The Norse Grill, Waldorf-Astoria Hotel, New York

The Norse Grill was a restaurant at the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel, Park Avenue at 50th Street, New York City. The restaurant was decorated in the Scandinavian manner. This was an informal restaurant for ladies and gentlemen, open all day from breakfast through dinner.

A black and white view shown here is described as follows:
This Scandinavian-style restaurant featured massive columns of limestone supporting heavy carved wooden beams. The walls are paneled in chestnut. The huge mural/map indicates the golf clubs, tennis clubs, yacht clubs and polo fields in the metropolitan area.

This postcard view is based on E.E. Anthony's rendering of the Norse Grill ©1939. A series of lithographic prints of this restaurant and others at the Waldorf-Astoria by E.E. Anthony is shown here.

  1. Gorgeous graphics. Makes me want to go there and marvel at the elegant outfits.

  2. Love the wood details, but for some reason, I expected antlers...
    even though they have a sea tradition.
