Having grown up in the Bronx, and perhaps best known for writing and starring in A Bronx Tale, actor Chazz Palminteri has a close affinity for the New York City borough. So, it only seemed natural for him to team up with Baltimore restaurateurs Sergio and Alessandro Vitale and bring a little bit of the Bronx to Harbor East. First, they tackled Bronx-style pizza by equipping their restaurant with a coal-fired oven. Then they rounded out the menu with dishes often found on Arthur Avenue, one of the Bronx's main culinary strips. They hark back to Chazz’s home with pan-seared cuts of filet mignon and handmade pastas such as gnocchi in brandy-cream sauce. Cocktails tangle together juices squeezed fresh daily, brandy-soaked cherries, and syrups made in house, and the extensive wine list pairs with cannoli, ending meals smoothly, unlike a carpenter who just has to show off how strong his table is.
Café Einstein's chefs wield German roots, Swedish roots, formal training in Italy, and fresh, seasonal ingredients to create a weekly rotating menu of European fare that earned accolades such as "a work of genius" from the Baltimore Guide. Culinary journeys begin when diners strap on their tongues' fanny packs, sit amid exposed-brick walls and sconce lighting, and explore bites of appetizers such as the spinach frittata infused with smoked salmon ($9.95). Dinner entrees then take to the tables in shapes that may include edible skyscrapers of lasagna bolognese, in which a hand-minced, browned sirloin steak mingles with a homemade sauce of fresh tomatoes, carrot, organic milk, and onion ($15.95), and a meat-free version that piles up cheese and seasonal vegetables ($14.95). Diners can bisect the day with lunch bites of the curry wurst, a german frankfurter served with curry ketchup and a fresh-made pretzel roll ($8.95), or the pancake sushi, a savory german crêpe stuffed with spinach and cheese ($8.95). Desserts end meals with a sweet note and offer quarreling knights post-treaty bites to feed each other, with selections such as the black-forest cake, with rich chocolate, cherries, whipped cream, and Kirsch liqueur.
