Krokstrom Klubb & Market

When chef Katee McLean opened Krokstrom Klubb & Market in February, she aimed to demonstrate her own creative take on Scandinavian fare. It quickly became a hot spot for Kansas City diners. Co-owner and general manager Josh Rogers takes the same approach with Krokstrom’s bar program, serving meads and housemade aquavit, plus wine, beer and craft cocktails. In the kitchen, McLean prepares menu items like smørrebrød, an open-faced sandwich topped with gravlax; or a pickled-shrimp salad with lemon and dill; and fika, which literally means “to take a coffee break.” At Krokstrom, fika takes the form of a dessert sampler plate meant to pair with the restaurant’s French-press coffee.
