Opened in 2008, this Tokyo outpost of New York's Michelin-starred Aquavit is most likely the top place for Nordic fine dining in the city. Executive Chef Shinji Yokoyama has utilised his considerable experience and knowledge of contemporary Nordic cuisine to create a diverse menu that brings out the best in ingredients like beet, herring, crayfish, and venison. Having studied the techniques and presentation of Copenhagen's famed Noma, Yokoyama lets his skills do the talking in the Chef's Nordic Tasting menu (¥8,800, service charge not included, wine pairing available), a 12-course masterpiece that serves as a great introduction to Scandinavian flavours. Although the individual dishes are minimalist to say the least, even big eaters won't leave hungry at the end. Affordable set menus (from ¥2,500) and daily specialities (from ¥1,600) are available at lunchtime - a perfect occasion to check out the stylish and spacious dining hall.
