We offer housemade sweet and savory porridges until mid afternoon. Throughout the afternoon and evening, we serve hot dogs with house-baked buns, pretzels, and a wide selection of craft beers.
Grain Bar is an ode to “grød”, from the Danish word for porridge, which can be both sweet and savory. Our modern interpretations include oat and barley versions with fresh fruits, as well as savory porridges with barley and spelt that showcase the season’s best produce.
Since the Late Stone Age, the diet in the Nordic countries has relied heavily on grød made from rye, barley, and eventually oats. It was a cheap, nutritious and satisfying meal, an alternative to expensive meat, a ‘poor man’s food’.
Due to intensified cultivation and focus on yield rather than quality, the grain that we eat today has suffered a crucial loss in nutritional value. In Denmark, in collaboration with dedicated farmers and grain researchers, we have worked for years to reintroduce some of the original Nordic heritage grains. We are taking the fruit of that work to North America.
Try our grain dishes with a cold lager or ale from our beer program. Or just enjoy a hot dog on a freshly-baked bun.
