Finding a nice little restaurant in FiDi is almost unheard of, but then there’s Schilling. Schilling serves Austrian comfort food like spaetzle with Mediterranean cameos like a fluke and tomatillo ceviche. It’s run by the same people behind Edi & the Wolf and Freud, and feels quiet and intimate without taking itself too seriously. The best part about Schilling is that it lives in the sweet spot on the Venn diagram of restaurants where you could bring a date or a dad and they’d be able to find something they like while actually being able to hear your theories on the rise of bitcoin. All in all, Schilling is on the expensive side for its portions, but it’s good for a nice, casual dinner that’s sponsored by finance and non-finance salaries alike.
