Celebrate the Holidays with Aquavit

The holidays have arrived and with them our beloved Christmas PlateJulbord brunches, Santa Lucia Day, Christmas Eve and New Year's Eve celebrations.

Stop in throughout this festive season to warm up with a cup of glögg (Scandinavian mulled wine) and classic Swedish wintertime delights, such as Christmas Ham, Julkorv, Jansson's Temptation alongside Herrings and other Seafood delights. 


From November 28 - December 23rd, this three-course smörgåsbord Christmas Plate ($52 pp) will be available for lunch, Monday - Friday, 11:45am - 2:30pm. Relax with a leisurely lunch of a cup of glögg, followed by a cold course, a warm course and a dessert of Ris a la Malta. Do as the Swedes do and wash it all down with a glass of aquavit and a Carlsberg beer.

Every Saturday between December 3rd and December 24th, our Julbord brunch ($105 pp) will return. An especially elaborate smörgåsbord meal, served only during the Christmas season, it has become a holiday hallmark at Aquavit.
