The Nest is for Everyone

Nicholas, Kevin Jr., Dodi,and Tyler Henry

The Nest has been a beloved establishment in the valley since 1965, and it’s not difficult to see why. The restaurant boasts a fresh, contemporary atmosphere, excellent service, and a menu that blends Mediterranean and Californian cuisine. There is also a lively bar scene complete with talented local performers. In 2010 Dodi and Kevin Henry took over as owners and have since dedicated themselves to caring for their guests with passion and enthusiasm. 


Dodi Henry, who was born and raised in Bosnia, embodies the American Dream of achieving success through hard work. She arrived in the United States as a young girl to work in her Uncle’s restaurant. Despite the challenges of being in a new country, she attended College of the Desert and worked her way up in local restaurants. During those years she learned how to care for the unique desert clientele, many of whom she now calls friends. With her sons by her side at The Nest, she’s continuing to build a legacy that will attract the younger generation.


The menu at The Nest offers contemporary dishes, including gluten-free and vegetarian options, while also featuring classic favorites such as escargot, and sole piccata. Dodi’s European heritage along with the Adriatic Sea is also well-represented, with dishes like Mom’s Stuffed Cabbage Rolls, Spinach Knish, Goulash, Moussaka, and homemade sausage (cevapcici) being featured on the menu. Whether you’re a regular or a first-time guest, The Nest has something for everyone to enjoy.
