About 20 km out of the city are many towns that have conserved some of their historic flare.
We went to Kalb'sches Haus in Reinheim.
The building was erected 1450 and is the oldest building in town. It was part of a complex with started in 1276. The house is beside the church and was used by the priests, later as a museum and since several years for events and as a small restaurant.
We were lucky to get a table since we did not have a reservation. The restaurant we wanted to go originally cancelled our reservation due to sick owners.
We had a nice salad as a starter. That was a good idea, the main course took long to arrive.
I ate Frankfurt Schnitzel with lots of good herby sauce. The recipe for this Hessian classic is on the blog.
My friend had beef rouladen, in Italian called involtini. Her husband had a grilled pork knuckle with sauerkraut and dumplings.
Food quality was very good and we all enjoyed it.
