This family-friendly offshoot of a 20-year-old Great Neck bakery joins Mike’s Bistro and Fine and Schapiro on the Upper West Side’s most kosher block. Too bad the food—standard Italian dairy fare like salads, pastas and fish—tastes so generic. Eggplant rollatini was tasty but uninspired, and cold mozzarella cubes and warm haricots verts clashed in a pesto farfalle. Several seating areas make it versatile—there’s a sidewalk terrace, a garden room and a romantic exposed-brick dining area. But given the gourmet kosher cuisine available in New York, our advice is to skip the meal and order one of its signature desserts, like the tri-level cake with rich layers of caramel, chocolate and vanilla mousse.
