More than three months after closing due to a flood, Michelin-starred Nordic restaurant Agern reopened this week with a slightly new look and a new menu.

Claus Meyer and Agern chef Gunnar Gislason brought back the restaurant’s seasonal menu on Wednesday, this time with new options on both ends of the spectrum, with more luxurious as well as faster options at lunch.

People can now choose both two- and three-course tasting menus during the day for $55 and $65 respectively, as well as try new salads. With the renovation, the restaurant also has added an “Agern Express” option — a protein-plus-two sides that will change weekly, aimed at people looking for speedier lunch. This week, it’s fried fluke, green tomatoes, and fennel salad for $38.

A tasting menu at dinner remains, split by “land and sea” and “field and forest.” Land and sea costs $175 for seven courses plus snacks, while the meat-free one costs $155. A la carte options on the reopening menu include an 180-day, dry-aged tomahawk rib-eye for two, grilled halibut, and a pork belly with cauliflower dish.

Agern closed on March 28 after construction caused flooding in the dining room. Agern originally opened in spring of 2016, and since then, it has received three stars from the Times and one from the Michelin guide.

Take a look at the updated dining room and the full menus, below.
