Maybe you can say you’re adventurous and sampled some wild boar or perhaps some wild buffalo steaks. What about Kangaroo? What about Elk? What about all the above in one night! Well, you can have the whole hunter’s feast for the rest of March over at Henry’s End famous Wild Game Festival. No need to gear up and head upstate to the backwoods, Henry’s End is just steps away from the landing of the Brooklyn Bridge and at the edge of Brooklyn Heights and Dumbo.
Henry’s End also has a great selection of wine pairings so if you want to sample and truly have a feast you can check out the $25 Fixe Prix menu (Mon-Thu) which includes an appetizer, entrée and dessert and for an extra $14 you get wine pairings with all three dishes. I tried the one with the Wild Boar Ragout. I started with a pair of massive Maryland style Corn Crab Cakes stuffed with spicy cayenne spice, scallions and served with a side of tartar sauce. I forget the wine but it was a sweet Riesling from upstate that was perfect with the heavy tartar and deep fried batter of the crab cakes. Next was the entrée: Wild Boar Ragout. Served in a deep and wide bowl, the large chunks of tender boar meat in a sweet and spicy tomato sauce with a truffled polenta definitely made a very hearty meal perfect for a cold spring night. Finished with the Mud Pie which is a blend of coffee and chocolate ice cream laced with Kahlua and espresso on an Oreo cookie crust topped with hot fudge sauce. Yeah, don’t know what else to say about that but that it was obviously awesome.
If you don’t make it for Henry’s End Wild Game Festival in time, I’d also recommend the Honey and Ginger Duckling. At Henry’s End they braise the ducks in their natural juices to retain the flavor and tenderness. The meat is deboned and the skin is broiled to a crisp. Maybe not as exotic as Kangaroo or Wild boar, but who cares – it’s great!!
