The menu reads like an omnivore's list of favorite foods—fried calamari, lamb schnitzel, seared tuna niçoise salad, ricotta gnocchi, vegetable bibimbap and four cuts of steak—but somehow it works. Families will feel welcome here, and not just because the acoustics drown out even a colicky baby's wails, or because the menu is loaded with kid fare like mac and cheese and spaghetti carbonara. We'll be back for the beer-battered string beans and, for dessert, the Pink Pussy Cat (one of eight sundaes)—an intoxicating mix of red-velvet cake, strawberry ice cream, fresh strawberries and whipped cream.
