The founder of Finnish Bistro, who moved to the United States from Finland decades ago, recently passed the torch to a new owner, Sandra Weise. With the same care for authenticity that the restaurant’s founder brought to bear, Sandra curates a menu full of fresh fish, traditional lefse, and Finnish-style baked goods—as well as sundry continental, European offerings. A robust selection of traditional delights includes pickled herring, beets, and cucumbers, as well as smoked salmon, salami, and spicy reindeer sausage.
Patrons can peruse fresh-baked goods on display in glass cases, ranging from the familiar—donuts—to the more unique—their signature almond kringlers, pulla french toast, and gluten-free flourless tortes. When the weather is nice, guests can sit outside to enjoy Finnish eats and listen to the wind whisper about its recent trip to Europe.
