About the Dish
At NYC's beloved Austrian tavern, Edi & the Wolf, Michelin-starred chef/co-owners Eduard Frauneder and Wolfgang Ban offer cuisine inspired by Edi's upbringing in his father's bakery in Vienna. While this dish remains a brunch favorite at their casual tavern in the East Village, the chefs also offer a dessert version at their midtown fine-dining institution, Seasonal Restaurant & Weinbar.
