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.

Bar San Miguel
A Carroll Gardens Mexican bar and restaurant, owned by Jim Cramer from CNBC. Surprisingly, it is entirely devoid of yelling. It's pretty damn good, too.
Gran Electrica serves simple, excellent Mexican food and creative cocktails without any gimmicks and a great back patio.
La Isla Cuchifritos
We love La Isla Cuchifritos for the fact that a) it’s cheap and delicious, and b) it sort of feels like you’re grubbing in tropical Puerto Rico rather than not-so-tropical Brooklyn.
