I've been around the New York restaurant scene for more than 30 years and few names come up with as much respect and affection as that of Floyd Cardoz. I couldn't believe I never met him until I went to North End Grill a few days ago to celebrate the birthday of a great friend.
The bacon-shrimp burger -- thanks to the wood, the smoke, the flame -- tastes like a campground. There's a salty crust, and the creamy interior is sprinkled with red pepper flakes.
