Inspired by “Heuriger,” the casual, neighborhood taverns popular in Ban and Frauneder’s native Austria - Edi & The Wolf pays homage to tradition, inviting guests to experience “Gemütlichkeit,” or coziness, with wine and a spread of clafare.
Try the Franz cocktail before dinner and get the side of fries with the bacon aioli with it. For entrees I really enjoyed the squid ink pasta with a poached egg
Michelin-starred chefs bring their expertise in all things Austrian & Bavarian to the Thanksgiving table this year with a roasted duck w/ sweet potato puree, cranberries, roasted apples over wild rice
Would recommend the pork wiener schnitzel. The potato salad, lingonberry jam, and cucumber sides were delicious. The blaufränkisch was a good wine pairing.
The black risotto with scallops is wonderful and aesthetically pleasing. The lamb - great dish to have before a night out. Soft lighting and Cuban music in this german themed cute place.
Overgrown urban garden/garage/greenhouse,” and it serves some very good Austrian food: pickled veggies; cured pork belly; spatzle; steak; schlutzkrapfen (cheese and beet ravioli).
Maybe getting flatbread at an Austrian place is where I went wrong. Place is pretty--except for the broken lamp over my head-- but my dish was oily & the cheese & peaches combo made me a lil queasy
Try the amazingly cooked veal wiener schnitzel with a glass or two of perfectly chilled Austrian wine in this cozy festive restaurant.
If you are not here for brunch, come back for brunch. And then order the poached eggs w/ the pork belly. And then tweet me (@dens) to tell me how much it blew your mind.

This place was amazing. Our NYC friend chose it for a mini reunion and we had space to spread out and eat comfortably. Delish German food and amazing ambiance.
Grub Street off-menu dish: Duck Dinner. "Call ahead, and for $100, 4 people can tuck into an entire roasted duck. Sides include pretzel brioche and braised red cabbage."
Food was very good. Ordered a few dishes to share all of them were great. Spatzle was one of my favorite and I'm not a fan of fish but everyone loved the skate.
Bring a cute date here for a late dinner in the back garden. Make eyes at them over the liptauer cheese and hamachi shared plates. Wait for the inevitable romance.
The Walnut Old Fashion is amazing! I was away from the table when it arrived, and the smell of the drink caused my 3 travelling companions to help themselves.
fantastic wines, shnitzel and liptauer...go late at night. see photos from our meal here: http://www.facebook.com/album.php?aid=262357&id=765634189&l=ac6fd5cc22
So good. If you want fast food go get tacos and quit whining. Poached eggs, schnitzel and the ravioli. Top notch cheese plate and staff knows the wine menu well.
Bartender made us wait for a drink so she could make "fresh" grapefruit juice...left w a cigg and a lighter and came back with a bottle of Simply juice. Thanks!!
Really great place for a warm winter dinner or date. Best to share a few plates as there's a lot of great stuff: duck, schnitzel, sea bass.
Absolutely delicious. Great food, cozy atmosphere, fun decor. Get a cheese platter and go with the Ravioli or Duck (if its on the menu for the night).
This place is like a half burned candle. Gorgeous interior, warm and welcoming staff, amazing wine list. I'd spend an entire Sunday here...oh wait, I did.
Get the Squid Linguini with Uni Butter, Pickled Chili and Thai Basil. A side of Spätzle is also a good idea.
Incredible service, unusual selection of small plates, good for special occasions, get a couple cocktails and just keep ordering until you're full.
Consistently delicious awith great ambience. Unfortunately, today our waiter brought us a second round of drinks without asking, which seemed very shady.
Get here early! It tends to fill up fast after 7pm on Fridays and Saturdays. The pork belly and squid ink risotto are my favorites!
Great place to go if you're in a brunch rut and want something new and exciting. The staff is also very attentive and very sweet.
To say I was pleasantly surprised by the ribs is an understatement. Don't be shy, add them to your order.
Try the Cured Pork Belly with Horseradish and Apple. Want to make this recipe yourself? It is featured in"The Better Bacon Book" made just for iPads. http://oapub.co/9a4d0f5d
it may seem simple but the schnitzel really is the best (veal or pork). snag a spot in the backdoor patio if you can.
Delicious Austrian food. The duck is superb. Portions are small though so make sure to get an app and dessert.
Squid ink cavatelli with a poached egg and sea urchin. Duck with braised cabbage, apples, and parsnip puree. So good!
Village Voice is proud to welcome Edi & The Wolf to the 2014 Choice Eats food fest! http://bit.ly/1cRzdNV. Order the Schnitzel and you won't be let down.

Loved the short ribs main course, so delicious. Generous pour on wine by the glass, comfy/cozy atmosphere.
A favorite place- everything is good! Especially the ravioli, snizel, and dessert. Atmosphere and wines are all perfect
Always have a great experience here. The front room can be a little cramped, go for the patio out back.
Sadly a very disappointing Schnitzel or maybe I had my expectations too high. Apple strudel very good but the size was ridiculously small.
Spätzle!!! Flatbread! Ravioli, Arugula Salad, Smoked Mackarel everything was amazing. Great service and Excellent Wine
Sweet Baby Jesus, the duck here will blow your mind. Schnitzel is also pretty good. Splitty-split for best results.
