A jewel of a restaurant, Henry’s at the Farm is tucked away in the Hudson Valley’s orchard and wine country, at Buttermilk Falls Inn + Spa. Henry’s kitchen and floor staff prepare and present extraordinary meals in an environment that embraces the spirit of their food. It is at once elegant and rustic, refined, yet relaxed.At Henry’s, casual, contemporary American cuisine and sublime craft cocktails are only steps away from Buttermilk’s own Millstone Farm. Fresh eggs and honey, from Millstone’s aviary and apiary appear on the menu and in craft cocktails, year-round.
Top priority: Sourcing Organic FarmsHenry’s works primarily with those who practice organic farming and humane animal husbandry. Cheese, meats, and poultry come from nearby farms such as Coach Farm, Taliaferro Farms, John Fazio Farms, and the seventh generation owned and operated Hepworth Farm.The inventive, seasonal menu features a fresh selection of large and small plates from casual burgers and hand-cut fries to refined New American dishes.
From barn-to-barThe concept of farm-to-table is an integral part of Henry’s signature cocktails, taking full advantage of the organic herbs, vegetables, and fruits grown steps away at Millstone Farm. At Henry’s, it’s known as “Barn-to-Bar.” Notable examples might include the Buttermilk 75, a take on the 1915 classic French 75, with house-made lavender syrup, or the Millstone Farm Bee’s Knees, a Warwick Gin-based cocktail featuring a honey-based simple syrup from Millstone’s own apiary.
Pairing Dinner EventsHenry’s increasingly popular Pairing Dinner Events are in collaboration with both local and international wineries, distilleries, brewers and distributors, hosted in the beautiful Buttermilk Barn, or on Buttermilk’s vast, tented reception patio overlooking the majestic Hudson River. Watch for special announcements for these four-course dinners, always beginning with a “Welcome” libation, and start a delicious, spectacular journey into the worlds of wines, spirits and brews!
Strolling (or snow-shoeing) the groundsLocal comes alive in this bucolic setting, where a pre-dinner stroll is always in order. Henry’s encourages diners to stroll the grounds of Buttermilk’s 70-acre Hudson River estate before or after dinner. A network of trails leads to breathtaking views of the Hudson River, flowering gardens, bubbling brooks, the property’s impressive namesake waterfalls and enchanting ponds. At Millstone Farm, diners pass through organic orchards, and a lush kitchen garden.
