Austrian chef Kurt Gutenbrunner's Upholstery Store is scheduled to reopen its doors on September 12, 2014 after a six month renovation period. The restaurant is brand-new in both concept and design, and merely has a name relative to the former space. Upholstery Store: Food and Wine celebrates its historical West Village architecture while drawing inspiration from early 20th century design as well as personal and contemporary elements that speak to Kurt and Leo's Austrian heritage. The restaurant shows the influence of an eclectic array of design visionaries, including, but not limited to, Hoffmann, Moser, Thonet, and Loos. This can be found specifically in our coffered ceilings, leather banquettes, bentwood chairs, marble tables, mirrors, and artwork.
In terms of wines, Partner and KG-NY Wine Director Leo Schneemann carefully selected fine wines from Germany, Austria, the United States, France, and Spain for Upholstery Store: Food and Wine's unique beverage menu. The organic and biodynamic wines, known for their quality, are being offered at reasonable prices by the glass and poured out of magnums.
