But now, Fredrik, has signed the lease on a space at 47 South Fifth Street in Brooklyn, in the shadow of the Williamsburg Bridge. Apparently the space looks like something you might come across on the streets of Stockholm with the ambitions to become a neighborhood hangout.
The aim is to open in the end of summer. If all goes as planned, there will be a reservations-oriented dining room Then, for customers who drop in for more casual dining and drinking, there will be additional seats in the open-air courtyard and in a lounge area in the basement. Name has not been decided for yet.
