What’s in a name? If you’re the East Village Yacht Club, pretty much everything. Amid the last vestiges of the neighborhood’s grime—Mars Bar, the grossest dive this side of Tijuana, is half a block away—this two-storied, tripartite club (bar-restaurant-lounge) tries extremely hard, and generally succeeds, at approximating that lakeshore vibe right down to a simulated sunset. White-painted brick walls are the norm on both floors where seafaring paraphernalia greets you at every turn: framed drawings of ships, model boats in glass cases, and triangular racing flags on the winding staircase. Though it feels a bit like an afterthought, the menu acquits itself nicely enough if you keep it light via flaky, airy lobster crêpes or an almost sweet mini Gruyère-cheeseburgers; the heavier entrées like steak-frites and roasted chicken are reliable more than remarkable.
