  • Unique Decor: The setup of Aquavit Restaurant NY is worth experiencing in its own right, with separate sections and menus for the bar, bistro, and dining room. The dining room is darker and more intimate, with a full prix fixe menu, while the bistro is more lightly decorated and hosts Sunday brunches. The bar and lounge is more traditionally bar-like, with a wide array of cocktails and an award-winning wine list.

Inside Knowledge: The dinner menu at Aquavit NYC is prix fixe, with a certain number of courses for a set price, but often lunch and even some dinners menu items are offered a la carte. Call ahead or look online to see what the dining options are for a given evening or weekend.

We Recommend:

  • Nordic Choucroute: One of Aquavit New York's specialties is seafood, and the decadent Maine lobster with diver scallops that have been described as heavenly. The dish is paired with tender Berkshire pork, and the dish is topped off with an amazing sauerkraut beurre blanc. 
  • Glassblower Herring: It wouldn't be a Scandinavian meal with herring, and Aquavit NYC serves some of the best herring in the world of fine dining. Served with bleak roe, delicious red pearl onions, and a danish rye crisp, then topped with sour cream, the Glassblower Herring is one of Aquavit's most savory dishes.
