The U.S. branch of this popular smørrebrød shop in Denmark tops its open-face, tartinelike sandwiches with everything from chicken salad to roast beef sirloin and kale “tartare” with endives, apples, and walnuts. This small, minimalistic restaurant is well-suited for takeaway, but there are a few warm in-house specials, such as a comforting ragout of veal and vegetables. As tasty as the toppings are, it’s the housemade rye bread that elevates these otherwise ordinary sandwiches. Make sure to order at least two for yourself—smørrebrød are small and dainty. Though Aamanns serves up breakfast, lunch, and dinner, the place is best during the daytime—the décor isn’t bad; it’s just bare (this is not a good date spot). Desserts include buttermilk custard and rye bread cake, of course. There’s a cocktail bar, too—just in case you want to have some fun during your business breakfast.
