Review: Tre Kronor

Visiting Tre Kronor last night was like seeing an old Skando friend who hasn't changed a bit. The downstairs still looks like the kind of comfortable place where someone's Swedish auntie will come out of the kitchen any second to offer up a plate of lingonberry pancakes. My favorite part though is the intimate private dining room upstairs, which can seat about 30 guests for a memorable private party. It feels like the auntie's immaculate home, and some lovely things come out that kitchen. We started with a baked brie with green apples, followed by a fantastic green salad. Simple and nice. My salmon fillet was broiled perfectly with a chive beurre blanc sauce that made me swoon a little. The burnt caramel dessert was a huge, creamy custard topped with a hardened caramelized crust. Divine. Brunch here is excellent, and it's a BYO, so bring some wine or aquavit and skol!

  1. I eat at 3K at least once a is always so good and reliable, and the waitstaff knows me well enough to refill my coffee cup without asking anymore. I, too, love the upstairs dining room for its comfy aesthetic (and the fact that you don't leave smelling like Swedish kitchen grease quite like you do downstairs). Mmmmm. The Sweet Bell Pepper & Brie Quiche is my favorite!
