Northside Grill

Has anyone eaten at the Northside Grill on Kent Avenue
in Greenpoint/Williamsburg? We stopped there on our
way to another great meal at Planeat Thailand. Menu
was interesting but a little pricey for the area. It
would be worth it (nice river views and ambience) if
anyone can vouch for the food. We did have a nice meal
in the area recently at Seasons. The garden is
pleasant and service is terrific.

    Its Northside Cafe. I ate there on the 4th. The food
    was good, though the experience was not without its
    problems. (They had instituted a $40-50 prix fixe
    policy for the day, without notifying patrons when
    they made or confirmed their reservations. I managed
    to get out of this, but as revenge they sat us next to
    a woman with a voice like Judy Holiday, who was
    discussing coronary procedures and family problems
    with her husband. And there seemed to be construction
    going on on the floor above.)

      Alan, Thanks for the feedback. However, "good" isn't
      enough for me to spend $18 and up for main course. For
      that money, I would like very good. For example, that
      day we checked out Northside Cafe we ate at Planeat
      Thailand where for $8 per entree the food was terrific.

        I'd never claim it was a great value-for-money deal,
        just that the food didn't make matters worse. On the
        way over, I noticed Planeat Thailand was closed. I
        don't know whether they simply decided being open the
        night of the 4th was too much trouble, or if it was
        something more ominous.

          Agreed. We live 2 blocks away and never go there.
