    This unique Danish spot makes for a really interesting, romantic date night. Don't miss the Aquavit, Bacon & Hay, Seared Fluke, or Roasted Cauliflower. Read about my visit on WinstonWanders below! Read more

    Expect open-faced sandwiches with toppings like braised pork breast, beef tartare with homemade potato crisps, & pork paté. Add to that more homemade aquavit, seafood specials like sugar-salted salmon Read more

    You'll find unique varieties of akvavit (aquavit), a traditional Scandinavian spirit that dates back to the 15th century. Some of our favorites are the beet, with its deep red color, and pear.

    TT: A placid, white-tiled oasis of Danish cool smack in the middle of Canal Street/Tribeca madness. Specials, from 4 to 7 p.m. daily, include $5 meatballs and $5 Evil Twin Low Life on draught.

    The vibe is very, well, Copenhagen. Service is just plain NYC. If you're in, try the bartender's recommendations and you can't go wrong. They do have great strong drinks.

    Smorrebrod, Danish. The juxtapositions can be mind-boggling, with cured fish, mustard, sour cream, dill, pickled vegetables, and cranberry sauce occupying the same tiny, teetering sandwich

    Somebody please stamp my passport! I was instantly transported to Denmark with delicious delicacies and gorgeous staff. I can't wait to return for the rest of the food and beverage menu!

    Specializing in Danish smorrebrod (small plates and open-faced sandwiches), spoon pickled herring and tomato compote over dense rye bread. Daters be warned: it’s a breath killing delight.

    Adam Aamann, a former colleague of the Nordic food prophet Claus Meyer, is widely credited with reinventing the traditional open-faced sandwiches known as smørrebrød.

    One of the best Bloody Mary's I've had in a long time!! The one with ramp infused Aquavit has an amazing potent flavor.

    Awesome service (unexpectedly)! Also, the Danish food rocks. Be prepared to be given free shots of akvavit with each dish... Arrive tørstig

    Make sure to sip, or ignore our warning and knock back, the Aquavit while munching on little smorrebrod (aka open-faced sandwiches).

    The food was very good. Surprisingly not much foot traffic. +1 for Home made Scandinavian breads.

    this avocado, pickled green tomato & daikon crûdité smørrebrød is both gorgeous & delectable

    Order the cheese plate as it is delicious, but charging $1 for extra bread when they don't give you enough to begin with is very poor form.

    Service just okay. And it way too long to get the bill. Food was good, though portions on the small side considering the price. Beef tartare and duck particularly delicious.

    The dinner menu is less Danish than the lunch menu and it's sadly mediocre and over-priced food for the portion size. My friends and I will not be back. The only good thing was the fig aquavit.

    One entry + desert should be enough. Otherwise you will feel too full.

    SOFA KING SLOW... SOFA KING SLOW.... SOFA KING SLOW - turtles mate faster than this place makes food. I read war and peace between the time we ordered and our lunch showed up

    The food is pretty good but this is hands-down THE most irritating restaurant in NYC. Laughably incompetent staff, officious attitude, and that awful, pretentious Euro/Tribeca clientele.

    Feel a cold coming on? The coriander-infused Aquavit will knock that right out.

    So bland. Forgot to put in our order. Slow service. Don't get the pork belly. It doesn't taste like pork belly.

    Cold, uninspired "Scandinavian" food can be found here. Skip, and opt for a warmer atmosphere at the nearby Locanda Verde.
