Aquavit: a Michelin two star restaurant

in #food3 years ago (edited)

My dear steemit friends, I would like to share fantastic food journey in Aquavit, which is a two Michelin star restaurant. They serve awesome Scandinavian/Nordic cuisine!


This is how the restaurant looks outside.



The food

Warm and soft banana bread with butter to wake up your palates.



Appetizer 1: beef tartar with fish roes and poached egg. The poached egg is the best handled one I ever had! It's right in the boundary of liquid and solid, where the taste and texture is perfect as liquid, but stays together when you cut it to avoid the mess.



Appetizer 2: pickle fish, potato tart, and potato skillet. Fish is juicy and potato is crispy yet flavorful .

腌鱼肉,土豆塔,配铁板土豆。很地道的北欧菜 lol 味道很不错



Entree 1: cod, avocado, and poached egg. Again, the poached egg is perfect!



Entree 2: black-end seared sea bass . Delicious!



Desert 1: birds' nest. This is the best dish of the meal! The details are perfectly handled: the "egg shell" was created with white chocolate and is hard, while the "egg" is stuff with cheese so it's soft. They even make sure the "egg yolk" is yellow! And, it's really delicious!



Desert 2: cake with ice cream, also delicious!



The price

Some of you might be interested about price. It's actually not bad! A pre-fix menu for lunch is $58, including 3 dishes (the pickled fish w/ potato, black-ended sea bass, and cake w/ ice cream). The other three dishes are a bit more expensive so it costs about $200 in total (tax and tips included). As two Michelin star restaurant, it's really decent!


If you are interested to try, it's in midtown east, New York.

This is very interesting to me. Not only that the restaurant is beautiful, but the dishes also look delicious, and the price...OMG, it's so cheap. I love the poached egg and the bass. I think, it's a great fun for you. Keep sharing such things. You earned a follow :)

This meal is very unique and different from others. Specially this poached egg.

Excuse me for advertising. It is necessary to earn. I'll try to stop soon. :)

which of the pics was the poached egg?

Entree #1

thank you :-)

cant really see a poached egg, just the beef tartare

I agree with you

it looks yummy and delicious....but the price?only rich people here in the phillippines can afford...but i wish i can go there also someday

OMG the desserts though! Perfectly plated and sure they look delicious. Dessert #01 really made it like a bird's nest :) And the lunch price seems reasonable for those who want to try out.

yeah the desert #1 is master piece. thanks for the comment!

Please leave me a comment and share your thoughts! I read every single comment and really appreciate any of them!

To give back to the community, I will upvote the 3 post I like most (after ~48 hours) with $0.15 ~ 0.2 payout.

why are you quoting what your likes are worth, dont you think it would be better to contribute rather than just copy and paste the same message everywhere?
doubt you even upvote any responses

check my other post and you will see what I upvoted.

nah cant be bothered.

looks like a great Place :)

I came to Aquavit with my partner when we were in New York City, looking for a romantic dinner at an affordable price. The executive chef Emma Bengtsson is the second woman in the United States to command a two Michelin star kitchen (the other is Dominique Crenn of Atelier Crenn in San Francisco), which was a huge selling point for both of us.

I remember her main (the salmon) was to die for, and so were the deserts. I put on OpenTable that it was a date night, and got complimentary drinks from the kitchen. Overall, I feel like Aquavit benefits from what I call the "NYC Michelin Bump" -- with so many Michelin choices around New York, you get quite a few at quite good value. Aquavit is one of them, and I highly recommend visiting.

Thanks for the photos, the review of the food, and the memories you elicited :)

Hey @eternallearner thanks a lot for sharing your own experience! I actually didn't know the history of the restaurant before reading your post :-) Totally agreed that gives more meaning to every single dish.

And yeah the fish is simply amazing! I was planning to visit Le Bernardin and would like to compare the fish. But I enjoyed every bite I had in Aquavit!

Say hi to your partner please, wish you have an awesome weekend and can live the way you want!

A fair price for 2** Michelin 2018 Guide restaurant indeed.
Have you tried aquavit, a flavoured spirit that is principally produced in Scandinavia? I would if I where you, especially as the restaurant has the same name.

aha I will check it out! thanks a lot for the tip!

Sorry, the tip is higher then your deposit.

Quite love and amazing photography. The fact that each food put up there has some input of vegetables or fruits makes it healthy and nutritional for the body system. You are what you eat! Take healthy diet!............Lovely

thank you :)

I seriously enjoy your food-blog or what me and my foodie friends call it, flog! Not so expensive yet the food looks very well presented!

thank you :-)

this one is quite expensive (for me at least, lol)

@leftbank looks like an awesome spot to visit. Find it quite interesting that they served a banana bread at the beginning as you somewhat think of it as a sweet serving rather than a savoury... but an interesting idea to try (and I do LOVE banana bread).

The potato skillet and the avocado, cod and poached egg look amazing!!

I do have a question though... did you eat all of this alone or was this more than one persons serving? Because I can eat a fair amount of food haha and there is absolutely NO way i could have consumed all of that!! Hehehe

haha we were a party of two :-)

hehehe ok, well that seems more manageable :) lol

Beautiful picture

light breakfast with reasonably low calories very much required
