Thomas Henkelmann Restaurant Review

: Thomas and Theresa Henkelmann create an unforgettable experience in a charming, renovated eighteenth-century manse that boasts 18 luxurious suites and rooms in three separate buildings. From the setting to the cuisine, not one minute detail goes overlooked. Visit the intimate bar-lounge for a pre-dinner cocktail. The dining room, with its half-timbered ceilings and fireplace, is divided into cozy booths and private rooms, all situated around the main tables. Service is invariably attentive, yet unobtrusive. And as for the cuisine, Henkelmann’s training under some of Europe's preeminent chefs (Paul Haeberlin, Eckart Witzigmann, etc.) ensures this German-born chef can deliver flawless classic French cuisine. Appetizers include sautéed shrimp with artichoke hearts, baby lettuce and vegetable pearls in a delicately flavored coriander vinaigrette, and a seared rare chilled yellowfin tuna given a tropical treatment with mango-pineapple chutney. A gourmet take on surf ‘n’ turf boasts a grenadin of veal with Maine lobster risotto. Henkelmann himself coordinates the comprehensive wine list dominated by fine French vintages. If all this somehow doesn’t impress, the desserts, such as a marzipan tart served with a warm ragoût of Bing cherries and cherry ice cream, or the Valrhona chocolate soufflé cake with a liquid chocolate center should do the trick. And if you happen to stay the night, one taste of the croissants the next morning will make you a believer all over again.
