Xavier Herit, who for seven years served as the head bartender at Daniel, 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 Tijuana Two Step (Herit’s twist on a Paloma), made with yuzu, basil, and pink peppercorn and the La Louisiane (rye whiskey, sweet vermouth, Bénédictine, absinthe and Peychaud’s bitters). On the food side, you'll find shareable plates like oysters with apple-cucumber vinaigrette, dandelion toast with lemon ricotta and mushroom relish, and sea scallops with red quinoa and baby leeks, dressed in a squid ink vinaigrette."

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