Fodor's Expert Review Aquavit and Aquavit Café

$$$$ Midtown East Quiet

This elegant and refined Scandinavian restaurant in the steady hands of Emma Bengtsson has prix-fixe options that include three- and five-course meals or an eight-course chef's tasting menu. The dishes may seem simple, but even familiar meats, seafood, and seasonal ingredients are gifted with fresh creativity here. Head to the sumptuous bar area to sample homemade aquavit. The elegant atmosphere features warm woods and modern Scandinavian design.
