With all of the hype leading up to the opening of Danny Meyer and Floyd Cardoz’s new Battery Park City eatery, North End Grill, there’s one thing you probably didn’t realize. That some of the duo’s most interesting flavor combinations can’t be ordered in the dining room.
A personal-size pizza is topped with crunchy bacon crumbles — the real stuff, not bacon bits made of fabricated chemicals. But the brilliance is in the condiment. Shmear the provided peanut butter onto each slice for a topping that would make Elvis swoon, and could convince an Upper East Sider to traverse the subway system to this former food-no-man’s-land for a hot Saturday night.
