Retreat to Eat
Sweden's hottest restaurant is ... a rustic campsite with no electricty, deep in the forest? Evidently so! At Stedsans in the Woods, you can unplug from everything, take a sauna on a lake—and still enjoy a gourmet dinner every night. Who says you can't have it all?
"Cooking in America" at the Club
Eater's Sheldon Simeon stops by the Swedish Club for lutfisk and meatballs. Ever wonder what goes on in our kitchen? You might be surprised.

The Seattle Swedish School, which meets in our building, received a very nice writeup in Swedish magazine SMUL. Follow the link and you'll find the article on page 37—in Swedish!

Culinary Kudos
It seems that every time the Swedish Club is mentioned in local media, it has something to do with food and drink. Not that we're complaining. Seattle Metropolitan reviewed our julbord and lauded us for offering the city's best Swedish happy hour, and the Ballard News-Tribune liked it too. Zagat placed our smörgås (sandwiches) among Seattle's top nine. The Seattle Weekly also found some nice things to say about our smörgås, while the P-I reported on our Swedish meatball cook-off. And of course, our pancake breakfasts have gotten so much attention, they're practically a PR campaign unto themselves.
