Wallflower is inconspicuous but no shrinking violet when it comes to lusty French food and strong drinks. The West Village space is small and the menu well edited: in the evening serving oysters, lobster salad with candied pistachios and chicken ballotine stuffed with chanterelles and black garlic jus. At brunch there's homemade pain perdu with drunken cream, nutella and strawberry jam along with comforting egg dishes and a great sandwich with tuna belly, olive tapenade and saffron aioli. It's a good place for a date or to catch up with a close friend, not designed for dining with a group.
