Norwegian Constitution Day parties!
So-my Scandinavian friend has invited me out tonite-he said it is a crazy party day for Norwegians. We are starting at Smorgas Chef--peel and eat shrimp he said and something called Princess Cake for dessert. Where else should we go?
Might as well list all the other Nordic-esque places: Acme, Frej (Brooklyn) and... uh, that's pretty much it. Suppose you could also pick up up some Norwegian lox and Matjes Herring at Russ & Daughters.
If you're REALLY hardcore, head out to Bay Ridge and hit up Nordic Delicacies for a picnic basket of fiskpudding, sylteflesk, nøkkelost, geitost, some pickled beets, and a loaf of dark sour rye. Then take it to Leif Ericson Park and eat it there. But do it quick, because I think ND closes at 6:00...
For a cuisine that's been the "next big thing" for a few years now, we're sorely lacking in it, sadly...
