The restaurant is named after a longtime Calgary icon Ten Foot Henry, who is quite literally a 10 foot replica of a famous 1930 comic strip character named Henry. This cartoon boy became a muse for Calgary’s creative community in the 1980s and this giant ten foot tall wooden mascot has been many places in his 40+ years since, including an underground night club and the iconic Night Gallery where he resided for the gallery’s entire 19 years of existence. With Ten Foot Henry the restaurant being on the lower level of the former Night Gallery, operating partners Stephen Smee and Aja Lapointe found it fitting to name the restaurant in his honour and for a time being, the original Ten Foot Henry even called this restaurant home before he was returned to the One Yellow Rabbit Theatre! Homages to Ten Foot Henry are found throughout the space, with a large mural of the cartoon boy painted at the entrance of the restaurant and with their 10-foot marble counter table that seats 10 people. Their New American cuisine is beautifully made and although the menu may be vegetable driven, they do offer a number of fish and meat dishes as well. Their dishes are all served family style, designed to share. We recommend their Maitake Mushrooms and their Brussels Sprouts that are served with ponzu, bonito flakes and crispy vermicelli as your go to vegetables. The Angus Striploin and Seared Scallops are must haves for the meat lover in your group.
