Ulrika's Review

MMRuth | Oct 27, 2005 01:00 PM

I went to Ulrika's last night for dinner with two friends/business colleagues. My husband and I go there every couple of months and always enjoy both the food and the atmosphere (in fact were there on Saturday). Last night we had:


Herring Plate - always a winner, prepared several different ways and served with a small piece of cheese and a little potato salad.

Gravlax - guest said that it's the best he's ever had.

Raraka - bleak roe on potato pancake w/ chopped onion and sour cream - v. tasty.

Main Course:

Guests had the monkfish wrapped in prosciutto w/ lentils - both cleaned their plates so I assume they enjoyed it.

I forewent the kottbullar (meatballs - my usual choice) and had the grilled salmon with a mussel saffron risotta. I had asked for my salmon medium, and it was on the verge of being overcooked and I found the dish a bit on the salty side.

They have a terrine of oxtail and foie gras appetizer that sounds fantastic - a new, fall menu item - haven't tried it yet.

The desserts there don't inspire me - I think I had the pancakes with blue berries once - good enough, but not my ideal dessert.

I had an aquavit - Skane - and then we all had wine by the glass - Chardonnay & Merlot - neither inspiring. My husband loves the beer they have on tap - their own brew, I believe - I often enjoy the Cloudberry martini and then an aquavit or two.

All in all - I always enjoy my meal there - the ambiance is cozy, casual Gustavian/Swedish country house, without being twee. I wouldn't go there for a typical business dinner though. On Sunday nights they have a buffet served in the kitchen. We're going back for Santa Lucia Day.
