Three of us from work went to the restaurant for lunch mostly because we liked the name of the restaurant. We were all 100% satisfied with the excellent service--he seemed to like the food so much, we almost invited him to sit down and share ours--and he was proud of the food they served--a plus for the training and for his sincere enthusiasm (we bake everything here from scratch--even the pretzels for the pretzels and provolone cheese dish. Oh, that. If for no other reason, head to Culinary Dropout (what would the food be like if the chef had graduated???) and have the homemade little pretzels and the melted, gooey, yummy, cheese. The Cuban was a hit with one of us, the fries were crisp and good ("we cut the potatoes fresh on the premises"), and the cannolis with butternut squash, mushroom, and brussel sprouts looked divine and I was very good not to stick my fork in my colleagues food--she loved the dish. My Italian grinder wasn't like those of ancient memory from Connecticut/New York, but it was delicious. Good, too, since the second half is tomorrow's lunch. Very cool decor--expect it to get noisy at night. The full bar beckoned, but it was, after all, lunch with work to follow.

Dominique was AWESOME! The fried chicken was really good as well as the Gumbolaya. We really liked the atmosphere here as well.

We had a late dinner and were able to people watch since the inside restaurant is connected to a large bar area. They also have a nice outside area with fireplaces and couches. We ordered the fried chicken which was cooked perfectly, with honey soaked into the chicken. The ribs were average and did not taste like they were "slow cooked" as advertised. The pretzels with the cheese fondue was a nice appetizer. Natalie was a great server.

HRH doesn't have much selection for food. We chose this place over the adjacent restaurant because it looked more fun. My wife and I split the pretzel fondue and Cuban sandwich. The pretzel fondue was very good and came with plenty of cheese.

The quantity of fries that came with Cuban sandwich was laughable for the price. It didn't come close to filling the surface area of the plate. If I'm going to drop $10+ on a sandwich, I expect a few fries to go with it! In addition, we asked for ketchup and they brought out a decent sized metal cup. Then we found out it was only filled like 1/8"! LoL at least they're consistent with being stingy on anything related to french fries.

I probably wouldn't eat here again.
