Sample the Flavors of Gotland
Special menus featuring Gotlandic specialties will be served at Restaurant Aquavit during the Gotland in New York week. Gotland is an interesting gastronomic destination and a model for sustainable agriculture worldwide. The island is known for its emphasis on sustainability through the entire food chain and outstanding produce, meat and fish. Perhaps most famous of all is Gotland lamb, which grazes freely on wild grasses and herbs that impart a distinctive flavor to the meat. From the sea, pik, perch and herring are local favorites; and in addition to tender flavorful vegetables—organically grown, of course—the island is known for truffles.
For lunch, a 3-course Prix Fixe is offered in the Dining Room, Bar and Lounge for $35 per person. For dinner, a 7-course Tasting Menu is offered in the Dining Room for $115 per person while a Gotland Smorgasbord plate is offered in the Bar and Lounge for $35 per person.
Enjoy dishes such as Heirloom Egg with wild mushroom barley and Gotland truffle, Sea Buckthorn Herring with Pickled Ramps and Sour Cream, Lightly Smoked Montauk Fluke with cauliflower, braised beets and horseradish bouillon, Saffron Pancake with whipped kesella.
