The spectacular view at Zak Pelaccio's new restaurant threatens to overwhelm the food--there you are seated on the window-intensive third floor of the hotel that sunders Seventh and Broadway on the north end of Times Square, and it feels like you'll be sunburned by the million-watt signs. The cooking is flashy, too, including a memorable dish of wiry Hong Kong noodles and barbecued pork (char siew) in an engagingly sweet dressing, and the considerably less memorable underdressed watercress and asian pear salad. Also in the positive category: chicken wings with fried curry leaves, and lamb loin hot pot.
