Located in the heart of Battery Park City, Danny Meyer's North End Grill showcases Chef Emily Brekke's rustic, elemental French-inspired cooking infused with subtle smoke from the restaurant's wood-burning grills. 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, and has been recognized by Wine Spectator with a Best of Award of Excellence. 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 Danny Meyer restaurant you don't know about - but should." — Bloomberg
"Danny Meyer's... jewel is like a lighthouse for Battery Park City & FiDi." — Eater


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


North End Grill’s wine list features classic wines from both traditional and emerging producers, with a focus on older vintages and outstanding values. The ever-evolving list spans classic winegrowing regions with particular depth in northern California and France, and offers a rotating selection of wines by the glass in a flexible format for tasting or sharing. In celebration of the restaurant’s relationships with winemakers, North End Grill hosts pairing dinners to showcase special wines alongside Chef Emily Brekke’s rustic, farmhouse-style cooking. Perhaps most notably, over 150 bottlings of rare and unique Scotch are available, by the taste or for the table, to accompany the flavors and aromas of smoke from the restaurant’s woodburning grills.
