Seäsonal Restaurant and Weinbar
Seäsonal Restaurant and Weinbar Review
Partners and executive chefs Wolfgang Ban and Eduard Frauneder have brought something neu to Midtown: a swanky Austrian-German restaurant and Weinbar. With its sculptural ceiling lighting, elliptical bar, and contemporary Austrian and German art, Seäsonal feels more "downtown" than you'd expect from such central Midtown digs. The cuisine is sophisticated and contemporary, yet still steeped in regional traditions. Appetizers like the foie-gras terrine and the cheese ravioli with smoked chanterelle mushrooms delight with their contrasting lightness and intensity of flavor. Mains, such as the pumpkin seed–crusted black sea bass with butternut squash and black truffles, and the classic Wiener schnitzel served with a crescent potato-cucumber salad, will definitely please your palate. Seäsonal's Weinbar features a distinctive selection of wines from emerging Austrian and German winemakers.
