I Can be Austrian | Edi & The Wolf


"Food says a lot about someone's country. I've never had Austrian food before but if this is indicator of what Austria is like, than I am so game."

Food says a lot about someone's country. I've never had Austrian food before but if this is indicator of what Austria is like, than I am so game. This quaint and earthy spot in East Village is the perfect spot to make up for my friend's missed birthday. We both had gave up drinking for awhile and so we did not get a chance to try one of their well known drafts *insert sad face* but their food made me forget the fact that I was depriving myself. Chanting, "self-will" in my head. Whether you just want something light or heavy, Edi & The Wolf has all those options for you. I went for the lighter options and ordered the Asparagus Salad as an appetizer, followed up by the Arctic Char. It was so simple, yet packed with flavor. I was so impressed with the dynamic flavors in the salad. Then the crispy skin and texture of the fish just really sealed the deal for me. Of course, I couldn't resist a few bites from my friend's plate. Nothing disappointed. Ever. He was very hungry (borderline, hangry). The baby back ribs were very pretty to look at and just as pleasant to eat. I've never had a Schnitzel before and I may have been spoiled with this one. I can't say that I can compare it to any other schnitzels, but this dish peaked my interest. 

All in all, I will likely return, especially when I can fit beer back in my diet.
