West Hollywood gains a massive new all-day restaurant starting today from True Food Kitchen founder Sam Fox, filling out the bottom floor of the Robertson Plaza building. Named The Henry, it’s an extension of Fox’s Phoenix eatery that offers everything from coffee and pastries in the morning, sandwiches and salads on the daytime menu, and chops and truffle risotto for dinner.
The versatile establishment spans a wide floor plan with a ritzy, modern Gatsby-style interior that feels lavish and elegant but still appropriate for 2018. There’s lush greenery, leather banquettes, and even lounge areas for hanging out. Taking over the former Newsroom cafe in West Hollywood, one of the iconic people-watching spots of the aughts (Paris Hilton, TomKat, etc), The Henry seems primed to take over Robertson Boulevard’s chic influencer and celebrity crowd.
The menu itself has some notable highlights that cover a range of cuisines, ingredients, and flavors, kind of like a 21st century Cheesecake Factory (in a good way). Avocado hummus, BBQ heirloom carrot salad, short rib potstickers, rotisserie French dip, Wagyu burger, and black truffle risotto are just a few example of the dishes one will find on the bill of fare, with plenty of gluten-free, vegan, and vegetarian options. The Henry bills itself as the “greatest neighborhood restaurant,” and with this kind of utility, from morning to evening, cocktails to coffee, indoor-outdoor vibe, and a multi-faceted menu, it’s hard to argue against that claim.
Open at 7 a.m. for coffee and breakfast, with lunch commencing at 11:30 a.m. Dinner service starts at 4 p.m. and goes until 10 p.m. from Sunday to Thursday, and until 11 p.m. on weekends. Brunch service runs 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on weekends.
The Henry. 120 North Robertson Boulevard, Los Angeles, CA 90048.
