Take only a few steps past Wallsé’s sidewalk tables, and you’ll be at the Upholstery Store, Wallsé chef and owner Kurt Gutenbrunner’s storage room–cum–wine bar. Like so many of its kind (Peasant, Terroir), the Upholstery Store is romantic and rustic, packing dark wood furnishings, black-and-white Clifford Ross photos, and, yes, upholstery fabric, which hangs from the walls. Past the bar are six two-top tables simply adorned with a candle and a small basin of sea salt; a back room with a full-size dining table and wooden banquette allows a larger group to convene. The wine list is almost exclusively Austrian--as is the bar menu, which includes Gutenbrunner’s Austrian-inspired bar snacks with smorgasbord-style dishes of  creamy cheeses, nuts, and mixed olives, all with complimentary sliced French bread served in a crumpled brown bag.
