Ølsen is a showcase for Nordic flavors and contemporary Scandinavian design. Past the walled sculpture garden and white lounge chairs is a cavern of exposed-brick walls. Lime-green furniture and cowhide barstools lend a '70s feel. Best are the smørrebrød (open sandwiches) with different vodka shots (the vodka selection is impressive here); other starters like gravlax and rösti (crispy sautéed potatoes) are better than the often dry and underseasoned
meat entrées. This is the place for Sunday brunch, where expats flock for scrambled eggs and bagels.
