ERIC KORSH EXECUTIVE CHEF
As Executive Chef of North End Grill, Eric Korsh deftly crafts rustic cuisine with classic technique and a lively use of ingredients in Lower Manhattan's Battery Park City.
Originally from Long Island, NY, Korsh entered the hospitality industry in 9th grade as a dishwasher at a Japanese restaurant and then as a line cook at a local diner. Following his graduation from Hobart College, he cooked in Boston for a time before landing a Saucier position at Terrance Brennan's flagship restaurant Picholine, where he refined his skill at tasting and learned technique. From there, Korsh cooked at restaurants throughout New York City, including Prune and Aretsky's Patroon.
Ready for a fresh experience and to build something new, in 2008 Korsh decided to open his own restaurant. He moved across the country to Sebastopol, CA and opened Restaurant Eloise, a 60-seat eatery with traditional French fare named after Kay Thompson's iconic children's book protagonist. One year later, Star Chefs named Korsh 2009 Rising Star Napa Sonoma and San Francisco magazine anointed him Rising Star of 2009.
In late 2009, Korsh returned to New York City, where he soon became Executive Chef of The Waverly Inn and received acclaim for the nuanced, classic style he applied to the restaurant's seasonal American comfort food. After two years, Korsh jumped back into ownership, opening the European bistro Calliope, which was named one of '12 Restaurant Triumphs of 2012' by the New York Times. In April 2014, Korsh was named Executive Chef of North End Grill.

So it's refreshing to find some honesty from Eric Korsh, head chef of North End Grill.
One of the many restaurants under the Danny Meyer empire, the three-year-old grill has a few major distinctions. The one most heavily publicized are the kitchen's wood burning grills and dangerously hot mesquite charcoal ovens (there's a reason why "grill" is in the restaurant's name). But the other, not noted anywhere on their website, is a rooftop garden that's put to work growing food that might otherwise be hard to find.
Though Korsh is still in his first year at the Grill, he's already made some changes to the garden's philosophy. When he arrived, he says there were maybe "29 things growing in small batches.
...
"We grow fewer things and a lot of them," Korsh says. Yet they still can't grow enough to feed their thousands of customers 100 percent local. (He says that in the summer the restaurant menu is probably between five and fifteen percent roof-grown.)
On a typical day, the North End Grill might go through six cases of Boston lettuce and another twelve cases of red oak lettuce. To put it more simply, Korsh says, "If we planted the entire garden with red oak, it would last us one day."
Their garden may not supply all of their hyper-local cuisine but by planting smartly, Korsh and pastry chef Tracy Obolsky have managed to bring new flavors to the menu.
...
Korsh seems to also have two particular favorites in the garden. One is aji dulce peppers, or sweet and stocky chilies that are perfect for pickling. They pack a mild heat and light smokiness that make them the perfect accompaniment to fresh fish crudos. They are also very hard to source. The situation is similar with the uncommon herb savory which tastes a bit like a cross between rosemary and mint. "It's one of my favorite herbs of all time," Korsh says. Even if he were to order it, the herb would likely be wilted and old by the time it arrives "because no one else is buying it," according to Korsh.
There are so many restaurants in NYC that it's hard for chefs to differentiate one menu from another. As Korsh puts it, "All the same ingredients are available to everyone. Yet by tinkering in hyper-local gardening twenty stories above the restaurant, he can attempt to add some memorable ingredients to the menu. For him, local is all about the quality of the food. "Anybody who's serious about eating and cooking realizes that with every second from harvest to the time you eat it, that vegetable's quality decreases," Korsh adds. He admits that it may also be more cost effective in the long term to grow strawberries on the roof rather than buying them but that it's more about the freshness than financials.
The reason you're unlikely to hear more about the North End Grill's garden is because Korsh feels its size is so small compared to the volume of food they serve. "I don't want to pose as something we're not," he says, adding, "We're not the Blue Hill of Battery Park City.
...
But Korsh seems to have a firm grasp both on gardening's hazards and its rewards. He explains, "Proximity to your food is a turn on - plain and simple."

North End Grill's Eric Korsh in The Wall Street Journal | April 8, 2015
CALLIOPE VETERAN ERIC KORSH IN AT NORTH END GRILL by GREG MORABITO Eric Korsh, previously of Calliope and The Waverly Inn, will be the new executive chef at Union Square Hospitality Group's North End Grill. Last week, Floyd Cardoz announced that he was stepping down from the executive position that he held for two years to pursue other projects apart from Danny Meyer and USHG. In an announcement about the staff change, Meyer notes: I was a huge fan of Eric's gutsy and soulful cooking at Calliope...He's a dedicated working chef whose greatest days lie ahead of him, and he will be a wonderful colleague for our team at North End Grill. It's going to be a lot of fun to introduce his cooking to an even broader audience once he hits his stride. Korsh and his wife/culinary partner Ginevra Iverson left Calliope in the East Village back in January.
