North End Grill [brunch]

North End Grill has quickly become one of my favorite spots for brunch in Manhattan. I tried a few new items this time around: maple-bacon croissants (pure bacon-y, buttery heaven!), steak hash with eggs (perfect sunny-side up eggs and juicy, diced steak), and bucatini pasta with pulled short ribs and cotija cheese (hearty and meaty), along with my two go-to favorites: hamachi sashimi with blood orange and pickled ginger and the grilled clam pizza with chili flakes. Both were nothing less than spectacular, as always! What a great way to start a lazy Sunday. :)  Next up on my list of “must try” meals: the Sunday Family Dinner (only $38 per person). Can’t wait!
