European-inspired cuisine gets the refined, seasonal treatment at this tiny agri-chic eatery on the Upper West Side. Parents gravitate toward roasted locally grown beets with toasted pecans and goat cheese ($10) and oven-baked salmon with baby spinach and Granny Smith apples ($24), while kids are happy with a simple grass-fed-beef cheeseburger ($13).
