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.

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.
