7. Whole Roasted Duck, Edi & the Wolf
When asked about the one must-try dish at their restaurant, Edi & the Wolf’s Michelin-starred chefs, Eduard Frauneder and Wolfgang Ban, highlighted the whole roasted duck, which is available only if patrons pre-order it 24-hours in advance. “It’s a Long Island Peking duck, whole roasted with apples, oranges, and marjoram,” said Frauneder about the dish to Eater New York. “It’s served with a celery root puree, Brussels sprouts, bacon, and roasted apples, and then the whole thing is taken apart in the kitchen.”
The $100 meal can feed four to six people, so make sure to bring along a crew for this family-style dinner. In addition to the famed duck, this Alphabet City restaurant, located on 102 Avenue C, is known for its authentic Austrian cuisine and rustic atmosphere, which is reminiscent of a cottage.
