We have created an unpretentious, friendly atmosphere; a place for casual fun, and of course, fresh, delicious food in the upstairs space above the historic Heinle’s General Store. The emphasis is on locally grown ingredients, and our flavors, both simple and complex, create a pleasant culinary experience with beautifully presented, generous dishes.

Our restaurant revolves around certain key concepts like rustic, local, comfort, and home cooking. You won’t find as good a meal, for as good a price, in the area.

Henning’s Local is a place where anyone will be able go, for the smallest get-together to the largest celebration. 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.

Our focus is on things that may have been lost along the way – something as simple as relaxing. We often forget that we humans can come together around the table’s pleasures; to eat and drink something that tastes good and makes us feel good, and to enjoy the good company of each other.

Norwegian international Henning Nordanger and wife Karen Flood have for a long time searched for the perfect place to showcase their love for good, honest, fresh food with friends, and are building relationships with local farmers, purveyors, winemakers, and any other culinary artisans to ensure the best quality products available in our area. The restaurant is committed to contributing to our community through local purchasing and staffing.

We believe we have found the perfect place for this, 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.
