Here’s what’s hanging around outside of Zwiwwel (formerly Aria), a restaurant that, as of Jan. 9, is officially open for business and serving modern German cuisine. In our rush to find a German native somewhere in The Observer building who could tell us the definition of “Zwiwwel” — we thought, perhaps, it could mean “lion,” given the three newly painted lion head sculptures just outside the restaurant — we resorted to a Google search. The word actually means “onion.”
