Wanted to post about a lovely experience at Aquavit's cafe. I was slightly nervous about a chilly reception and about the remembered tiny portions from a last visit to the dining room. Couldn't have been more pleasantly surpised: warm greeting right in the door; friendly service; decent portions.
Had the herring sampler - someone actually pointed out what the different samples were.
Had the turkey bacon crusted salmon, cooked perfectly medium rare as requested.
The Swedish meatballs were less than stellar, but the lingonberries with them were divine.
The pepper cheesecake with pineapple sorbet ranks up there with Babbo's marscapone maple variety.
I'll definitely return to the cafe over the dining room next time. Anyone else?
