As you might have seen on my social media channels, my family and I had just got back from a 5-day trip to New York City. After waiting for 4 years, we finally visited the very city where Mr. Man and I met for the first time since high school. It was amazing to come back to that city as a married couple with a kid of our own.
Now there were too many awesome things that we ate, saw and experienced there to put in one blog post, so I'm going to post about the trip sporadically. Starting with how we ended the trip : having brunch at Cafe Henri in Long Island City.
Through this post, I am also announcing that I am starting a youtube channel where I will be uploading short clips to support the contents of this blog. So for instance, if I'm posting an article here about a restaurant, you'd likely find a short video about it on the youtube channel. So please subscribe and show love :)
Anyways, back to Cafe Henri. As you could probably see in the video, the eatery's ambience is very intimate and pretty with classic French menus that are served from as early as 8 a.m.
What we ordered :
Le Pain Perdu aux amandes et fruits frais which is basically some fancy French Toast with Fruits and bacon. The maple syrup is bomb.
Les Crêpes Citron Sucré which means Crepes with Lemon and Sugar. Citrusy yet sweet at the same time, just the way I like it.
Tartine 4 : Baguette, Butter, and Natural Jams) for J. We also tried the Saumon Fumé, crème au basilic (Salmon with Basil Cream) and L’Omelette avec choix de trois (Omelette with Choice of 3) which were all amazing.
If you wanna stick to what you know, they also serve pasta and burger. But why eat a burger at a French bistro, bruh?
Anyways, what I also like is the fact that Cafe Henri is only walking distance from Long Island City Waterfront Promenade, where you can see the breathtaking view of Manhattan Skyline and Queensbridge (I like Brooklyn Bridge better tho). So yeah, we would definitely come back whenever we're in town!
