Aamanns-Copenhagen's Wildly Creative Smorrebrod
Pate of pork with parsley, aquavit, fresh hazelnuts, pickled apples, celery, and watercress
Smorrebrod are little Danish open-face sandwiches made on a dark nutty rye bread. At Aamanns-Copenhagen -- New York's first Danish restaurant -- the bread is homemade twice daily, and the sandwiches have been transformed with startling juxtapositions of modern ingredients. Indeed, the sandwiches have become little sculptures, as these photos indicate.
