The Swedish setting of A Little Night Music inspired our talented chef at Ali’s Bar to create a light, filling seafood dish to go with the show: the open-faced shrimp sandwich. This sandwich is delicious, easy, and looks great on a plate. Learn how to make this tasty meal in our new video, or get tickets to A Little Night Music and try it at Ali’s Bar!
