New restaurant: Aster at Victoria

Aster Victoria, Café, London

A new comer in the Victoria’s neighbourhood on the food stage from February: it’s Aster. This French-Finnish restaurant gathers a Déli, a Café and a more classical restaurant. Furbished by the talented Russel Sage Studio (who has already created the Dishoom and Bounce interiors amongst a lot of luxury hotels, bars and restaurants), you will find a cosy inside, a vintage bar with an antique gold patina, some surprising and aerial lights and an incredible painting. Our advise: book a table at the café and share a lot of nibbles, sides, and starters to discover the nordic cooking interpreted by Helena Puolakka. We recommend the golden beetroot salad, the pork roll with the aquavit mustard, the wild shrimps and of course the home cured salmon. The beetroot borscht is very thirst-quenching and the duck salad delicious (ordering the small size is enough). The whole team is very caring and you can’t imagine a nicer welcome. Good to know, upstairs, you have 2 private dining rooms you can book for corporate events or a special occasion.
