Review: Henry’s Bar and Restaurant at the Graduate

The former Durant Hotel has been revamped into the Graduate Hotel (see this article in Forbes for background) and now features Henry’s Bar and Restaurant. On the corner of Durant and Bowditch, this will likely become a popular happy hour or after-work gathering spot for people on our side of campus. While it’s not cheap (appetizers range from $5 – $18), it isn’t out of synch with other Berkeley and Oakland restaurants. Its menu has variety and seasonal offerings, and the atmosphere is casual and friendly. Some of us in the development office have tried it on separate occasions and the reviews are uniformly positive.
