The impressively long Cruvinet (holding 125 wines available by the glass) is the most memorable feature of a pleasant, generic restaurant geared towards the neighborhood’s hordes of shoppers. The ’90s-sounding menu has something for everyone: hummus, salads, pizzas, pastas, burgers, sushi, even dim sum. About the only nod to today is a section of Atkins-friendly entrées and a few dishes made with kobe beef, including a hefty burger. A cobb salad with avocado and blue cheese spills off the plate; a lamb burger, cooked longer than requested, was juicy and flavorful nonetheless. Stick with the simple stuff and avoid the pastas, which can be overcooked and gloppily sauced.
