What kind of different techniques there are to expose for glass reflections?

You can see in the clip that the backlight on the actor is maybe two stops over or more, to create a reflection in the glass that looks about one-stop under.
This is a scenario where actually the video tap image from the film camera, no matter how crappy it is, can tell you whether you are getting a good balance for a reflection gag.

I'd be interested to know what kind of a setup you would need to expose for night scenes like that. Any ideas?
It's a rather complicated lighting set-up. The store interior is mainly by its practical lamps with a added few spots, maybe something like Tweenies (650w) or smaller, the backlight on the lead that creates the reflection could be a semi-spotted 1K tungsten. But the streets & buildings themselves are lit with a lot of big units hidden behind buildings and whatnot.
