Neutral Bay Scores A New Restaurant Serving Japanese-Inspired Share Plates With A South American Twist

Eat, Restaurants, Sydney / 11 February 2020

After the success of its Cronulla outpost, Henrys expands with a new restaurant in Neutral Bay.

The Lower North Shore has welcomed a string of exciting new foodie spots over the past few months, solidifying its place as a must-see dining destination. From Mosman’s favourite rooftop bar playing host to a month-long Melted Cheese Festival to the multi-million dollar renovation of Neutral Bay’s The Oaks (boasting the delicious dining room Alala’s), there’s plenty of reason to head over the bridge. And in great news, another new player has joined the area with an innovative dining offering combining the best of Japanese and South American cuisine.

The restaurant in question is Henrys Neutral Bay, finding its home in the former digs of the award-winning Woodland Kitchen on Grosvenor Street. This new opening comes off the back of the success of Henrys Cronulla, a favourite in the Shire since opening its doors in 2015. This casual eatery and bar have been welcoming locals into its lofty, light-filled dining room for years, with a Japanese-inspired share-style menu perfect for enjoying among friends after a day at the beach.

In a similar vein, Henrys Neutral Bay is set to capture this same laid-back atmosphere and welcoming charm with an added touch of sophistication to reflect the new location. With natural, modern interiors accentuated by subtle shades of black, white and rose gold, this stylish spot will cater to everything from long ladies lunches to romantic first dates. Co-owner Sam Ha along with her husband are excited to be expanding the Henrys concept to a new audience of locals, hoping to create a space for Neutral Bay residents to gather and dine with family and friends.

At the helm of the kitchen is Henrys Cronulla’s Head Chef Allan Mikami, a Brazil-native with Japanese parents boasting a unique ability to combine the flavours of Japan and South America. Trained by some of Sydney’s top chefs from restaurants such as Monopole and Jersey in Woollahra, Allan is set to deliver his signature cuisine to the Lower North Shore with an innovative selection of share plates. Dig into everything from crispy flathead tacos with habanero mayo, yellowfin tuna sashimi with ponzu and cucumber remoulade and the unmissable Alaskan king crab soldiers with foie gras and sorrel.
