Sneak Peeking the Menu for Copenhagen Import Aamann

New, 5 comments

Aamann, a new import from Copenhagen, will open in December, bringing all kinds of fresh fish, smørrebrød (open faced sandwiches) and homemade Aquavit to the people of Tribeca. It may not sound like a huge deal to New Yorkers unfamiliar with the Copenhagen Aamann restaurant, but it sure is important to the people of Denmark. The country's Crown Prince and Princess are making the trip over to attend a press preview in a couple of weeks to officially greet New York's "only exclusively Danish restaurant and cultural center."

In addition to serving Danish fare, the owners hope the restaurant will be a home of Danish design, music, and art, hosting special dinners, events, and performances. And what will chef Adam Aamann-Christensen, the spot's namesake, be serving? The preliminary menu is below, and it's full of things piled on rye bread. Anyone who wants to try his food can visit the Union Square Greenmarket on Saturday October 22 from 1 - 3PM when he and Noma's René Redzepi will present "the best of the Nordic kitchen."
