Another JEY restaurant has opened its doors in Fort Lauderdale! The ever expanding restaurant group recently opened the doors to Henry’s Sandwich Station, the first food concept to plant its roots in the new FATVillage neighborhood in Downtown Fort Lauderdale. Just miles north of Miami, soon under 30 minutes by high-speed rail, FATVillage is further developing an integration with artists and designers. The four block district itself is named after the 501c3 non-profit arts organization, FATVillage Arts District Inc. Property owners Doug McCraw and Lutz Hofbauer created FATVillage Arts District to rally philanthropic support around sustaining an artist community.
The name Henry’s is a nod to Henry Flagler, responsible for the Florida East Coast Railway (which runs directly behind the sandwich shop). Owner Marc Falsetto wanted to focus on small batch, artisanal purveyors and house smoked and cured meats. in my opinion, he knocked it out of the park! All of the bread served on site is prepared by local bakeries. Their “Signature Sandwiches” range from Montreal style smoked meat on Zak The Baker Jewish Rye to slow roasted Prime Rib, served with homemade horseradish cream.
I went on a Friday night before going over to Revolution Live for a concert (about a mile away). Henry’s proved to be a perfect spot to pregame for the concert, great food and cold beers! I HIGHLY recommend the Crispy Chicken Sandwich, one of the best I have found in South Florida. Also, the Truffle Grilled Cheese. And the Cuban! SO BASICALLY GET IT ALL and GO HUNGRY!
Now lets take a look at some of my favorites I tried that night!
