A wolf in the east village
Not so long ago the east village was a scary place to go, now it has a lively culinary life of its own. EDI AND THE WOLF is a charming Austrian place at 7th street and Avenue C. The decor is rustic and a bit kitchy. Start with Austrian flatbread – especially the one with figs - or the spicy landjäger sausage. The baby back ribs in honey, beer and mustard are fantastic. Then tuck into the weiner schnitzel - lightly breaded and flattened pork or veal served with potato salad and lingonberries. There's a crisp cornish hen with cabbage, and don't miss the spaetzle a delicious and under-utilized Teutonic pasta (Austria is right next to Italy after all). The wine list is good and service is charming. EDI AND THE WOLF is a true delight.
