Claus Meyer brings Scandinavia to New York

One of the most influential people within the Copenhagen restaurant scene, Claus Meyer, owner of restaurants like Studio and Radio, has left the Danish capital to work his magic on New York. Together with Gunnar Karl Gíslason, acclaimed head chef at Icelandic restaurant Dill, he’s about to open a New Nordic restaurant, called Agern, and a food hall at Grand Central Terminal. Meanwhile he’s running a pop-up bakery in Williamsburg, providing the local hipsters with sourdough bread and poppy seed Danishes. The pop-up bakery will eventually turn into a permanent one and the restaurant is set to open in March.
