Fodor's Expert Review Tangö Contemporary Cafe
On the ground floor of a glass-sheathed condominium, Tangö's spare contemporary setting stays humming through breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Finnish chef Göran Streng honors his heritage a bit with unfussy dishes such as gravlax with crispy skin, but the menu is, by and large, "general bistro," running from bouillabaisse to herb-crusted rack of lamb, with some Asian nods. The weekend brunch menu is a local favorite as well. The Scandinavian decor includes Marimekko prints on the walls, blond and birch woods, and cloudlike hanging white lamps. Don't expect a touristy experience: Streng caters mostly to his discriminating city-dwelling clientele.
