Cox is a long place with many rooms on different levels. The white cloth covered tables are additionally covered with paper tops and large paper napkins. Nice bench seating lines various walls for the closely set tables to pair with wood chairs. Jazz music plays in the background and empty dark wine bottles are used as wall decorations. Windows to the street are on one end of the room and wall sconces provide plenty of light for the tables set further back in the restaurant. They serve traditional German food and at lunch have a changing daily special and an a la carte menu. Portions were generous but not to the point they stuffed you.
Tables were served sliced white bread with a good crust and dense interior. The tasty butter was quite hard and cold.
We started with a salad of artic shrimp, melon, ginger and sesame cream. The tasty salad was nicely dressed and loaded with small shrimp. The sweet melon blended nicely with onions, red peppers and slightly spiced tomatoes. There was a pleasant hint of ginger to the flavor and I’d call it well seasoned. A winner.
Saddle of pork steak with walnut crust was served with savoy cabbage and fried potatoes. The fried potatoes were cut in half and roasted to a delicious finish. The cabbage was underneath with onion, pepper, garlic and tomato. The meat was not cooked very pink but was still fairly moist and tender. It was a well flavored plate of food and the meat gravy brought out all the other ingredients.
Baked Plaice fillet was served with pumpkin-potato curry and Thai basil. The fish had been lightly fried and came in a delightful curry sauce with orange potatoes and tomatoes. It was topped with micro greens and basil leaves. There was some red pepper in the dish which gave it a good spice. A lovely combination.
We ended with a plate of raw milk cheese with fig mustard and fruit bread. The cheeses were blue, camembert, and Austrian alpine hard cheese. Alongside were seeds, grapes, a tasty fig mustard, and housemade fruit nut bread that was warm and lightly toasted. It was a good finish for a nice meal.
