Village Voice's Description

Bright and airy by day and filled with ascetic-but-stylish Danish Moderne furniture, Aamans-Copenhagen seems less comfortable as a dinner destination than as a place to grab a snack and glass of aquavit. This house-infused spirit based on vodka comes in such unexpected flavors as parsley, beets, and toasted rye bread. You’re supposed to knock the shots back with a single gulp, but they’re really better sipped.
The place is the first branch of an innovative Danish restaurant specializing in smorrebrod – tiny open-faced sandwiches on the aforementioned rye bread, which is made twice daily at the restaurant and is spectacular. Best toppings – arranged on the bread like small colorful sculptures – include a brilliant pink beef tartare poked with pickles, capers, and micro-potato-chips; and a pork pate studded with hazelnuts and laced with aquavit. The menu offers a wonderful trio of pickled herring, too, but the soups and other miscellaneous dishes can’t quite live up to the incredible smorrebrod.

    Make sure to sip, or ignore our warning and knock back, the Aquavit while munching on little smorrebrod (aka open-faced sandwiches).

  • Time Out New York on 04/11/13

    Smørrebrød—the open-faced Danish sandwiches—arrive on the New York sub scene @ this modernist cafe. House-made rye is topped with ingredients like beef tartare or chicken salad & baked root vegetables

  • jessica m. h. on 12/04/12

    this avocado, pickled green tomato & daikon crûdité smørrebrød is both gorgeous & delectable

  • Whit R. on 12/12/12

    Order the cheese plate as it is delicious, but charging $1 for extra bread when they don't give you enough to begin with is very poor form.
