North End Grill features Chef Emily Brekke’s love for rustic, traditional wood-fired cooking. The menu, inspired by the flavors of Italy, offers hand-rolled pasta, steaks, chops, game, and seafood cooked simply on the restaurant’s wood-burning grills. Located in the north end of Battery Park City, North End Grill sources much of its seasonal produce and herbs from its rooftop garden, 15 stories above the restaurant. To complement Chef Brekke’s comforting and soulful food, North End Grill’s wine list shines its light on the classic regions of Italy.

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 is rich in selections from the classic regions of Italy, featuring wines from both traditional and emerging producers, with outstanding values. The ever-evolving list offers a rotating selection of wines by the glass, alongside seasonal cocktails, craft beer, and Scotch.
