could actually fit a group of six of us in around 10:30 and we were able to sit on the lovely back patio. The waitress was very helpful in assisting with me figuring out what brunch items would be free of gluten.
I ended up going for a special, which included a roasted poblano pepper stuffed with scrambled eggs and chorizo, (tofu scramble and soyrizo were also available,) two homemade corn tortillas, grape tomatoes, orange slices, mexicali rice, mango, plaintains etc. Delicious but way too much for one sitting. The rest of the menu looks pretty tantalizing too. I’ll definitely be heading back here.
I also noticed they’ve recently — as in just a week or so ago — a little sister to M. Henry that’s about a block from my apartment. No menu’s been posted online for M. Henrietta at this time, but I’m sure it’s pretty similar. I can’t wait to try it!
