The far-flung menu at this airy Harlem eatery, which features selections from France, Morocco, the Caribbean, East Asia and the Southern U.S., should please every palate. Steak au poivre is properly punchy, grilled Atlantic salmon is slathered in tomato butter, and basil-curry chicken is at once spicy and sweet. Tuck into lush sweet-potato cheesecake for dessert and get an eyeful of passersby through floor-to-ceiling windows that face the street.
