Less than two weeks ago, it was announced that Floyd Cardoz was leaving his post at Danny Meyer's Battery Park City restaurant North End Grill in order to focus on a number of personal culinary projects. Cardoz will be replaced by Eric Korsh, who, along with wife and co-chef Ginevra Iverson, led the kitchen at Calliope until the end of January. In an announcement, Meyer praised Korsh's "gutsy and soulful cooking" at the East Village restaurant. Union Square Hospitality Group notes that Korsh will take a few weeks to get the hang of the kitchen, along with its charcoal grills and wood-burning ovens, and the Times reports the chef's "official debut" is May 1.
