Well-known Chef Erick Harcey makes Swedish food cool. Honestly everything I ate here was fantastic, especially the Swedish Meatballs. The service might be the best I’ve experienced in a long time, and the cocktails were fabulous. The atmosphere is different, not necessarily in a bad way, but I wished it was a little more cozy to go along with the type of food I was eating. I plan to return here with my Swedish family members and for brunch. They have amazing Gravlox, a Nordic dish consisting of raw salmon, cured in salt, sugar and dill, served on a piece of toast with butter. It’s fantastic!
