Cuisine Scandinavian

More than $75

Frosted glass chandeliers, a mossy green carpet, the rustic table display of farmhouse cheeses, and furry shags thrown here or there make everyone feel like they've escaped from NY with warm, Scandanavian style. Modern simplicity and a sleek design perspective give the soft-spoken room a quiet formality. Myriad à la carte, prix-fixe, and tasting menus mean that an array of appetites and budgets can be readily accommodated. But no matter the menu, each highly refined and often ambitious dish is presented as a clever and focused expression of recently promoted Chef Emma Bengtsson's vision. Begin a springtime feast with sweet and delicate herring fillet topped with perfectly balanced embellishments including trout roe, herbs, horseradish cream, vasterbotten cheese, and more. Lush flavors and Nordic roots combine in the Maine lobster with horseradish foam to contrast sweet peas in dill buttermilk with cucumbers and pea shoots. Contemporary desserts may be composed of halved brook cherries with smoked vanilla crème brûlée, sesame and white chocolate "dream cookies," and sesame ice cream. Don't miss the house-infused aquavits, even as they stand in the shadow of their very fine wine program.
