North End Grill
New York, NY 10282
Village Voice's Description
Having previously run Danny Meyer's haute Indian restaurant Tabla for 12 years, Floyd Cardoz helms the kitchen. You'll find the occasional exotic spice used here, too, but while that Madison Avenue eatery surprised and delighted with every bite, this one plays it safe and occasionally bores. Certain dishes blew us away. Cornmeal-battered cod throats—a heart-shaped cut of the fish rarely seen in New York—roost over a meunière sauce that's miles better than the rustic lemon-parsley-brown-butter treatment common in French bistros. Grilled sardines are also top-notch, and a lightly spiced soup illustrates the underappreciated affinity of crab and pumpkin.
Tips from foursquare
Good news: remember the time you ate cod throats on a dare? Floyd Cardoz and Danny Meyer have redeemed you at their new seafood restaurant in Battery Park City, North End Grill.
That the bacon-, apple- & lime-adorned raw fluke for lunch is so delicious is certainly no fluke....it has Bacon!
The menu is eclectic and includes an eggs section and appetizers such as raw fluke with bacon, apples and lime and cod throats, a bit on the salty side.
Butterscotch pot de creme.
Danny Meyer's restaurant, with Floyd Cardoz (formerly of Tabla) in the kitchen, has single-handedly brought fine dining to Battery Park City.
