Experience Scandinavian Cuisine at Aquavit

November 19, 2014 12:02 pm

Want a special occasion meal that’s unique yet trendy? Make reservations for Aquavit, a restaurant serving upscale, innovative Scandinavian cuisine. Although it’s been around for years, Nordic food is only now gaining in popularity in New York.

Splurge on one of the tasting menus at this Michelin rated restaurant — a seasonal five-course or eight-course chef’s tasting. In-between course samples and amuse-bouches add to the tasting experience. Although the menus change with seasonal availability and inspiration, a recent favorite is the Arctic Bird’s Nest with "eggs" made with goat cheese parfait. For those who want a taste without the expense, stop in for the traditional lunch menu with popular favorites including Swedish meatballs and Scandinavian bouillabaisse. Don’t skip out on the restaurant’s namesake; order a flight of aquavit, a traditional infused Scandinavian liquor.

Dining at Aquavit is always memorable. The elegant ambiance is consistent with the Nordic themed menu. The decor blends modern and rustic, creating a warm and inviting space. The lounge even features chairs and sofas by renowned designer Arne Jacobsen.
