Swedish Stuff

g

I'm looking for Swedish stuff anywhere in the Bay Area--in particular:

1) a restaurant that serves Swedish-style cod with dill

2) meatballs

3) game

4) pastry heavy on the cardamom

Any ideas that don't include the word IKEA?

      Bistro Elan is Palo Alto has a Swedish chef. Sometimes there area few Swedish-inflected dishes on the menu.

          Bear in mind that the cuisine is principally French. Also more sophisticated than the "bistro" moniker.

        My Swedish friends go to Nordic House (the link given by Scott M above includes the address) on Telegraph just about next door to Neldam's bakery for stuff like cloudberry jam and various kinds of fish pastes in tubes. I haven't been in a while, but there was, last time I checked, also some sort of deli there. Definitely worth checking out.
