“Meatball app, fantastic!”
Reviewed September 8, 2013

Four of us had dinner two weeks ago. Everything was great, service was good and we were not rushed. We sat next to the open window on tasker st. The server took our order and did service from outside. We loved that.

“Great Addition to East Passyunk”
Reviewed September 1, 2013

A fun new addition to the great avenue of eating that is Passyunk. Across the street from Fond and Stateside, Noord as what seems to be an authentic scandanavian menu with many items I never tried before. Their pork meatball appetizers were great as is their rabbit dish. Prices are not cheap but fair and the BYOB always helps. Friendly, neighborly, all about the food.

“Fabulous BYOB”
Reviewed July 22, 2013

Having been to Noord twice now since their opening I have to say how pleased I am with this new addition to the BYO/South Philly dining scene. This is basically European comfort food with some Scandinavian influence.

The owners & staff are charming, attentive & delightful. They seemed truly pleased to share their cuisine & are very enthusiastic about their new venture/adventure.

It is a very plain dining room with an open kitchen, white walls, wood chairs, simple linen, paper covers & seats perhaps 35 give or take. My only minor complaint is that on a Saturday evening with a lot of larger groups the noise level can get very loud. But, that said, the atmosphere is casual, convivial & hospitable.

Food is delicious & portion sizes are large. Warm, homemade dark breads with garlic butter are served before the first course & it's hard not to wolf down more than one basket. I beg you, don't do it - save room for the rest of the menu. Because portion sizes are ample it would be perfectly acceptable here to share appetizers. I recommend the cauliflower vichyssoise, the potobello & walnut pate & the Holland sliders: a set of 3 small herring sandwiches.

For entrees we have sampled the chicken, salmon, rabbit, meatloaf special and lamb burger. All were excellent. Expect deep & hearty flavors with savory accompaniments.

If you can manage it, save room for a hefty slice of the Dutch apple cake, it will provide a simple bit of sweetness to enjoy with your coffee. Once again, an easily shareable portion.

It's South Philly, so parking will be tight in the neighborhood. A valet service is available on Passyunk Avenue right by the fountain & with the restaurant's validation it should be $8
