In 1999, Swedish photographer turned restaurateur Annika Sundvik converted a onetime Chinatown barbershop into Good World Bar and Grill, a low-key destination for Scandinavian-inspired food and drink. Ten years later, she and husband John Lavelle unveiled their next venture, White Slab Palace for drinks, lunch, and dinner. Good World fans will recognize the sparse industrial décor, centered here on a long granite bar backed with mantelpieces salvaged from a Masonic temple in Yonkers. There are floor-to-ceiling freezers for aquavit and small-brand booze, too, and an inventive cocktail program utilizing housemade infusions and garnishes like Swedish anchovies and lavender biscotti. A raw bar will dispense shellfish platters, and the menu will offer such eclectic items as Västerbotten saganaki, licorice-gratinéed lobster, and the Good World burger. Look for open-face Scandinavian-style sandwiches at lunch, and, quite possibly, frozen meatballs to go.
