Henri is no longer open. The food was amazing and had a great patio for outdoor dining. Acanto has opened where Henri's used to be and it is also very nice.

We enjoyed a very tasty, although expensive meal at this classic clubby restaurant on June 21st. Apart from the challenge of reading the menu in darkness ( which improved once the street lights went on), the service, ambience and food made for a pleasant evening....More

French food done well is a rare treat. Treat yourself to Henri's. I had a restaurant experience here that I never had anywhere else. I asked the waiter for recommendations between the rabbit and salmon dishes. I told him I wasn't a huge salmon fan...More

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.
