Chez Henri

1 Shepard St.
Cambridge, MA, 02138, United States
TEL: (617) 354-8980

Pushing the boundaries of fusion cuisine, chef Paul O’Connell seamlessly blends French and Cuban flavors at Chez Henri, located near Harvard Square. Behind the bright red façade, the interior has an upscale, urban vibe with dark wood floors, dim lighting, and frosted glass panels. In the main dining area, the menu includes specialties like steak frites and pan-seared sea scallops with grapefruit barbecue glaze and quinoa pilaf. However, most locals flock to the lively bar area for the signature mojito and the famous pressed Cuban sandwich made with traditional slow-roasted pork (available only at the bar).

Insider Tip:

Seating is first come, first served in the small bar area, so avoid peak hours if you want to guarantee a spot.
