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.
