South Florida foodies who miss Fort Lauderdale's original gastropub burger bar, Rok:Brgr, are in for a treat.
Since the restaurant closed up shop from its original location in the city's Himmarshee Village, anyone craving a good craft burger has been hard-pressed to find a worthy alternative — until now.
Handcrafted Hospitality owner Marc Falsetto, the man behind the original concept, is brining back the Rok's all-time favorites with a new menu available exclusively at Henry’s Sandwich Station in the FATVillage Arts District.
When Falsetto opened the sandwich shop, he threw down the gauntlet for those seeking sandwich supremacy in the 954. Shortly after opening its doors, Henry’s – named after famous Floridian Henry Flagler – was able to cement its reputation for mastering the art and science of handheld eats with its array of classic and contemporary, made-from-scratch sandwiches.
Fancy a French Dip? Craving a BLT? Looking for a classic — or truffle-infused — or Philly Cheesesteak? They're all on the menu at Henry’s Sandwich Station.
And, starting this week, they're supported by an all-star lineup of hamburgers with the launch of the shop's new burger bar menu.
Start with the original ROK Burger, topped with cheddar, smoked bacon, caramelized onions, and bourbon BBQ sauce. If you aren't into meat, the new Impossible Burger – a vegan patty with avocado, tomato, arugula, and a spicy Vegenaise — will hit the spot.
The quintet of offerings also includes a classic Double Cheeseburger with Henry’s special sauce on a brioche bun; a Truffle Burger with Swiss cheese, mushrooms, caramelized onions and truffle aioli; the all-time favorite Morning Glory – a juicy patty topped with American cheese, smoked bacon, and a fried egg.
Just don't forget the fries. Since day one, Henry's has featured its French Fry bar menu, a selection with everything from Maryland-style Beach Fries with Old Bay seasoning and Henry’s Poutine topped with cheese curds and brown gravy to Salt & Vinegar served with garlic aioli and Garlic Pesto with truffle aioli.
Beyond burgers, fries and sandwiches Henry’s also offers an array of freshly made soups, salads, sweets from The Bake Shop and an all-day breakfast menu including, naturally, killer breakfast sandwiches.
