Smorgas Chef @ Scandinavia House

Smörgås Chef Restaurant serves up super fresh seafood and prime meats based on centuries of Scandinavian & European culinary traditions. Zagat Survey says Smörgås Chef is "a refreshing change of pace", and Village Voice claims the food is "Damn Good."

Smörgås Chef's authentic Swedish Meatballs with Lingonberries have become famous. The New York Post calls Smörgås Chef the "Swedish Meatball Mecca" of New York. Smörgås Chef has also become known for its roasted rack of lamb with a goat cheese Sherry sauce, and its oven-baked Cod from the Kenai Peninsula.

For lunch, you will find a smorgasbord of open-face Scandinavian sandwiches like Cold water Shrimp, Smoked Salmon with Egg & Chives, and Chicken Caramel with Norwegian goat cheese and asparagus. For weekend brunch, enjoy Scandinavian Baked Eggs with a chanterelle hollandaise, Eggs Benedict, Burgers, and Vanilla Waffles. The New York Times calls Smörgås Chef "a little treasure Downtown."

Ambiance is a little lacking - a little too modern with a cafeteria feel. Downtown location much cozier and warmer."

"Uniformly fresh and good-quality food at reasonable prices, but you won't go home crowing about anything. There are more offices than residences in the immediate area, so the only places besides Smorgas Chef that are open evenings and weekends are the restaurants in the nearby hotels. It's basically a dressed up coffee shop with a Scandinavian slant. I end up eating either lunch or dinner here about once a month, so their somewhat limited menu is beginning to lose its charm. The wait staff mess up from time to time because they're too busy, usually when there's an event at Scandinavia House. Nonetheless they are unfailingly hospitable and courteous. I do like the birch tree in the center, but be careful not to trip on the iron grates set in the floor around it-you don't notice them until you're right on them.
A couple of things bug me every time I'm there: the kitchen is exposed at the back of the room. It is not well-ventilated, and the cooking smells-not always pleasant-can hit you in the face. Also, the restrooms are in a sub-basement, so you have to take a really slow elevator two or three flights down to reach them.

"Just like everything in Scandinavia this joint is well designed, spotless, and orderly. The food is healthy and delicious, the clientele well behaved, and the setting relaxed and authentic--I forgot I was in Gotham. Take the time to peruse the cultural offerings and the gift shop tucked away in the back. I came here to meet with a friend I had not seen in 20 years-the staff caught on and continued to refill our water and coffee long after the lunch was over so we could chat. Great place for a two person meeting of any kind. I would go back."

"The two best things were the parsnip soup, tepid but tasty, and the excellent attention of the wait staff, once past the indifferent hostess who gave the wrong menu and number although I and reservation said one for Restaurant Week. There was no hint of Elderflower flavor to the sparkling wine. Swedish Meatballs were predictable. The meatballs could have come from IKEA, the scoop of mashed potatoes could have been instant, the red cabbage WAS good. The overwhelming taste in the chocolate cake was sugar, the syrup decor might have been Hershey's, nothing of marscapone in the plop of cream and no promised hazelnut ice cream. Maybe the out-of-season strawberry was meant to replace? Lunch went downhill from soup, and dessert left a sad taste in my mouth."

"Restaurant is located on the first floor of Scandinavia House so you have to deal with foot traffic and noise past the dining area which for me is not a good dining atmosphere -- you're dealing with both internal and external noise. Noticed that after 2:30 pm, the restaurant thins out making it good for a late lunch or tea/coffee. Restaurant service was excellent but the employees from Scandinavia House were a little "distant" and possibly snarky when asking questions about the organization."

"Came here for Winter Restaurant Week 2016 and would highly recommend Smorgas Chef @ Scandinavia House to anyone who enjoys (or is curious about) Scandinavian food.
The Aquavit Cured Gravlaks appetizer was a true delight! The fish tasted fresh, and smoked in house and wasn't overseasoned. The dill and cucumber salad provided great acidity and the potatoes provided textural contrast to the gravlaks.
Our servers were highly attentive and knowledgeable about the menu. They consistently replaced silverware and refreshed water (many times before I had even finished my glass)
Will definitely return to Smorgas Chef!"

"The food is acceptable and the service is fine but the biggest draw for me is that you can actually have a conversation with your dinner companions.
It was Restaurant Week but we weren't given the Restaurant Week menu until we asked. Tacky."

"Enjoyed finding this little restaurant in an area where is it often difficult to think of a place that has a simple but interesting menu and is user friendly - even if you are dining as a single.
Obviously, the menu is slanted toward Swedish food ideas but there is definitely something to satisfy everyone's preferences.

"Would highly recommend this place! Our server was attentive but not too pushy, and all the food we had was so fresh and yummy. Super cute place too, great for pictures. You can even go shopping in their store. Love it, great find in an unlikely storefront. :)"
