Fodor's Review

Celebrity chef and co-owner Marcus Samuelsson may no longer be in the kitchen here, but you'd never know it from the impeccable cuisine and service at this fine-dining restaurant and upscale café, now in the hands of able executive chef Marcus Jenmark. The elegant atmosphere features warm woods and modern decor from a Scandinavian design team. Dishes can be ordered à la carte or you can opt for the $95 five-course dinner. Standout dishes include foie gras paired with

liquorice, lamb and sweet potato, and, for dessert, smoked vanilla creme brulee. Head to the sumptuous bar area to sample housemade aquavit.
