franz ferdinand cocktail!

There are five things you need to know about The Third Man, our soon-to-be favorite haunt.

One, it’s not open yet. Two, it’s from the same team responsible for the perpetually buzzing Austrian restaurant, Edi & the Wolf. Three, it’s inspired by and decorated in the style of the postwar noir film of the same name. Four, we scored a boozy preview of the thrills to come from co-chef Eduard Frauneder. Five, beet everyone to it.
