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. 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

THE GRILLS:

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.

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.

He gained experience at several other acclaimed New York City restaurants before moving across the country to Sebastopol, California in 2008.

In 2009, Korsh returned to New York City, where he soon became Executive Chef of the Waverly Inn.
