Went to this place back in 2004 armed with a page of a NYTimes article written by Mark Bittman on where to eat in Reykjavik. It wasn't much of a foodie place back then. He recommended the "lobster stew" at the Saegreifinn and so I walked down to the docks looking for a bright blue building. Inside it was something I might have found in Maine. Warm, homey, newspaper reviews on the wall, and seafaring decor. Full of locals. I ordered the lobster stew and it was sublime, like nothing else. Minerally and rich, full of langoustine - like crustaceans, and an herb I couldn't place. Anytime I know someone is going to be in Reykjavik, I give them the name and address of this restaurant and tell them Mark Bittman recommends the "lobster stew."
