Henrietta's Table Restaurant Review

: In a spacious setting with a Crate & Barrel-meets-New England farmhouse feel, Henrietta's Table transcends its hotel-restaurant reputation. Chef Peter Davis was a champion of local products before it was trendy, allowing the menu to speak for itself with straightforward presentations of distinctly American dishes. Yankee pot roast with mashed potatoes and gravy says home, as does herb-crusted rotisserie chicken. We like the seared wild sockeye salmon with native cider reduction before enjoying Henrietta's Chocolate Bread Pudding Sundae. The wine list is all-American and fun cocktails include the strawberry jalapeño daiquiri. Note that the lavish all-you-can-eat buffet brunch is a Sunday institution among tweedy Cantabrigians (Saturday’s brunch service is à la carte).
