This a French cafe in Queens from the people behind Casa Enrique, and it's pretty average. But that’s what makes it so special. You come here for plain, un-fancy French food, and the best part is, it isn’t trendy. There’s something soothing about that. The other Cafe Henri in Greenwich Village is closed now, but you can still get some crepes and a sandwich at this one.
