Profile

Xavier Herit, who for seven years served as the head bartender at Daniel, now brings his experience to Wallflower, a 45-seat cocktail bar and restaurant that he sees filling a Cheers-esque gap in West Village neighborhood spots. "At Daniel people were barely past the door of the restaurant, and their glass of wine was already on the bar," Herit says. "But here is a secret: I’m much better at remembering the drinks they had two weeks ago than remembering their names."

Herit's 12-cocktail menu is designed to please: There's the Look, No Hands (Herit's take on a Left Hand), made with Rittenhouse rye, cacao nib-infused Campari, and PX sherry, and the Bora Bora Sizzle (Pierre Ferrand 1840 Cognac, chai, apricot, pineapple, and lemon). As for food, the French-leaning menu comes courtesy of Ezra Lewis. Alongside cheese plates, you'll find small shareable dishes such as game-bird and foie gras terrine; tuna tartare crostini; and roasted pork chops with honey.

Both food and drink menus will be overhauled seasonally, giving Herit even more opportunities to learn your name.
