Devour Luscious Schnitzel At Lower Manhattan’s Destination Austrian Spot Schilling
It seems like every day brings more good news of Downtown bars and restaurants that are once again welcoming in-person visitors. Case in point: the glorious return of Schilling and its signature menu of Austrian classics with a Mediterranean flair.
Schilling has previously been open for takeout and delivery, but is now open with a revamped dine-in menu as well, including chef Eduard Frauneder’s seasonal, intriguing asparagus schnitzel (it’s healthy because it’s vegetables!), some rich kaesekrainer sausage (to cancel out the asparagus) and a classic rendition of a more traditional wiener schnitzel, replete with cucumber dill salad, potato salad and lingonberry.
Frauneder’s menu also includes crispy emmenthaler (translation: fine dining’s version of fried cheese), pickled cauliflower, smoked trout tartare and an assortment of craft cocktails, like the Hemingway Daiquiri, that seem expressly designed to sip as you soak in the warm weather and watch the city come back to life.
