Tre Kronor, a Swedish restaurant in North Park is deservedly well known for their weekend brunch, but underappreciated for their awesome dinner menu — and it’s BYOB!
With items like Toast Skagen, a Swedish ‘sandwich’ of artic shrimp and dill, and Flaskfile, pork tenderloin with savory applesauce and braised red cabbage, I want lightweight reds with a hint of barnyard funk and rusticity to them. My three top picks would be:
1) Domaine Monpertuis 2005 Counoise – 100% Counoise, an oft blended grape in Chateauneuf blends, this wine is earthy, light, yet has a certain depth to it that is really appealing and food friendly.
2) Chateau Musar 1999 or 1995 (I won’t be picky) — Lebanese wine at its greatest, Musar is a catergory all its own. Sweet dried fruit, spices, and earth rolled up in layer after layer of flavors and textures. Yumm!
3) Sean Thackery’s Pleiades XVI — Thackery’s non-vintage kitchen sink blend has a wonderful lacy texture, with peppery spice and sweet fruit. Fresh, bold, and still grounded. Delicious!
Anyone else taken a bottle to Tre Kronor? Do share!
