Streamlined restaurants that look transplanted straight from Chelsea or Tribeca may be making a buzz in Brooklyn, but this longtime Heights hangout has no Manhattan-transfer aspirations. With its ramshackle mixture of sponge-painted, nougat-colored walls, exposed brick and crowded-together black tables, Henry’s End feels like what it is: a neighborhood joint, serving a laid-back local crowd. But the food (and prices) aim a little loftier than you might expect—this is Brooklyn Heights, after all. Instead of burgers and beer, the lengthy menu proffers meat, and lots of it, in seventies-style preparations like half duckling with raspberry sauce, and a juicy steak Diane, served with side saucers of rice pilaf and green beans. Desserts suit the mood: a booze-laced mud pie (and a non-alcoholic version), chocolate mousse, and warm apple cobbler. In the fall and winter, the specials focus on game.Prix-Fixe Dinner
