Crawfish boil at Henninger's

July 21, 2011|By Richard Gorelick | The Baltimore Sun

Word got to me that Jayne Vieth was introducing a Wednesday night $20 crawfish boil at Henninger's last night. So I went down to Upper Fells Point and tried it.

Lip-smacking good. My cyborg friends finished all of their crawfish, shrimp, corn and potatoes, but I didn’t' come close. Henninger's -- I've said on record that it's one of my favorite restaurants. And the fact is that I'm not anonymous there. 

Henninger's isn't one of your flashier places. Menu additions arrive glacially. But, suddenly, there are: broiled eggplant pouches stuffed with roasted red pepper and fresh mozzarella, game hen with savory gruyere bread pudding and pan jus. Worth a try, but I'd go Wednesday for the crawfish boil.

Kenny Vieth, who has owned Henninger's for, what 22 years, showed me the insane new cover art for the Henninger's menu. I'm going to try to get a copy of it to show you.
