The Tavern at the Henley Park Hotel offers delectable cuisine that blends historic charm with modern flavors. Adorned with ornate chandeliers, a stunning skylight atrium and red brick walls, The Tavern reflects the hotel's authentic charm and historical elegance and serves a diverse selection of American classics using fresh, regionally-sourced ingredients. Closest Metro is Convention Center.
I enjoyed the Grilled Shrimp on top of brioche toast points with wild mushrooms and onions soaked in a rich lobster Pernod cream sauce. This dish was surprisingly savory and delectable. It paired nicely with a glass of Chardonnay.
For my main dish, I stuck with the seafood theme and ordered the Crab Cake, which came with a sweet corn and hearts of palm mache salad with a tart cactus pear vinaigrette. The flavors of the salad were bright and perfect for Spring. The crab cake itself was large and full of actual crab meat. This was not a heavy dish, and made for a great meal.
Overall, the Tavern provided a classic American meal in a quaint setting within the Henley Park Hotel. The current space is a bit dated and dark in décor, however they are planning a full renovation later this year.
