MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View
This is as much an Austrian heuriger (wine tavern) that one can find in New York. While the menu has some modern and creative elements, the décor is comprised of wood planks and thick coils of rope for an attractively barn-like feel. That cozy and disheveled character makes you forget where you are—same goes for the superb list of German and Austrian wines. On warm days, head to the equally pleasing and tiny back patio. Most everyone knows to go for the schnitzel, served with potato salad, cucumbers and lingonberries. Still, you won't go wrong with a host of rustic small plates like crisped Brussels sprouts tossed in pork ragout with scallions and pickled mustard seeds, or perhaps roasted beets with pickled walnuts, walnut milk and dill.
