From the killer scotch selection to the raw bar and floor-to-ceiling windows looking out onto the surrounding neighborhood, North End Grill is one of best new arrivals to the culinary scene. Still not convinced? How about bacon and oysters, clam pizza, grilled octopus, or sea scallops. What’s more, Chef Floyd Cardoz took his love for cooking eggs to a whole other level, dedicating an entire section of the menu to egg dishes, like coddled eggs with peekytoe crab or a lobster omelet. There’s a terrific pork bacon and fried oyster appetizer, beautifully charred clam pizza, pork chop and grilled octopus.
