Good things come in small packages—especially Boston’s newest wine bar. Haley.Henry, opening Friday in Downtown Crossing, is the brainchild of Barbara Lynch Gruppo alum Haley Fortier and comes cozy with seating only for 26. Inspired by tiny wine bars of Paris and Barcelona, Fortier keeps the theme alive with her Old World wine list and menu focused on tinned fish. This salty treat is a favorite bar bite in the likes of Portugal and Spain and is so much more than the sardines you might expect.
At Haley.Henry, patrons can expect to find such offerings as mussels, razor clams, octopus, and more presented in a simple tin. The menu also features charcuterie and cheese boards, rotating toasts, and even crudo and ceviche. Fortier told Boston magazine, “I want to be a wine bar with education.” With a wine list of 40-50 vintages, she certainly has plenty of material to educate us with!
