The distance between East Hampton and Stockholm is about 3,800 miles. On Aug. 18, The Living Room restaurant at c/o The Maidstone shortens it .

The three-star spot hosts a crayfish dinner, a traditional August meal in Sweden, featuring all-you-can-eat crayfish, Vasterbrotten-cheese tarts, and braised short ribs, among the choices. The crayfish are steamed  with dill and schnapps. Cost: $75 per person. Dinner starts at 7 p.m. Reservations are due by Aug. 9.

Scandinavian design and "slow food" cooking define The Living Room, which opened last year at what used to be The Maidstone Arms.

The Living Room at c/o The Maidstone, 207 Main St., East Hampton; 631-324-5006.
