Henry’s End is a neighborhood spot that's been around for decades, and it sort of looks like a dive bar. Granted, it’s a cleaner than a dive, and they serve veal four different ways. This is the sort of place that’s about one paint job, one new set of china, and one Vinegar Hill House alum away from being featured on the cover of Bon Appetit. We doubt any of that will happen, however, so stop by the next time your aunt’s in town and she wants to eat somewhat fancy food in Brooklyn Heights.
