Manhattan - Edi & the Wolf
New Austrian Wine Tavern by Seäsonal partners and Viennese expats Eduard Frauneder (aka Edi) and Wolfgang Ban (the Wolf).
What New York Magazine wrote about it:
"The inspiration for Edi & the Wolf, a new downtown spot from is the traditional eastern Austrian wine tavern known as a Heuriger. Ban defines this type of establishment as “a very rustic restaurant usually connected to a winery that serves very simple dishes,” and although his new spot lacks the requisite winery, it does feature an extensive array of Central European varieties like Riesling, Rotgipfler, and Grüner Veltliner.
Accompanying them are plates of classic Austrian comfort food, from pork schnitzel and pickled sardines to variously topped flatbreads baked in a pizza oven installed by the previous tenant. As for the space, designed by architect Philipp Haemmerle, it’s as handsome and rustic as Alphabet City Heurigerscome, with a pair of Victorian military boots turned into flower vases and some 40-odd feet of old rope, salvaged from a church bell tower and artfully looped above the distressed-copper bar"
