Presenting high-end Nordic cuisine in typically relaxed and accessible Scandinavian style, Aquavit is holder of a Michelin star, and boasts a 2 Michelin-starred sister restaurant in New York City. There are no strict formalities at this stunning dining space by Martin Brudnizki, featuring wall-hung textiles, natural wood panels, glossy marble and coloured leathers.
Dreamt up by Executive Chef Henrik Ritzén, the Aquavit menu includes a boldly flavoured list of smorgasbord and aquavit spirits, as well as dishes centred round the Nordic traditions of seafood, meat, breadmaking and pastry. Signature dishes might include duck with cauliflower, blackberries, hazelnut & liquorice, or Swedish meatballs with lingonberries and pickled cucumber.
Alongside its refined all-day menu, Aquavit in London also serves a Nordics-style afternoon tea, filled with traditional, vibrantly coloured Swedish cakes, meat and fish tartare, and the much-loved cinnamon and cardamom buns. The weekend brunch also offers breakfast staples with a Nordic twist, and plates can be accompanied with unlimited sparkling, or sommelier’s-choice wines.
Aquavit restaurant is found in well-heeled St James’s, in a spectacular building boasting floor-to-ceiling windows, and striking yet informal bar. Piccadilly Circus Tube Station is a 4-minute walk away.
