How much do I love 10 Foot Henry? Let me count the ways….. As of this blog post, I have now returned to this establishment two more times and it has been an absolute delight each and every meal. Located conveniently on the beltline, across the street from my favourite Calgary hotel (Hotel Arts), every dish I’ve had here has been a taste sensation – so much so that I once double ordered the yellow fin crudo in one sitting. No regrets.
First off, the decor is the best. The ceiling is adorned with a plethora of hanging plants and you can watch the open air kitchen with bated breath for your meal to be released. The cocktails are phenomenal… and I wish I could remember which ones these were (their drink menu is noticeably absent from their website) but the one on the right was a cucumber dream.
Ten Foot Henry is all about family style sharing, which I can get into…. until it comes down to certain plates involving tuna.
Remember me mentioning that double order of yellow fin crudo? Well, here it is. I get dewy eyed just thinking about how good it is. The chimichurri combined with the sesame seeds and chilis.
The bucatini cacio e pepe is so simple yet such a perfect pasta in every way – cheese and pepper, what more does one want? It’s actually what I want most days.
Peep the full menu here.
The grilled asparagus was also life altering when combined with truffle aioli and manchego cheese.
We then finished off dinner with chocolate truffle balls covered in pistachios.
