After a year of delays, and an opening that got pushed back even further by Sandy, Aamanns-Copenhagen finally opened its doors yesterday. This is the U.S. offshoot of Adam Aamann's very popular smørrebrød shop in Denmark, and you can expect intricate open-faced sandwiches with toppings like braised pork breast, beef tartare with homemade potato crisps, and pork paté with aquavit and pickled lignonberries. Add to that more homemade aquavit, seafood specials such as "sugar-salted salmon," and lots of herring preparations. (Scope the full food and drink menus below.) The spot is open for breakfast Monday through Friday, lunch Tuesday through Sunday, brunch on the weekends, and dinner every day, meaning you'll have lots of chances to give it a try.
