A lovely Brunch, like a smörgåsbord, with a lot of wonderful small dishes to share which we enjoyed with a classic snaps.

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.

    Excellent food, served by knowledgeable staff. The wine list is interesting if pricy and the cocktails are intriguing too. If I could change anything it would be the sheer speed with which they try and get you through. I hate being rushed, and we did ask for a pause between courses when we ordered. We didn't really get one.

    Lovely personal service with delicious food. There was also a DJ playing cool music which was nice and fun on a Friday evening. The sommelier was good and communicative.
