Smorgas Chef Restaurants serves fresh Scandinavian food based on centuries of Danish, Norwegian, and Swedish culinary traditions. The first location was established on historic Stone Street in the Financial District as a modest sandwich shop, which grew into a full-service restaurant and bar. As its popularity grew in the city, Smorgas Chef added 2 more locations, one in the West Village, and one on Park Avenue in the Scandinavia House Cultural Center. Most recently, Smorgas Chef opened its fourth restaurant - Crepes Du Nord, a French-Scandinavian Creperie on South William Street in the Financial District. Scandinavian cooking, with its focus on fresh unprocessed ingredients, vibrant herbs and delicate flavors, is gaining more attention around the world. Unique ingredients from Scandinavia such as cloudberries, herring, and lingonberries are regularly featured on Smorgas Chef’s seasonally driven menu.
