SquareMeal Review of Aster

Bronze Award

This restaurant and café is the work of D&D London (Coq d’Argent, Launceston Place et al), spread across two floors at the Nova development and offering a succinct, mid-priced menu of delicate Nordic dishes. The seasonal selection brims with seafood, including a hot-smoked Arctic char scattered with Greenland prawns. The char was as fresh and plump as you would hope, deftly balanced with the earthy tones of aubergine caviar. Elsewhere, soft morsels of milk-fed lamb were served alongside lingonberries and stocky minced meat wrapped in cabbage, making for a tight combination of complementing flavours. All portions were on the light side (perhaps characteristically so for this cuisine), making Aster a restaurant for the delicate of appetite. The restaurant’s look is a disorientating mix of industrial and softer elements, but the ground-floor café feels more cohesive with its earthy tones and marble bar, where the menu covers the same ground more casually and adds salads, smorgasbords and pies. A sumptuous array of wines by the glass (including fine drops via Coravin) and pre-theatre menus make this a good shout if you’re catching a show nearby.

Aster* (asterisk for excellent)
22 February 2017  
Aster* is welcomed addition to the London restaurant scene. Dishes cooked to perfection served by attentive staff in an elegant and vibrant setting. I enjoyed a wonderful lunch in the Aster Cafe which started with inhaling their amazing bread, served warm. Next I choose a tasty kale and broccoli salad - although I was worried it might be too healthy (= boring), but it was both virtuous and delicious. I then enjoyed some excellent Skrei cod with brown shrimp - we are talking authentic Nordic ingredients right here in London. As we were four ladies we decided to share two desserts and made a great choice by taking the Runeberg cake and the Rhubard Clafoutis - I can't pronounce it, but I can certainly eat it. I am keen to try the Aster Restaurant and the Deli too. Many reasons to return. * = excellent
