September 25 2016. We frequently have lunch at the Danish Cafe in Red Bank, NJ and one of our Danish friends suggested we try the new Danish restaurant in Brooklyn. It was a nice day so we set the GPS for 138 Smith St. in Brooklyn, NY. Looking diligently for the street numbers we spotted the Danish Flag and we knew we had arrived.
The weekly specials were posted on the door so we were delighted to see Saturday Brunch which was to our liking.
The interior was well appointed and this would have been our lunch destination had it rained.
It was a very nice weather day so we took a snapshot and got seated on the patio.
The patio was delightful, and was very relaxing.
Lunch was delicious with made-on-the-spot, high quality ingredients.
I took one last snapshot of the other patrons showing another view of the patio.
Yes, a delightful luncheon experience today in Brooklyn.
Sadly, the Bornholm Restaurant closed after only one year in operation. After a 14 month struggle Claudi and Lone Kofod, the owners from Denmark, could not get their US Visas. The Kofod's built businesses in two cities, (Red Bank, NJ and Brooklyn NJ) they hired american workers in both cities, they paid taxes in both cities but after a 14 month struggle the Kofod's could not get their US Visas. How sad that foreigners who come to our country and make a positive impact, can't get through the complex Visa process, yet foreigners who don't apply for a Visa can walk across the border illegally, in most cases becoming a drain on the US economy and politicians look the other way just to get their vote. It's a disgrace.
