Before crusading into culinary pursuits, The Norsemen dominated the sport of baseball, hitting well-placed meatballs and asserting their midnight-sun advantage during home stands. Field a fresh team of flavors with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of Scandinavian dinner fare at Tre Kronor. Dinner is available Monday–Saturday.

Tre Kronor's chef-owners Patty Rasmussen and Larry Anderson channel their Nordic heritages to craft a menu of traditional Scandinavian fare within a charming, bistro-style space. Aquavit-infused gravlax ($6), whose decadent, three-day curing process was featured on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives, weaves in thinly sliced ribbons amid chilled asparagus spears and crispy toast points as swedish meatballs ($12) crown creamy mashed potatoes, pickled cucumber, and house-made lingonberry relish. Limpa bread and melty jarlsberg cheese fill the rolled-chicken-breast entree ($14), and seared duck breast and apple pork sausage sing Abba duets from atop a mound of swedish-cereal stuffing ($15).

Slip into the quaint dining room, where a friendly server uncorks BYOB carry-ins for no extra fee. Patrons recline in the low-lit space with a glass of wine or cocktail, chatting with Nordic expats, a tapestry of neighborhood locals, and homesick moose studying abroad at nearby North Park University.

Tre Kronor

In 1992, Larry Anderson and Patty Rasmussen were approached by the owners of their favorite Albany Park diner and asked if they wanted to take over the business. Three months later, Larry and Patty opened Tre Kronor, combining cuisine from their Swedish and Nordic heritages. Dishes of gravlax, swedish meatballs, and potato pancakes are served out on their outdoor garden area or inside the cozy bistro, which, as Larry explained in a segment on Check, Please!, contains the original woodwork from the building’s 1896 construction.

Tre Kronor’s authentic and made-from-scratch Scandinavian food has since earned the BYOB eatery national attention on Food Network's Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives and the Chicago Reader has called their herring "superbly moist and meaty." Despite all this praise, Larry and Patty refuse to rest on their laurels, taking annual trips to Scandinavia to discover new dishes that can update their menu.

Customer Reviews

Maybe it works for people in the neighborhood because there was a good crowd but prefer Ann Sathers because we were expecting more of the traditional Scandinavian food.
