Norwegian chef Henning Nordanger's take on American comfort food

BASED IN UPSTATE NEW YORK IN THE WESTERN CATSKILLS IN SULLIVAN COUNTY

Located in the upstairs space above the historic Heinle’s General Store in Cochecton Center, Henning's Local is a place for everyone, from the smallest get-together to the largest celebration. The experience calls to mind the simple pleasures of food one finds at an inn in southern France or at a local Italian trattoria, while retaining the relaxed and rustic atmosphere of the Catskills. 

To showcase his love for good, honest food, Henning has built long-term relationships with many regional sustainable agricultural practices and businesses, including farms, bakeries, wineries, distilleries, and various culinary artisans.

Cochecton Fire Station

From signature cocktails to tasty food, the Cochecton Fire Station is sure to become a staple in the community.
- Sullivan County Democrat

Originally the town’s actual fire station, its new owners Josiah Early and Ezekiel Miller ingeniously converted the building into a community bar and restaurant. Together with Henning they have collaborated on an original food menu in two parts - '$5 / Not $5' - with all ingredients enhanced by the use of a wood-burning oven. Located at 1 Depot Road next to Cochecton Mills, this neighborhood place is open every day (except Tuesday), 12noon-10pm. Instagram @cochectonfirestation

Josiah and Ezekiel are also the team behind The Horses Mouthan events and consulting business, with a focus on specialty cocktails and hosting cocktail-making and cocktail history workshops. They created the unique craft cocktail menu at Henning's Local. Instagram @thehorsesmouthny
