Grädde, an upscale Swedish restaurant at 13 Elm Street, in the space formerly occupied by Gabi’s Sushi & Noodles downtown, is now officially open for business. We at Coldwell Banker were very lucky to have been invited for a private tasting luncheon, and all I can say is “YUM!!”
Ronny and Margaret Lager, both natives of Sweden, are no strangers to the restaurant business. Chef Margaret is a self-trained chef who has travelled the world and owned and operated two restaurants back in her native country.
Two decades ago, she visited Westfield, and immediately fell in love with the town. She began thinking then that it would be the ideal location for her to settle down and share her skills. Recently, the Lagers decided that it was time to follow their dream, move to America, and open a restaurant in Westfield. Thus Grädde was born.
Margaret told The Alternative Press, “We’ll be serving traditional Swedish food. All of our meals are prepared fresh each day. Please plan to visit us. We want to celebrate our new restaurant with all of our new friends,” she said. “We focus on quality, not quantity, and we pay close attention to each and every detail of every meal.”
Anyone else have a sudden craving for Swedish meatballs, chicken and dumplings, and honey cake?
