The inspiration for Edi & the Wolf, a new downtown spot from Seäsonal partners and Viennese expats Eduard Frauneder and Wolfgang Ban, 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.
