Once home to Kuhinya, this tiny neighborhood spot has the same owners, but sports a broader menu that features grilled chicken breast and burgers vying for attention with pasta, crêpes and smoked salmon. Large portions mean you don’t need to order two courses, except to linger in the stylish, dimly-lit dining room. Plump mussels in a creamy saffron broth with crispy herb fries are comforting, though the food falters when trying too hard: Beautiful salad leaves piled with thinly sliced green apple are undone by the olive-paste–smothered duck confit that rests on top.
