You sense just looking at the menu that this may be a downtown restaurant that's trying to do too much, trying to be too many things for too many people: cheese, charcuterie, pizza ("or flatbread, the way you wish to call them," according to the menu), small plates, large plates, $90 steak for two, raw oysters, sliders, pasta, Thai curry mussels, Spanish calamari, octopus with kimchi, uni with oxtail and congee. I'd like to say that in chef Remi Lauvand's capable hands, this schizophrenic approach works, that each dish comes into its own, allowing you to have whatever meal you wandered in the door vaguely hoping for, be it far-out Asian, steak and potatoes, or classic French. But that's not quite the case. Which is a pity, because when Lauvand is on, he's really on. --Besha Rodell
