Pläj Embodies the Soul of Scandinavia

Pläj is a phonetic spelling of the word “play”. When we say Pläj, we embrace life, happiness, right before, in the midst, or after a great meal. Pläj is a celebration of food, drink, and great company, and a place where cultures come together. Seasonal dishes with a traditional northern touch anchors the menu. Seasonal, Local and Fresh – is our philosophy. Choice cuts of fish and meats are served with a Scandinavian influence of flavors and Californian flair–A unique place to share the experience of new flavors, great wine, Scandinavian beer, and cocktails.
