Hotel Henry heats up with Paella on The Patio, and an inaugural Jazz Concert Series.

The Hotel Henry Urban Resort and Conference Center isn’t just a great place to grab drinks and dinner for the locals, it’s also chock full of events that include guest chef dinners, talks, tastings, vegan nights, live music and art walks.

One event that I am personally looking forward to is Paella on The Patio. Guest chef Kristine Pottle will be whipping up her unbelievable paella, which I have personally had the pleasure of trying a number of times (it’s that good). Kristine moved back to Buffalo a few years ago from Seattle, and she brought her culinary magic back home with her.

Enjoy some Red & White Sangria with traditional Spanish Tapas while the giant paella is prepared over an open flame. Kristine’s delicious take on this classic dish includes imported picante & dulce Spanish chorizo, chicken, shrimp, mussels, Spanish pimentón and Calasparra rice. Salads and Sides will compliment the dish, finished with a sweet treat.

Monday, August 28, 2017 | Pot stirring begins at 6pm | $38.00 per person

Coming up soon, on Sunday, August 20, Hotel Henry will be hosting a “chocolate talk”, tasting, and pop-up featuring Dark Forest Chocolate Makers. The artisan chocolatier has recently come away with a number of international awards. This is a sweet opportunity to meet chocolate maker Dan Sundell, and to learn about the various chocolates that are currently being made.

Learn about chocolate’s history and health benefits, see how it’s made from “bean to bar,” and taste the complex flavors of chocolate made with different varieties of cacao.

Choose from two sessions. Seating is limited so reserve your place now.
