There are many good restaurants in NYC. There are even plenty of fantastic ones. And then there’s Aska. Launched in 2012 by Swedish chef Fredrik Berselius, Aska (“ashes” in Swedish) won a Michelin star only one year later. After reopening in a larger space in Brooklyn, the restaurant promptly received its second Michelin star. The menu features Scandinavian dishes made with seasonal ingredients sourced from urban farms and producers from the Northeastern U.S. region. Centered on seafood, the dishes feature fresh herbs and edible flowers in picture-perfect meals that are bursting with flavor. With only 10 tables, an evening at Aska is perfect for a special occasion, although any visit here will be memorable.
