This is a Scandinavian food restaurant run by Swedish Chef Fredrik Berselius, offering two awesome options above and beneath the ground inside a recycled 1860 warehouse. The dining room offers a 10 or 19 course menu and is beautifully dressed in black for a demanding audience of high-end Nordic Cuisine.
The kitchen is fully open for people to see exactly what is going on. The bar underground has a cool environment with couches and tables and it even offers a basement patio to have a drink underneath the stars while having a taste of Nordic food, at a much more budget-friendly price. Two options of flavors we are not used to but will absolutely love instantly.
