Eichenkranz in Baltimore

Whitemarshjohn | Apr 5, 2008 07:53 PM

We had dinner at Eichenkranz in Baltimore this evening - I've heard that they are the only German restaurant in Baltimore and I haven't been there in over a dozen years. Overall I felt it was a good value. We started out splitting an appetizer which consisted of 4 spinach and cheese filled pastries in a tomato sauce. I thought it was good, but my Fiance wasn't wild about it (more for me to eat!). I had wiener schnitzel with lemon and capers as my entree which seemed ok - I don't have a wide basis for comparison since I haven't had wiener schnitzel in at least a dozen years. My Fiance had sesame crusted orange roughy with ginger butter which we thought was cooked just right and very tasty. The sides were good too - we both had a baked potato and I had sauerkraut and she had broccoli which was cooked the way she liked. I had a beer (room temperature like the Germans drink) and a soda and my Fiance drank ice tea. We split a huge chocolate cake ice cream sundae for dessert and both had coffee (which was also good) and the check was only $41. The decor/atmosphere is neat and clean but sort of plain - it's a pretty casual place. The Servers seemed nice enough, but the service leaves a little to be desired, but that's the way I remembered it being years ago. I would recommend them if you're in the area and I'd like to go back to try the potroast (which was actually a special) or the rabbit.
