Henry

Channelling southern flavours with five pepper bourbon sauce and smokey blue béarnaise, Henry’s ‘butcher shop’ offerings are a classic take on the American steakhouse, in one of Hong Kong’s newest luxury hotel, the Rosewood at Victoria Dockside.

The focus at Henry is on high quality, carefully sourced ingredients and all-American meat, which means you know exactly which ranch your steak comes from. Cuts range from the tasty 250g Brandt Ranch Holstein tenderloin, to the 500g Texan Black Angus ribeye. 

Have it at home: While Henry’s is expected to reopen on 28 April, those hungry for chef Nate Green’s midas touch on beef can also try his new line of burgers — Harley’s Burgers — available only via Deliveroo.
