Henry Food



Henry at Life Hotel offers a vibrant dinner experience in midtown New York City. Led by James Beard Award winning Chef Joseph “JJ” Johnson, featuring his Pan-African culinary style -- a cuisine influenced by all of the Diasporas of the African experience. Dishes offered are rich in inspiration from African, Latin, and Caribbean flavors, with Chef JJ drawing from his own Caribbean heritage and travels as well.

Henry's creative cocktail program uses ingredients from the kitchen with flavorful twists on spritzes, martinis and a menu full of original drinks crafted with house-made ingredients and syrups.

Located in the historic former LIFE magazine headquarters inside the boutique LIFE hotel, just blocks away from Madison Square Garden and Herald Square, enjoy a piece of NYC history and a culinary experience for all the senses.
