Fodor's Review

This elegant and refined Scandinavian restaurant in the steady hands of Emma Bengtsson has prix-fixe options that include a ten-course meal, a six-course seasonal affair, and a three-course dinner. Standout dishes are foie gras paired with licorice, sweetbreads with sauerkraut, venison tartare, and for dessert, smoked vanilla crème brûlée. Head to the sumptuous bar area to sample house-made aquavit. The elegant atmosphere features warm woods and modern Scandinavian design.
