Day 787 : Edi and the Wolf

Disclaimer - I rarely venture down to Alphabet City, granted it used to be my old stomping grounds but these days I just simply don't tend to get that far east unless there is a specific reason and Edi & the Wolf is definitely a reason to make the trek. An Austrian themed wine bar and restaurant with a warm and cozy vibe, it's a great place to have a drink and a nibble with friends. Lively and inviting yet not too loud and overwelming -- the perfect blend for a Saturday eve.

Being a big fan of Austrian wines, it's been on my radar since it opened. Last night a bunch of us stopped in for a glass of Zweigelt and a bite. Standing in the dark bar area, you definitely felt as though you were in a small European town at the popular local restaurant, not on Avenue C in Manhattan.

What did we have with the beverages?

How about their Alsatian flatbread? Very very thin crust topped with farmer's cheese, gruyere, parmesan, cippolinis and spinach was light, flavorful, and perfect with a glass of Zweigelt.

Next time I will have to try more of their food, but this was a good start! Definitely worth going in for a drink and some food.
