This Danish-influenced eatery takes its name from Snaps, the liquor; and Rye, the basis of the traditional smorrebrod – a melange of open sandwiches on rye bread.
Expect to find the likes of house-cured herring, fish and seafood atop the rye alongside akvavit cocktails and infused snaps at this restaurant that boasts sleek Scandinavian design features.

Had a lovely lunch here yesterday! Bit weird dining in the same spot I used to have my hair cut (the owners moved their hair salon to open this place!)
I'd never claim to be an expert of Danish food, but the menu was full of unexpected dishes from smoked chicken and pork and veal frikadellers (meatballs) to sole fillets and mackerel. Might be slightly intimidating for those with a timid...more
Snaps & Rye takes me back to my childhood - and I'm not even Danish! My grandmother used to serve open sandwiches on ceramic boards, and the meatballs I sampled today reminded my of my mum's cooking.
