Eiderdown Restaurant Review

: An inviting wall-length bar and symmetric rows of rustic wooden tables fill the interior of Eiderdown’s historic red-brick corner building. Add the impressive international draft beer selection and you’ll start to feel the Gemütlichkeit seep into your bones. The menu is an interesting mix of updated German and Southern flavors. Duck fat popcorn (lovely with beer) is popped to order. Equally fine is the trio of pretzel sticks served with a choice of mustards. On the Euro side, you’ll find venison osso buco and duck confit. Interestingly, the spätzle-based entrée is vegetarian, made with okra, sauerkraut and goat cheese. The Kentucky country ham entrée is given a German accent with the addition of Hefeweizen mustard. Other dishes of note include a kielbasa served with sweet-and-sour cabbage, and mussels with turnips and fingerling potatoes. Lovers of fried dough need to finish with the fresh lemon cruller with raspberry pudding. Prefer wine with your meal? For the adventurous, the list presents good Rieslings, a Gewürztraminer and Grüner Veltliner, even a sekt (German sparkling wine) and an Austrian red blend.
