Located in the shadows of the Williamsburg Bridge, Aska is a moody, brooding space with just ten tables. The Scandinavian restaurant, manned by chef Fredrik Berselius, serves the evening’s guests a tasting menu inspired by Berselius’s home country and the flavors of the Northeast. On the menu recently: roasted leg of quail with fresh truffles and burnt pine, poached hake and salad of dulse with a sauce made from rapeseed and bronze fennel, kohlrabi compressed with linden leaf oil and linden flower vinegar. It is, as you can imagine, a detailed and extraordinary affair. Below, directors Jeremy Leibovitch and Ahad Mahmood capture the dedication and precision that makes Aska and its open-concept kitchen so special. Their video, “No Place to Hide,” follows Berselius and his team, from pre-meal prep to the end-of-shift wind-down. Have a watch.
