Ode to a Sandwich - Henry's Pub, Loveland CO

Henry's Pub

Pardon me while I wax lyrical about a sandwich.

Henry'sOn Tuesday, I took my brother, who is visiting from Los Angeles, up to Rocky Mountain National Park. It was a perfect day - warm, blue skies, and too early for the hordes of tourists who flock there during the summer months. And on the way back, we stopped for a late lunch in Loveland CO, at Henry's Pub.

As we sat there looking at the menu, one item caught my eye:

Prosciutto & Fried Egg Sandwich: Thinly sliced Prosciutto di Parma topped with crispy fried leeks, tomato, basil mayonnaise, and a fried egg, served on grilled sourdough bread.

Hmmm. That wasn't at all what I had in mind when we walked in, but for some reason, it sounded like just what I wanted. And it was not only what I wanted - it was what I needed.

There's nothing very romantic or special about the idea of a sandwich* - some various stuff and seasoning between a couple of pieces of bread - and most places will approach making a sandwich exactly that way. But not Henry's Pub. Whoever constructed my sandwich really cared about what he was doing - it was the most perfectly built sandwich I've ever had - the bread was perfectly grilled, the egg perfectly fried, the crispy leeks amazingly tasty, and the ingredients were carefully placed and in just the right quantities and were all at their peaks of perfection for eating. And it was delicious - maybe the best sandwich I've ever eaten.

And I wasn't surprised - every time I've been to Henry's, I've had a happy eating experience. The food has always been wonderful, the wait staff attentive and pleasant, and the ambiance comfortable. It's a regular stop whenever we find ourselves in historic downtown Loveland. Next time you're in in the area, give it a try - you'll be delighted and your senses will thank you.
