Reading native, Judy Henry, is the chef-owner and presides over daily operations like a proud mother hen. Henry has been the toast of the area restaurant scene since the summer of 2002 when she opened the southern European themed, Judy’s on Cherry. Before opening her own restaurants, Henry had made a name for herself with innovative cooking at The Peanut Bar and Restaurant, another local area landmark. Judy says she hopes
“her unique restaurant gives people a reason to come back to downtown. We offer a one of a kind urban fine dining experience that the ‘burbs simply don’t have.”
Judy’s is conveniently located just two blocks from the Sovereign Center, 4 blocks from the Goggle Works and three blocks from The Sovereign Performing Arts Center in downtown Reading.
