Wallse: A Refined Take on Austrian Comfort Food

Wallse’s signature appetizer – the spatzle

The atmosphere of Wallse, one of Chef Kurt Gutenbrunner’s Michelin-starred ventures, exactly matches that of its surrounding neighborhood. With its elegant facade and the refined simplicity of its decor, Wallse perfectly blends into the quiet charm of West Village’s winding cobblestone streets.

Even on a Tuesday night, Wallse quickly livened up with the chatter of sharply dressed diners and soothing indie-folk pop. Although the restaurant does have the dress code and the impeccable service of an upscale establishment, it doesn’t possess the fussiness or pretension. Although it’s pricier (entrees run from $25-36), Wallse’s dynamic menu and relaxed elegance make it the perfect place to splurge on a special someone or celebrate a significant date.

Amy Eats…at Prune

With 2012 just around the corner, it’s about time to reward yourself for all the hard work you’ve done this year. Treat yourself to an amazing meal at Prune. This restaurant is definitely my all time favorite restaurant in New York City. I have yet to find anything that I don’t like about this homey restaurant in East Village.

I originally learned about Prune from an episode of Anthony Bourdain’s No Reservations. I was so intrigued by the casual and intimate atmosphere of the restaurant. My mouth watered as Bourdain and his friends sat at the bar, drinking and eating dishes like bone marrow and the Grilled Head-On Shrimp. I decided to make the trip down to East Village.

Entrees average about $26 and appetizers average about $10. As you glance through the menu, you’ll probably be quite surprised by the types of food Chef Gabrielle Hamilton carefully selects. Her dishes are innovative, fresh and comforting- definitely worth your money for a delicious meal!
