On Our Radar: Aamanns-Copenhagen

aamanns-copenhagen

Sanne Ytting dreamed of bringing the foods of her native Denmark to New York City, where she’s been working as a teacher and psychotherapist for more than a decade; after translating her desire into action, Aamanns-Copenhagen opened earlier this month, serving up artfully constructed smørrebrød, Denmark’s signature open-faced sandwiches. 

Aamanns-Copenhagen is located in New York City’s TriBeca neighborhood in the Tribeca Film Festival building; it’s NYC’s first exclusively Danish restaurant, finally open after a year long delay due to kitchen installation complications.

Traditionally eaten as either a snack or a meal, the sandwiches at Aamanns-Copenhagen are made with richly malted rye bread; everything at the restaurant is made from scratch. Ingredients are sourced locally whenever possible and all salting, pickling, smoking and curing is done in-house. Diners can also imbibe some house-infused liquors with flavors like apple-walnut and beet. Tasting menus and sampler options are also available, as are house-made Danish desserts.

The design of the restaurant is, not surprisingly, minimalistic and clean (read: plenty of white and light wood) with elements by Danish designers integrated throughout, a visual echo of the clean, clear flavors presented at the table.
