Danny Meyer's seafood-oriented restaurant in Battery Park City, North End Grill, is now open for lunch according to Eater. It'll begin serving dinner in another few weeks. Wondering if anyone has tried / will be trying it out?

Chef Floyd Cardoz's menu looks very appealing to me. I hope to get to this place for dinner in the near future.
Article on the restaurant on WWD.com with photos of the interior: http://www.wwd.com/eye/food/feast-for... . I like how there's counter seating right in front of the kitchen.
'Cardoz studies his menu, which holds offerings like Cod Throats Meuniére, slow-poached egg with California caviar, a grilled clam pizza and a bacon-shrimp burger with spice-dusted fries. “It’s going to be seasonal, it’s going to change,” Cardoz continues. “Yesterday I had snapper on the menu, today I have black bass. Whatever my fish guy tells me, ‘I got this today, it’s great,’ I use it. I’m not cooking on high heat, which is what for the most part we do [in the U.S.]: high heat, sear it, get a thick crust, get a char on it and that’s it. I’m going gentler, easier, you know, make the ingredients speak for themselves.” '
