Sullivan County Stop: Hennings Local



















We have a new restaurant in upstate, which makes all of us weekenders very happy. Henning's Local is in Eldred, which is about 8 minutes from 17B, and about 10 minutes off of Highway 17. So if you are anywhere near 17 the Monticello Raceway exit, this is something good to know about. It's a restaurant opened by a couple who put a lot of love into their renovation, decor, and thoughtful menu. They list all of their food sources, and almost everything is local. We loved the Steak Diane and the Norwegian Trout. There was plenty for the kids, but I think one of their favorite things was the wishing well...and being able to walk around outside. The owner/chef is Norwegian, and has a lot of menu items that reflect that. The restaurant is at the Eldred Preserve, which is a trout farm, where people can go and fish, and keep the fish. You can also stay there, but as cute as the cabins are from the outside, I think they need a renovation.  Henning's Local also has nice hours--open til 10pm, even on Sunday night!
