Fresh seafood is Henry’s Salt of the Sea’s strong point, and a French inspiration gives it its flair. In a rustic ambience with an old port tavern feel, where the owner is proud to be wearing ‘an apron, not a tie’, a tiny kitchen serves plates of fresh fish and seafood in a variety of forms (fried, baked, broiled, sautée, on pasta) accompanied by delicious sauces and sides. Among the signature dishes that Henry’s Salt of the Sea delights in offering are the lobster francaise with capers, mushrooms and tomatoes, and the sautéed jumbo lump crabmeat served with brown butter.
