Read about Henning’s Local and Norwegian chef Henning Nordanger’s take on American comfort food in The New York Times/T Magazine in “What to Do (and Where to Stay) in the Western Catskills” and Escape Brooklyn in “Try These 5 Farm-to-Table Restaurants.”
Located in the upstairs space above the historic Heinle’s General Store, we have created an unpretentious and friendly atmosphere and a place for fresh and delicious food. With an emphasis on locally grown ingredients – our flavors are both simple and complex – we have designed a unique culinary experience with beautifully presented, generous dishes.
The restaurant revolves around certain key concepts, such as rustic, local, comfort, and home cooking. You won’t find as good a meal, for as good a price, in the area.
From the smallest get-together to the largest celebration, Henning’s Local is a place for everyone. The experience calls to mind the honest pleasures of food one finds at an inn in southern France or at a local Italian trattoria, while retaining the relaxed, special atmosphere of the Catskills.
In order to showcase his love for good and honest food, chef Henning Nordanger has built long term relationships with regional farmers, purveyors, winemakers, and other culinary artisans to ensure the best quality products available in the area. The restaurant is committed to contributing to the community through local purchasing and staffing.
Surrounded by so many hardworking and dedicated producers of fresh, local, and sustainable products, we consider it a great privilege to be part of the growing awareness of real food.
