Time Out says
Apparently Eduard Frauneder’s New Year’s resolution was to expand his Austrian empire in 2016—the Michelin-starred chef behind East Village tavern Edi & the Wolf and cocktail bar the Third Man debuted Freud, a Viennese café in Greenwich Village, this February, and now he’s following that up with this FiDi bistro named after the former Austrian currency. It’s a rustic 70-seat room fitted with Thonet chairs, a reclaimed barnwood ceiling and glass-paneled garage doors, and like at its sister restaurants, modern takes on Frauneder’s native cuisine dominate the menu: The spaetzle is dressed with Gruyère and crispy spring onions; a young chicken comes with roasted maitakes and a sourdough-bread salad; and traditional streusel tops panna cotta with blueberry compote. Drinks also zoom in on Central Europe, with German beers, Austrian wines and cocktails from the Third Man team, including the Vienna Morning (Byrrh Grand Quinquina, prosecco, mint).
