Henry and the Fox aims to please everyone. Really. Whether you’re organising a midweek business lunch, Friday drinks or a boozy brunch, it has an answer. This versatility, and proximity to the city’s legal district, makes Henry and the Fox a popular option with suits at just about any time of day.
Weekday breakfasts include toast, omelettes and other fast, no-fuss options. For an equally speedy lunch, order the poached-salmon salad or a confit garlic pizza with two types of cheese. If you’re grazing, there are plenty of bite-sized dishes, such as fiore di burrata with a basil oil injection, and truffle and taleggio arancini.
Later on the covered beer garden and the bright green chairs inside begin filling with thirsty workers. Coopers and Sapporo are on tap, accompanied by fun cocktails and wines by the glass from well-established Australian producers.
On weekends it’s all about boozy brunches. Try gin-cured ocean trout on rye with poached eggs and hollandaise, maybe matched with an espresso martini.
