North End Grill

North End Grill, Danny Meyer's newest restaurant has finally opened to complete Battery Park City's trifecta (Blue Smoke, Shake Shack, and North End Grill). The space itself is awesome and I have a feeling its gonna kill it. With Shake Shack already bringing in tons of business, Blue Smoke and North End Grill will be great for the area. Being that the kitchen and front of house are still finding there stride, I will just post some pictures. I will say that I had some good food there and the service is shaping up to be nothing less than expected from Meyer. Chef Floyd Cardoz takes the reigns in the kitchen, which is the centerpiece of the restaurant. The beautiful open kitchen is on display and adds to the spaces "wow factor". I'm sure N.E.G. will be a destination spot--not just for the bankers in the area; but for people everywhere. Chef Cardoz is still reveling in his Top Chef Masters title and will be looking to put out food that tops Tablas. I look forward to seeing N.E.G. grow and become one of NYC's great restaurants. They don't have their liquor license yet but its coming soon! They have an eclectic wine list and a very impressive scotch program.
