This eatery, located in the former commissary of the still-active Kaufman Astoria Studios, is a throwback to the moviemaker's glory days. The menu of American classics is conceptually interesting, and a few of the offerings, like the oysters Rockefeller and beef Stroganoff, make a case for totally passé eats. Unfortunately, owner Chris Vlacich fails to re-create the unbridled bliss of the Roaring '20s, largely due to the office-like décor. Some natural light filters in, but the subterranean space borders on depressing.
