Bistro Henry: Manchester VT Dining
Dining Out….at Bistro Henry, Rtes 11 & 30, Manchester Vermont. Bistro Henry is the perfect place for an elegant dining experience, but with a more casual dining atmosphere. When I inquired if Henry was in this evening? The response was if the door is unlocked then Henry (Chef – Owner Henry Bronson) is in the restaurant.
We were treated to some of the best service that we have experienced anywhere, a fine wine by the glass list as well as an outstanding bottled wine list as we sat down to hear the daily specials. Full bar is also available.
The salads were outstanding with a house dressing of mustard vingerette, you can choose blue cheese sprinkled delicately on top if you like. The bread was warm, crusty, and gone in a very short period of time.
Special included, Butternut Apple Soup, and Sole stuffed with a crabmeat lobster stuffing in a lobster sauce. Also on the menu, Angel Hair Pasta with Shrimp, Roasted Corn & Lemon Cream sauce. That is about as far as we got into the menu. And nobody wanted to share.
Although the menu has Lamb, Sweetbreads, Duck only one way, Salmon, Trout, Steak and Chicken, which looked outstanding. Our selections could not have been better, and the presentation superb.
Dessert, prepared by Dina, (Henry’s Wife) topped off dinner and completed the excellent meal. We did share Maple Creme Brulee, Pear & Blueberry Crisp, and one of the lightest textured Maple Pecan Pie slices that we had ever had. I wished I had looked at the dessert menu first, but Oh no I would not have wanted to miss the Sole.

My recommendation is that Bistro Henry is a must in the Manchester area for people who like food. I did see several local people there and that will tell you that this is a quality restaurant with reasonable prices and delicious food.
