With summer coming, there are plenty of new places gearing up for the busy season. Eiriksson Brasserie is a recently opened new restaurant on Laugavegur, and Brikk is a bakery hoping to take the sourdough and pastry crown.
Baked goods in Reykjavík are a serious business. For several years, two downtown heavy-hitters, Sandholt and Brauð & Co., have been duking it out to be crowned the maker of the best cinnamon roll and sourdough bread in town. However, whispers recently began about another challenger in the distant realm of Hafnarfjörður. Now, these newcomers have invaded 101 with a bright, airy, spacious bakery right by Grandi. Will they defeat the odds and become the city’s baker champs? Only you can decide.
This sleek, spacious bar and restaurant picks up where the late and lamented Skelfiskmarkaðurinn left off. Rather than seafood, the central menu item here is truffles—you can have them on pasta, pizza, or in the signature cocktail range. When we dropped by, it was just before 6pm, and a happy hour champagne cocktail, a Kaldi, and a baked camembert came in at just over 3,000 ISK. We’re curious to try the full menu.
