Edi & the Wolf

102 Ave. C New York, NY 10009 | Alphabet City | 212-598-1040

Location Description:

Waltz into this new Alphabet City Austrian eatery from chef/owners Eduard Frauneder ("Edi") and Wolfgang Ban ("Wolf"), who also own Midtown"s Seasonal. The fare is generally impressive, not to mention pig-friendly. Standouts include the landjäger (dried sausage) and sliced pork belly ribbons, though you can get your schnitzel on, too, because what Austrian restaurant doesn"t serve those fried cutlets? However, it"s the quirky décor and buzzy ambiance that are the real draws: Think farmhouse tavern (or heuriger, as the Viennese would say) meets crazy grandma's attic. It"s undeniably theatrical, but actually pretty cool. It's the sort of spot with which to impress a first date who likes to keep up on the trends.
