Cuisine Scandinavian

More than $75

Known for its distinct, modern Scandinavian style, Aquavit is undeniably cool. Inside, the lounge features funky leather chairs for post-work drinking. The dining room has Star Trek-like seating, dark plank flooring, and high-minded design of a Swedish furniture show room—but in a really good way. The crowd is a pleasant mix of old, young, and anyone looking for a little Nordic purr; servers favor black-framed spectacles and are polite, professional, and wondrously synchronized. Whether choosing one of the prix-fixe menus or selecting courses à la carte, all ingredients and combinations remain very true to Scandinavian flavors. Begin with an oversized shell artistically displaying Nantucket bay scallops, lobes of sea urchin, cucumber beads, chives, and vibrant dill oil. This might be followed with an umami-rich array of sautéed mushrooms set over a silky poached heirloom chicken egg, polenta emulsion, and crisp grains. Mild, tender rabbit confit is paired with toasted garlic chips, tart lingonberry, and cured egg yolk. Desserts promise ambition, skill, and pleasure, as in the orange crème brûlée with rum muscovado ice cream, caramel truffles, and pistachio brittle.
