Henry started his adventure in Denmark while studying at the Copenhagen Technical University. He worked as a sous chef for many restaurants to make extra income during university.
In 1995, he moved to the US and opened his first restaurant in Westminster, offering signature recipes to diners eager for original dishes crafted from quality ingredients.
This first restaurant, Capone’s Pasta and Pizza, was so successful that customers were waiting in long lines just to try the food they’d heard so much about. After 13 months, Henry opened a second location in Huntington Beach (Capone’s Cucina) that was equally successful.
Despite all the commercial success, Henry was driven to further expand his culinary prowess, so he sold the business to his brother and returned to Europe for more education and experience.
Since returning to the US, Henry has drawn on his international training to bring Truffle Bistro’s signature Tapas style to the City of Orange. Having settled here in Orange to raise a family, he continues to delight existing and new customers with superlative dishes at Truffle Bistro.
Henry has spent much of his life traveling throughout Europe honing his skills as a restaurateur. He enjoys the cuisine of every continent and holds a special place in his heart for classic Italian and Mediterranean fare.
Truffle Bistro is Henry’s expression of a lifelong goal of presenting warm, fresh and flavorful Mediterranean food to the city of Orange.
