Chef Kurt Gutenbrunner's restaurant-bar, named after his Austrian hometown of WallsA(c), is admittedly more restaurant than bar. Quaintly elegant and chic, the cozy space is filled with tables and banquettes that engulf the centralized baraperhaps a deliberate design to entice bargoers to sample Gutenbrunner's oeuvre of personalized Austrian delicacies. Still, those strictly eyeing the drinks will feel pleasantly at home. Apart from a lengthy list of wines, WallsA(c) features a handful of cocktails that shifts emphasis each season (fall, for example, will play with Cuvee Klimt, an Austrian sparkling wine, and with apples, pears, and other seasonal fruits like elderberry). The most distinct of the bunch is the Lemon Grass ($9), a refreshing take on the mojito that, in lieu of mint, places its focus on the flavor of citrus (Absolut Citron, lemongrass, Kaffir lime, and lemon juice), thereby granting it the smooth, lightweight taste of a vodka lemonade, minus the tart. Zum Wohl!
