The Restaurant:

Located in the heart of Battery Park City, Danny Meyer's North End Grill showcases Chef Eric Korsh's rustic, elemental French-inspired cooking infused with subtle smoke from the restaurant's wood-burning grills and mesquite charcoal ovens. The menu is complemented by a classic raw bar, house-made charcuterie, and seasonal produce from the restaurant's rooftop farm. North End Grill's wine list features classic and little-known wines, peppered with great value and older vintages. Over 150 bottlings of Scotch are available, by the taste or for the table, to accompany the flavors and aromas of smoke that characterize North End Grill.

The Grills:

North End Grill's menu is imbued with flavors of smoke from custom wood-burning grills and mesquite charcoal ovens, imported from Spain. The burning oak and mesquite create layers of flavor and produce the satisfying char that characterizes signature dishes like the Whole Free Range Chicken for Two.

The Scotch:

Showcasing over 150 single malt selections, North End Grill's Scotch list is noteworthy for its range and rare finds. Designed for tasting or deep exploration, the list offers a flexible format (ranging from just a “Nip" to the whole “Leg o' the Table"), and features uncommon selections from independent bottlers, long lost “ghost" distilleries, and other esoteric finds.
