Dina, Louis & Henry Bronson

Bistro Henry is the story of Henry and Dina Bronson, who have put their talents together for the second time in Manchester, Vermont. They met in the kitchens of Manhattan’s finest restaurants and brought their dream to Vermont in 1988, when they opened Dina’s. After four successful years, their search for greener pastures and desire to spend more time with their infant daughter, Talia, brought them to the decision to close Dina’s in October 1992.

As fortune would have it, rather than reopen Dina’s, in 1993 they found the perfect spot for Bistro Henry—a restaurant for today.

Drawing on nearly 20 years experience (including 1½ years living and eating in France) Henry has put together a new steak and seafood menu with favorites for carnivores, ichthyophages and gourmands alike.

Dina makes incredible custom cakes, collaborates on the menu, expertly guides the service staff and creates the exquisite desserts – including the finest Crème Brulée anywhere.
