Smörgås Chef at Scandinavia House

Midtown East
One of the city’s top cultural centers, Scandinavia House is a lifeline between the U.S. and the five Nordic nations (Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden), and offers a full schedule of films, lectures, and art and design exhibitions. The café, an outpost of small chain Smörgas Chef, serves up tasty Swedish meatballs, and the shop is a showcase for chic Scandinavian design. Families also shouldn't miss the exhibition-cum-playspace for kids, and the center's frequent storytelling events.
