This restaurant has a casual intimacy that makes it seem you were invited over to dinner.

The food was inventive, yet inspired by traditional Nordic cuisine. They source local ingredients, and put them together in imaginative ways. Because they use seasonal ingredients, they don't have a set menu, so to describe each dish might be meaningless, since you may never get a chance to taste any of them.

However, one of the several appetizers epitomizes what Gastrologik is all about. The dish was quail eggs, marinated in a "soy" sauce, wherein they fermented yellow peas (a traditional Nordic ingredient) lie they would soy beans to come up with the sauce. Then cooked the quail eggs so that the yolks were warm and runny inside of the firm and slightly salty albumin.

They also had a recommended wine pairing, which paired some very unusual and tasty wines with their unique food. The pairings were very well done.

All-in-all it was the best dining experience I have ever encountered, anywhere.

We absolutely fell in love with the restaurant tonight. The ambiance is minimalistic and gorgeous. The staff is exceptional. They explain everything beautifully....when you go there, you don't know or even get to see the menu until you leave. It is all a surprise. The food is as local as can be. The plates are prepared just beautifully. The food is beyond exceptional. Just a perfect evening.......except....I had the wine pairings...5 generous pours of 5 delicious wines. My only complaint is that the dessert wine did not go well with the final dessert course. It paired beautifully with the first 2. But the last course made it seem tart and sour. That is not how I wanted to end my perfect evening of perfect pairings. Please take my whining with a grain of salt. This place is definitely something special and the food is world class. To be totally obnoxious, this restaurant ranks #5 of my all time favorites that I've been to so far...right behind The French Laundry.

I usually find subtlety, class and finesse, in japanese food. Well, scandinavian is all that as well. Especially this fine example of perfection. Elegant touch, perfect serving, politeness and excellent wine pairing with dishes. The staff is interested in the best and also in what you think and how you feel.
I dare saying one of the best addresses in the world. Unbelievable and unforgettable.
Bravo! My heart is with you!
