Scandinavian/Nordic restaurant Smørbrød is now open in the Lincoln Center.
TAPAteria/Pizzeria Rustica owner Jay Gust's new Nordic digs, Smørbrød
, will soon open in the Lincoln Center. On June 6 and 7, they'll have reservation-only seating, before a general opening on Friday, June 8.
Recently, Gust and his team invited a few Indy
staffers to take part in a press preview dinner, sampling a selection of his offerings. We were thoroughly pleased with what was on display, from the smørbrøda to the desserts to house aquavit infusions and more. We'll of course do a full, formal review later.
Our only regret: We lacked the foresight to photograph our favorite dish of the evening, a rich and fantastic seafood stew flavored with curry. During the dinner, Gust noted that friends and industry members polished off every drop they'd made for a family-and-friends preview night some days before — yes, in the dead of summer.
Check out the rest of our photos and notes on what we sampled below, in advance of the opening. Skål!
