Food Porn: Henry Public

Henry Public is just not good for brunch. I want it to be. But it is really not a brunch spot. It just isn’t. Sure, they technically have a brunch menu, but even basic things like hot coffee appear to be a total mystery. The service has never quite been lacking, but there’s certainly no urgency to the staff’s attention to your needs. Overall, I’d say there is somehow something very unsatisfying about it all, which is a shame given how wonderfully comfortable, charming, and novel this neighborhood bar really is [at night].

For whatever reason, I’ve only ever gone to Henry Public when we have guests visiting. Perhaps it’s the thrift store-sourced interior, or the variety of house-this and house-that (pepper vodka, pickles, etc.), or the frequency with which it appears in travel and food magazines, but Henry Public is a consistent “must.”

Regardless, the food is not worth reviewing in details, so instead I present Eats Meats West’s latest food porn installment:

    Even I thought this was a little dirty.

    a poached egg over greens just never sits well for me. All that sticky luke-warm yoke over now un-crisp arugula..pass.
    I came to this page looking for the money shot… thick toasted bread, spread wide to reveal moist turkey dripping with succulent gravy. My mouth is so wet just thinking about it.
