Living on the north side has its perks, there’s always great ethnic food, unique mom and pop shops and of course the All-American brunch venues. I first heard about M Henry from friends who transplanted to New York who were in town for the holidays a few years ago. We all agreed to meet up and were met with an hour long line and little possibility of being seated with a party of twelve on such short notice. I never held it against them and got the chance to stop in during the summer and rock some great Eggs Benedict.
Recently, I stopped by with my cousins to enjoy some fried egg sandwich. You’ll be surprised to find that M Henry is BYOB which means it’s a perfect place to grab some champagne and manufacture some mimosas. My cousins ordered salmon omelete, quiche, and another had a fried egg sandwich and we went with some legendary blackberry blisscake. Not having a sweet tooth, I have to say that the combination of firmness along with the fresh fruit and savory sauce did the trick to be delightful. If you can stand the line, you’ll find M Henry to serve up interesting organic spins on favorite classics, good service, awesome sweet tea and desert worth taking home.
