SquareMeal Review of Aquavit

Nordic noir, hygge, Noma – the world has become obsessed with all things Scandi in recent years, although New York’s two-Michelin-starred Aquavit has been banging the drum since 1987. As expected, its handsome new London outpost showcases all those enviable Nordic design tropes, from superb lighting to close-set, unclothed tables set with Georg Jensen cutlery and staff in Filippa K uniforms. The food is defined by clean flavours, simple presentation and healthy ingredients. A smörgåsbord of small plates might include Shrimp Skagen (small shrimps marinated in dill, mayonnaise and lemon), velvety black pudding sharpened with mouth-puckering lingonberries, pots of pickles, and an excellent version of celeriac rémoulade. To follow, a rich veal cheek set off by dill and salt-baked onions also hits the mark, likewise an ‘Arctic bird’s nest’ pudding involving an ‘egg’ of goats’ cheese parfait nestling in a tangle of tuile strands. This is on-trend cooking served in a beautiful room that epitomises cutting-edge Scandinavian design rather than the homely comfort of hygge.

Although we were delayed and the restaurant busy we were greeted by the front of staff who could not find my booking. All was revealed when I had inadvertently booked for the following day - huge embarrassment for me! Nevertheless within five minutes and a few phone calls they were able to locate a table so a big thank you to the staff and to the people who decided not to take up their reservation. We chose the set lunch which was very good, all enjoyed with a Bergqvist favourite from Quinta de la Rosa, all in all, good value for money. The staff, once again, attentive and charming despite being a full house. Thank you!

A sunny spring day and lunch with a girlfriend, lovely light room and a great value, though brief, set lunch menu. I had the cured salmon with dill, radish and buttermilk, beautifully presented and with the crisp seeded knäckebröd and dense rye bread I was back in Copenhagen. This was followed by perfectly cooked cod with carrots, leeks and cardamom, all very delicious. And we tried the warm rosehip soup with vanilla ice cream and almonds for dessert, not something I've had before but it was simple, light and fresh. Overall quite delightful and I am looking forward to going back there already.
