Restaurant Visit: Vandaag in New York

Julie Carlson November 30, 2010

Inspired by the culture and cuisine of Northern Europe, East Village restaurant Vandaag takes its visual and culinary cues from Denmark and Holland (NY Times restaurant critic Sam Sifton singled out the "casually luxe" interior for special praise). The cocktail menu is based on Aquavit and Genever (an ancient Dutch-style gin steeped in juniper) and features eccentricities like Aquavit infused with mustard and sultanas or smoked black cardamom. The interior, designed by Eric Mailaender of Resistance Design, features a pared-down palette, a sculptural zinc bar, and custom lighting fixtures. Go to Vandaag for more information.
