North End Grill (Eric Korsh, n=1)

Noticably different style from Floyd Cardoz, but quality and service remain high.

Very few items from old menu remain. Clam pizza still there, short rib burger only available by request, but now also served in main dining room. Dessert menu completely different; Tracy Obolsky had initially kept the lemon meringue pie and pot de creme from her predecesor, but those are now gone.

Kitchen is more overtly lively; lotsa shouts of "walking" and "how many minutes on that Tomahawk" whereas previous regime was almost Lincoln Center caliber quiet.

Had the potted crab (very subtle spicy seasoning), head-on prawns (with juicy heads), black sea bass with cockles and leeks, the burger (thrice spiced fries replaced with duck fat fries). All seafood cooked perfectly; side of corn ($7!) delicately touched by thyme. We also received an amuse of beef carpaccio with anchovies, capers and micro greens.

As before, great, if pricey, choice for the Tribeca/FiDi area. Still not sure if it is a destination restaurant, but we'd go at least once a month if I could afford it!
