Edi & the Wolf
Photograph: Paul Wagtouicz

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.

Came to this spot with a bunch of friends who were visiting from out of town and it was perfect. Not impossible to get a reservation for a larger group (10) on a Friday night, but it was still bustling and full of energy. It is in an ideal neighborhood for grabbing drinks afterwards too. The interior is adorable, think rustic cottage, and the Garden seating is even more quaint and open year round! The fare is Austrian so think hearty, meaty meals (for the most part) which is usually not my jam, but they had an asparagus ravoli dish that was light and refreshing. Food is solid, beers are awesome, but its the space and atmosphere that is the real draw here.
