What is a Heuriger?:
In Austria, heurigers are an integral part of Viennese life. Friends gather to enjoy the casual atmosphere, to drink new wine from mugs and to share hearty, satisfying heuriger food served family-style. Dano's on Seneca recreates this atmosphere in a beautiful new building designed by architect Andrea Simitch. With spectacular views of Seneca lake, the rotating menu features Viennese spreads and artisanal breads, salads, roasted and smoked meats, vegetable dishes, homemade sausages, fresh seafood, homemade pickles and preserves as well as Viennese pastries. A traditional heuriger wine will be made exclusively for the restaurant by Standing Stone Vineyards in 2006. The wine list consists of an ever-changing selection of local wines.

A Unique Way of Ordering Food
How to order at a Heuriger: Heurigers offer a flexible option to traditional restaurants. Food is ordered a la carte. Many items can be viewed at the display counter. Customers may order all at once or order slowly. Additional food can be requested as the meal progresses. (during peak dining hours we ask customers to give us their complete order to ensure timely service.) Waiters can take orders at the table, they serve your food as well as take drink and dessert orders. Sharing is encouraged so customers have the opportunity to sample the many flavors of our cuisine. More traditional appetizer and entree options are available in the form of daily specials. Parties of 6 -9 have the option to chose the "Chef's Table" which consisits of a large variety of our offerings served family style . Groups of 10 or more require a reservation and a Chef's Table will be arranged.
