Interesting decor; lots of wood and fishing trophies. Tiny non-smoking area (four tables) is sandwiched between smoking dinner tables and the bar. With the exception of unrefilled iced tea, the service was excellent--salad immediately following soup, main course whisked onto the table as soon as salads were finished. Cold foods were served cold, hot foods hot. As far as the food itself went, however... maybe it's just that a couple of Italian diners weren't quite in sync with the Germanic chef. Veal à la Holstein (a breaded veal with fried egg and anchovy) was tasty, but accompanied by plain, soggy spaetzle and some truly strange-tasting red cabbage whose sauce had run out into the plate to infiltrate the flavor of the veal. Shrimp Newburgh was served with a minimal quantity of strongly-flavored shrimp drowning in a truly odd sauce which bore little resemblance to any Newburgh sauce I've ever tasted. This place will not be on our "revisit list."
