NYC East Village: Edi and the Wolf

Edi and the Wolf

102 Avenue C
212.598.1040

You walk in and it’s breathtaking. A wonderland of sorts, dripping with foliage among rustic wooden tables and ceilings dimly lit between the cracks. An Austrian haven, reminiscent of a cozy cabin I’d like to retreat to after a treacherous day on the slopes. Well, I don’t ski but after a long day of dipping in and out of East Village dive bars I was certainly happy to find this gem.

A tall glass of Weihenstephan Hefeweizen is in order. The Alsatian Flatbread was sweet and savory. It was sprinkled with farmer’s cheese, gruyere, parmesan, crème fraiche, cippolinis, spinach, apples, herbs, speck, and horseradish. A lot of components in each bite, tasting like a gift from the Alpine Gods. The Spätzle was rich with wild mushrooms and brussels sprouts.

After a tall beer and two shared plates, I was plenty full. The staff was attentive and personable, with a 5-star atmosphere and food that certainly tastes of Michelin Star Chef quality thanks to Eduard Frauneder and Wolfgang Ban. I know there's much more to explore on the menu so I'll be back for a full dinner soon, or perhaps, a weekend brunch.
