We went to Sascha's because of the interesting menu provided for restaurant week. It's location on Charles St. 1/2 block south of the Washington Memorial plaza is easy to get to. Inside , the ceilings are 20 or 30 feet, interesting artwork abounds and the whole effect is great.
The menu is eclectic, but approachable. Every item made me want to try it. For 1st course we had the asparagus salad with duck prosciutto and the short rib with jicama-orange slaw, and I was disappointed that we didn't get 4 different things because I wanted to try everything. For the 2nd course we had the filet, the salmon, the gnocchi and the pork chop. Each has such a long list of interesting and inventive ingredients and accompaniments that you would be better off reading their menu on line than me trying to describe them here. They were all very good. For dessert we had the Italian budino pudding, the carrot cake and the chocolate mousse, all very enjoyable.
The menu changes frequently according to the waitress, but there is always a filet, some pork, a vegetarian entree, salmon and chicken. I put 5 points for value since we were there on the restaurant week for the $30 dinner menu, it is more expensive regularly- but not crazily so.
We intermittently watch the cooking competition shows and think it would be great to have inventive chefs in Baltimore. Well we do, at Sascha's. Each choice was interesting, inventive and enjoyable. We will go back.
