Profile

Wallflower, a pretty new French café in the West Village from a former Daniel bartender and Maison Premiere chef, tries to be both a cocktail bar and full-fledged, 45-seat restaurant. It certainly succeeds at the former: Drinks like the gin-based Betty Draper and carbonated Tete de Mule (gin, ginger syrup, and mint and green teas) are so delightful that you'll order at least three. But Wallflower functions best as a drinks-and-bites kind of spot, rather than a place to sit down for a complete meal. Cheese plates are creamy and sweet (ricotta comes studded with golden raisins), and oysters and crudo plates are nice and light. But when it comes to bigger entrees, like the Maine lobster with autumn vegetables, the food can fall flat — especially considering that all entrees are in the high $20s. (The lobster came drowned in a creamy sauce, and it was hard to make out any seasonal vegetables.) Make this your before-dinner or after-dinner go-to: In the evening, after a long night of drinking, the foie-gras sandwich with quince morstada will hit the spot.
