Concierge.com's insider take:
When Chinatown's beloved Swedish bar/restaurant Good World closed in 2008, the city's arty-Scandinavian crowd was bereft. But not for long. In early 2009, the same owners, Annika Sundvik and John Lavelle, opened White Slab Palace, a haven for artistic Lower East Siders who haven't moved to Brooklyn yet. With shabby wooden tables, unfinished concrete floors, and large floor-to-ceiling windows, this is urban rustic at its best—and worlds away from your typical scuzzy LES joint. Signature cocktails like the Stoli Beet go well with the selection of Scandi treats such as potato pancakes and Swedish meatballs. Play your cards right and you may be invited into the semisecret back room for the late-night dance party.—Alexis Swerdloff
