Henry at Life Hotel
Henry is in a hotel near Herald Square, but it doesn’t feel like a typical Midtown hotel restaurant. The space is about as dimly lit as a movie theater, and the speakers are blasting a steady rotation of OutKast and Diddy. The menu is made up primarily of pan-African dishes with influences from the Caribbean and Asia, like tamarind jerk BBQ chicken and scallops with braised pork belly.
