Gå Nord – Beauty in imperfection, the wabi-sabi way

So, lately I had been hearing friends talk about this Scandinavian restaurant to the north, just a bit outside the city. The rumors had it right. This place does something to its space. You feel it subtly as soon as you’re there. I say subtly, because the decor is everything but presumptuous, yet somehow imposing and rough.

The whole concept is based on the wabi-sabi philosophy: simplicity at its core, drawing inspiration from nature. It’s a place that invites intimacy clothed with nature-colored furniture, plants, trees (!) and harmonious lighting.

What’s more, they’ve successfully translated the philosophy not only in their decoration, but in their kitchen as well. At Gå Nord, you will find delicious dishes sourced from organic, seasonal ingredients, prepared at the open kitchen, in the middle of the spacious interior. The huge windows of the renovated factory intensify every detail even more.

It is a treat for your senses, and against expectations, its prices are moderate and transparent. Next on my list are their Sunday lunches, where the chefs prepare  something different every week. This place begs for a revisit.
