The Henry at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas

It's 2am at the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas and the hotel houses one restaurant to fill your appetite needs 24 hours daily. The Henry is the Cosmopolitan's diner/bar offering classic favorites that the hotel claims are revamped for the Las Vegas Strip.

Looking at the menu, the selections appear pretty traditional but that's a good thing as there are lots of alternative upscale fare at the hotel's other restaurants. The list of lunch specialities gives the customer an idea of the comfy cuisine available: French Dip, Piled High Reuben; Chicken Pot Pie and (tempura fried) Fish 'N' Chips. "The Henry Burger" available after 5pm sounds pretty satisfying with caramelized onions and mushrooms, sharp cheddar on a soft potato roll.

But at this time of night my attention is directed to the offerings on the "Late Night at The Henry" section of the menu. I'll likely eat a full breakfast later in the morning, so I look for something simple but sweet: Cinnamon Roll French Toast (dipped in french vanilla custard, candied pecans, maple syrup and creamery butter; $15).

The bread of this heavenly delight is tender and the slices cut thick as the aroma of warm cinnamon rises from the dish. I enjoy every bite with a generous helping of maple syrup. A cup of illy coffee ($5) rounds out the meal.

The service is fast and friendly as it should be at this time of night as only three other tables were occupied. But I liked that there is a hostess on duty and late night diners not pigeon-holed to one corner of the restaurant. The restaurant is open to the casino but banquettes serve as a perimeter for diners.

Click HERE for menu. The Henry is located on the casino level near the East Side Tower at the Cosmopolitan Las Vegas. Breakfast Mon-Fri 6am-11am; Brunch Sat-Sun 6am-3pm; Lunch Mon-Fri 11am-3pm; Dinner Mon-Sun 3pm-12am; Late Night Mon-Sun 12am-6am.
