Henrietta’s Table

Where else but in the sunny confines of this Charles Hotel restaurant could you expect to find such a large collection of Nobel Prize-winners huddled under one roof? Breakfasting regularly at Henrietta’s Table are MIT and Harvard professors noshing side-by-side with dotcommers and other high-level business executives. Why do they come here? The dining room is easygoing, the waiters are friendly without being obsequious, and the fare, from omelets and country bacon to fresh fruit smoothies, is fresh, healthy, and reasonably priced.
