Björk, Aosta, Italy

November Travel Edit BjorkQuart 14 650x396 Björk, Aosta, Italy

Björk is a new brasserie in Aosta, Italy, noted for blending food with design. Situated in the Hotel Village, the French-style restaurant opened on 14 September 2012, with Giuliana Rosset, founder of the Napapjiri fashion label, at the creative helm.

The location of the brasserie is deep inside a steep mountainous terrain in Northern Italy, providing a small but contemporary atmosphere to all the fine dining. German, Austrian and Swiss influences are the only kind found in this region, so the brasserie does something different by offering authentic Scandinavian food.

Swedish chef Mattia Sjoblom serves up culinary delights like imported herrings with Schnapps, a Scandinavian open sandwich of smørrebrød in seven different flavours, beef carpaccio, beef tartare with dill and kötbullar (Swedish meatballs of beef and pork).

The kitchen, supported by many recent graduates of Sweden’s Grythyttan Cooking Academy, claims to be the first in Italy to plate up an authentic Swedish cuisine. The food is served on Ittala ceramic and there is a quite strong selection of wine at the restaurant as well.

The interior of the brasserie is primarily inspired by Nordic tradition but important pieces of design of Scandinavian origin from the last century have been incorporated too.
