This high-concept spot draws its inspiration from the Scandinavian smorgasbord, constructing sandwiches to order out of such raw materials as pickled and otherwise cured fish, Swedish meatballs, tiny North Sea shrimp, and lobster. A roll-up made with the potato flatbread lefsa stuffed with your choice of five herrings (the mustard-pickled version goes especially well) was damn good, so was the open-face that featured lobster salad shot with tiny peas, flavored with fresh thyme. The black-and-white photos of the old country are good enough to make you dine in. For additional locations see the website:
