Manhattans newest food hall centers on Nordic cuisine with over a half dozen vendors. It is the brainchild of Danish Chef Claus Meyer of Noma fame. On my first visit I sampled goods from three of the kiosks.
For lunch I decided on some sandwiches Scandanavian style from Smorrebrod. They serve their goods opened faced on delicious rye bread. There are quite a few to choose from, I went with a Salmon with Fennel, Apple, Yougurt and Horseradish and one with Boiled Eggs with Shrimp, Mayo, Rye Crisps and Watercress. One would make a great snack, two for a meal. Of note, there are vegetarian options available.
For desert I headed over to Meyers Bageri and choose from their large assortment of baked goods a Chocolate coated Cardamom Cloud Puff (available in a number of other flavors) which hit the spot bring petite yet rich.
Claus Meyer’s new Great Northern Food Hall is a great addition to New York’s food scene and I look forward to exploring some more Scandinavian cuisine.
Great Northern Food Hall is located in the Vanderbilt Hall in Grand Central Terminal
