The still-glittery Da Silvano has drawn crowds since 1975, but this annex (formerly Da Silvano Cantinetta) is virtually empty. We can see why. The uninspiring meatcentric menu includes drab starters like the tomato “royale,” made with mushy tomatoes, balsamic vinegar and basil. The red meat that followed was even more of an embarrassment. An anemic hanger steak with lumpy mashed potatoes and a generic tangle of mesclun was rescued only by the Gorgonzola melted on top. Despite the pedigree, this is a restaurant still in search of its soul.
