Surprise Cocktails & Cuisine at Henri
April 09, 2012 | by —Elle Eichinger | Homepage
This Wednesday at 6:30 PM, Henri presents Le Mysterieux Festin—a mysterious feast—that calls on the city’s top bartenders to create a unique cocktail based on an ingredient that each blindly picks from a list of more than 100 items. Your mixologists for the night hail from hotspots like Bangers and Lace, Duchamp, Hot Chocolate, Vie, and Sepia. Henri Executive Chef Dirk Flanigan will create a complementary dish for each cockatil in the restaurant's style of French-influenced American, resulting in a five-course meal full of surprises. With no prior knowledge of which ingredients will be chosen before the evening of the event, preparing winning pairings will be the ultimate gastronomic gamble. With a team this talented, it's a chance we're very willing to take. $100, call for reservations. 18 S. Michigan Ave., 312-578-0763
