Sorry, don't get it. Husband and I took friends out there tonight because it was supposedly husband of friend couple's favorite. Potato pancakes: 4 smallish cakes of shredded potatoes, deep fried. Of course they were crisp--basically we were paying $8.50 for a half-order of fries. They had no real flavor outside of that. Reibekuchen should be potatoes gently crisped in a pan. That is, there should be some work done by the chef besides dumping a pre-made pattie in a deep fryer. Husband's steak was fatty and the requested medium rare was rare. And with fries that were Reibekuchen, just not shredded and not crisp. I tasted the Weinershnitzel: at $18 very expensive chicken fried veal with no discernable veal taste. I could go on... But husband demanding his Komputer back and mine's upstairs.
