AAA Inspector Notes
The tavern takes its name from Henry Lee, a soldier who attracted the admiration of Gen. George Washington through his adroit horsemanship that earned him the nickname "Light Horse Harry." Centuries later, urban diners beat a path to the beautiful, lovingly restored dining room for terrific food—from a sublime saffron-infused fisherman's stew or blissful lobster paella to a fine-aged New York sirloin or for modern twists on familiar pasta dishes. This is a fine downtown eatery. On weeknights there is entertainment, with piano and guitar instrumentalists.
