At their midtown restaurant Seäsonal, chefs Eduard Frauneder ("Edi") and Wolfgang Ban ("the Wolf") put a fine-dining spin on the flavors of their native Austria. The pair revisit the motherland once again at this sophomore project, a cozy neighborhood tavern deep in Alphabet City. Simple dishes like a freekah grain salad with pears, radish and Vermont cheddar, and beer-and-honey-glazed baby-back ribs populate the menu; the dining room plays up the rustic feel with salvaged-wood ceiling beams, a distressed copper bar, and antique Victorian military boots standing in for flower vases.
