At husband-and-wife Sean Lowenthal and Deborah Schwartz-Lowenthal's new Eagle Rock restaurant, the menu is brief and familiar: 11 small plates, including both a charcuterie plate and a cheese board, and six entrees. Many of the small plates are salads, which can be either pleasing in their simplicity or a tad dispiriting. The burrata and peaches, served with arugula, basil and balsamic vinegar, is a quiet testament to the bounty of the season. On the other hand, watermelon with feta was too straightforward, a (small) step above the cubed watermelon you might bring on a picnic in Tupperware. Yes, there's crumbled feta atop the cubes, and some radish slices, but nothing to distinguish it from very basic snack food. You're better off ordering something requiring a little more finesse — the wild salmon tartare, for instance, which is a bit of a throwback dish but tasty nonetheless. —Besha Rodell
