While I was in New York City last week my co-workers and I set up our home base at the Scandinavia House on Park Avenue. The Scandinavia House is the Nordic Center of America and most of the space is open to the public.
There is a birch tree growing in the middle of the restaurant and the sight of it took my breath away. You just don't normally see that in a restaurant.
Scandinavia House - the gift shop, restaurant and gallery are open to the public. Visit for yourself at 58 Park Avenue, between 38th and 37th Streets.
