Despite overpriced, middling food, this South Street Seaport bistro manages to reel in diners. Chef Darren Pettigrew (Nelson Blue) has compiled an appealing menu, but the results suggest a need for some more attention. A tasty braised lamb shank falls from the bone, but frites accompanying a $40 Dover sole were overcooked stumps. Decent? Sometimes. But no better than expensive pub grub.
