Residents in neighborhoods as overheated as Tribeca require an unfevered, unfabulous place to chill, too. Dekk might be that place, especially if combining a movie with a meal is your way of chilling. In a glassed-in screening room, the restaurant schedules weekly movies; two other screens in the main dining room show classics. It's a pretty good deal: voluminous drinks, simple fare, a wide selection of good wines by the glass, and a narrow, ironwork patio suitable for dawdling. Mediterranean food is the proclaimed culinary theme here, but the menu is actually a mix of post-Italian-American and Asian fusion; in execution, that generally means diner-style abundance. Sometimes it also means a heavy hand with sauces and dressings: Fresh and plentiful salads can be sopping wet, and such dishes as shrimp risotto and roast duck may swim in salty reductions. Grilled dishes are handled best. Charred and peppery calamari pair well with a spicy arrabiata dipping sauce, and a Caesar salad topped with grilled chicken is garlicky and creamy. Dekk's main room has an old New York feel, with creaky floors, comfortable wooden benches, and a roomy, rectangular bar that anchors the space; the downstairs lounge takes on private parties and cocktail swirlers.Brunch
