Nothing impresses other men like slaughtering exotic beasts and turning them into footstools -- so it's a shame that safaris are generally so inconveniently located. To eat the next best thing, hit Henry's End's "Wild Game Festival", starting Friday.
Each year, the WGF plates up a rotating selection of eight animals too ferocious/poor to be found in Brooklyn Heights. For big game grubbers there're options like Antelope Au Poivre, Reindeer in bourbon sour cherry sauce, Buffalo Rib Eye, and Ragout of Wild Boar -- all creatures you've earned the right to feast on, thanks to assassin-level prowess at Big Buck Hunter Pro. Bird lovers can go with Pheasant Ravioli or Peppered Ostrich (as spicy as it is flightless), while reptivores get BBQ Rattlesnake Salad or soup made with New Orleans bayou turtles -- caught as they naughtily poked out their heads to win beads.
Henry's accepts reservations for two on major holidays, but otherwise only offers tables for three or more -- an exotic dining policy that ensures the observance of that basic huntsman's rule, safety in awkward numbers.
