For a city heavily settled by German immigrants, Baltimore has few German restaurants. Eichenkranz is the last outpost of hasenpfeffer and schweinkoteletten mit apfeln, not to mention four kinds of schnitzel. There's also the wurst platte with knockwurst, bratwurst, and baurenwurst. If you have a yen for such a sausagefest but your dining companions shy away from sauerbraten, Eichenkranz also serves up old-school items like lumpy crab cakes and fried soft-shell crabs, as well as steaks and chops, chicken, and pasta. The black forest cake and apple strudel are worth saving room for.
