When Swedish chef Fredrik Berselius opened Aska in late 2012, he earned critical acclaim for his pig-blood crackers, hand-foraged oysters, and experimental Scandinavian cooking. It was something of a shock when, less than two years later, Berselius abruptly closed his restaurant to, in his words, “avoid stagnation and to keep challenging himself in the kitchen.” At this, the long-delayed Aska 2.0, there is an outdoor garden, a downstairs bar and lounge, and 10- to 19-course daily-changing tasting menus with possible dishes like dry-aged beef with cured beef fat and salted gooseberries. Ingredients will mostly come from the Northeast, save for a few special items like Finnish caviar.
The tasting menu is available Tuesday through Saturday (reservations required) in the main dining room and an à la carte menu is available in the cellar bar and beer garden from 5 p.m. to midnight.Recommended Dishes
Oyster, herring, pork trotter with sunchokes and apples, potatis dumpling, cardamom ice cream.
