The Henry, a casual eatery from the company behind Flower Child and North Italia, is slated to hit Uptown next month.

The latest DFW arrival from Arizona-based Sam Fox Restaurants will debut at 2301 Akard Street in The Union Dallas, a new development in Uptown. The giant 15,600-square-foot indoor-outdoor eatery will be the third location for The Henry, which operates in Phoenix and West Hollywood. Here diners will find an open kitchen, two bars, a coffee bar, and a patio with fire pits.

Menu favorites from the restaurant’s other locations are making the trek to Dallas, including short rib potstickers featuring toasted sesame and yuzu ponzu; Korean prime skirt steak with egg fried rice, bok choy, snow pea, pickled shiitake, and spicy ginger; and grilled portobello tacos with guajillo chile, summer squash, guacamole, refried chickpeas, and queso blanco. Executive Chef Imsub Lee dreamt up several more Southern-centric dishes for the Dallas location including a spicy fried chicken sandwich with caramelized honey aioli, pickles, mustard seed slaw, and pepper jack cheese; and a spicy wild-caught shrimp boil with sweet corn, roasted zucchini, red potatoes, charred onion, and garlic ciabatta.

As far as drinks go, cocktail enthusiasts will find an Italian take on a mezcal sour made with Banhez mezcal, anejo tequila, spiced curaçao, citrus, and a splash of Lambrusco, plus something called a “Wake the Angels” with Hendrick’s gin, rose petal, grapefruit, yuzu, topped with sparkling wine. Coffee lovers can snag a plethora of espresso-based beverages including the Go North with espresso, cocoa, and cream that’s shaken over ice until frothy and cold.

The Henry’s will serve lunch, dinner, brunch, and happy hour when it opens February 13.
