North End Grill - New York, NY

From the company that brought you Union Square Cafe and Gramercy Tavern comes this Hudson River-adjacent, American bar and grill from Danny Meyer's Union Square Hospitality Group. In the kitchen is 2011 Top Chef-winner, Floyd Cardoz, who cooked up classics at Tabla, which closed in 2010 after 12 years of putting its stamp on Indian cuisine. Like Tabla, North End Grill has infinite creativity at work on its daily-changing menu. Witness clever concoctions such as the Coddled Egg with Peekytoe Crab, the bacon shrimp burger and thrice-fried spiced fries. There's also a wall of Scotch, which dramatically showcases the restaurant's fondness for the drink.

Opened: January 2012
