Do come out on the balcony to soak within the view for at the least a couple of minutes although!
The Henry, by the best way, validates parking for the parking the storage, accessible on Cedar Springs. I at all times stress about parking within the coronary heart of Dallas so I used to be thrilled to see a storage with ample parking proper subsequent to it!
It was so laborious to decide on our drinks as a result of the Hamptons on the Henry cocktails are so enjoyable. Irene ordered the Frose, with pink wine, pomegranate, peach, lemon, and passionfruit and I ordered the piña colada with ron matusalem platino, spiced rum, pineapple, lime, and crème de coconut. You understand what a sucker I’m for a superb piña colada however they’re laborious to search out! That is arms down the perfect piña colada I’ve had in Dallas. It was superbly introduced, completely blended, and the flavour was unbelievably scrumptious. Run and get your self one ASAP!
I additionally received the Surf Water with hangar one vodka, pineapple, contemporary lemon, and giffard noix de coconut. Don’t let the brilliant blue scare you off; that is one refreshing drink! The Henry actually is aware of how combine up an incredible coconut cocktail, and the presentation actually couldn’t be cuter.

What a feast! The Frito Misto is known as a should. Not one bit was left behind. The remoulade was an actual winner. I like a superb sauce! The Mahi Tacos had a bit an excessive amount of cabbage for me however the fish was expertly cooked and had nice taste. The Lobster Roll was simply implausible on its basic east coast brioche bun.
