Two Michelin-starred Aquavit, located in Midtown Manhattan showcases seasonal, Modern Nordic fare and has been a pioneer of Nordic cuisine since opening in 1987. The restaurant has an extensive wine list as well as an aquavit infusion and cocktail program. At lunch we offer an a la carte menu and a 3-course prix fixe for $52pp. At dinner we offer a 3-course prix fixe for $85pp, a 5-course seasonal tasting menu for $105pp and a 8-course chef's tasting menu for $135pp.

"I had not been in a few years, so looked forward to again experiencing what I recall being a varied and interesting menu. However, the current menu is a choice of only three pix fix dinners- at $135, $95 and $65 for the basic three course. The portions were small. The wine recommended by our waiter was $30 a glass. Dinner was $460 for two with tip, which I think is expensive for all but a great dinner. Aside from the price, though, the limited menu options were a real disappointment . There must be better Scandinavian food in NYC--though perhaps not in as sleek ( sterile?) a setting...."

Amaranth is located just off Madison Avenue on 62nd Street , between Fifth Avenue and Madison Avenue, in the heart of the most famous shopping strip of the Upper East Side of Manhattan and few steps from Central Park. We credit our success to a very honest approach to Mediterranean cuisine: a fusion of original Italian food and French food, great hospitality and the highest quality of ingredients that we use in our recipes. A large portion of specialty items that we serve are imported from Italy and France. Our famous Focaccia Robiola, our super fresh and tasty Seafood, creative Pasta and perfectly al dente Risotto, have attracted a dedicated fan base of New Yorkers, Europeans and celebrities, who are looking for a home away from home. Our Mediterranean Bistro has a really charming terrace during the warm season, where you can taste our delicious food or enjoy a cocktail (try our famous Frozen Cosmo!) before dinner.
