Went here recently for some Gruner V. with Austrian foods and found instead menu chaos. Restaurant is apparently in transition to a Greek menu. Nothing wrong with Greek food except when you want Austrian. Unfortunately, the new owner and Maitre'd seemed to view the change...More

Seasonal has been our favorite restaurant in New York for the last few years. Its refined Austrian cooking and excellent Austrian wines were a standing reminder of why it has a Michelin star. We may have to rethink our choice. The restaurant has a new...More

Over the years together, Wolfgang Ban and Eduard Frauneder have perfected their own modern take on Austrian cuisine - one which combines traditional techniques, contemporary innovations, and updates to some of their favorite childhood dishes. The team behind the prestigious private catering group, Elderberry Catering, chefs Ban and Frauneder, together with a small group of investors, have opened Seasonal Restaurant & Weinbar, their first venture open to the public. Their goal is to provide elegant home-cooking in a sleek but welcoming setting. The chefs at Seasonal pride themselves on maintaining the utmost quality in their cuisine, and therefore, consistent with its name, the kitchen uses only the freshest seasonal ingredients. The visual presentation of each plate is the final step in the process, and the chefs have ensured that the look of each plate matches the refinement of the food itself and the decor, creating an unforgettable dining experience.
