Washington, DC

1636 R Street, NW

Back in November we learned that “Nordic Fine Food” was coming to R Street just off 17th from the former Executive Chef to the Finnish Ambassador. Mikko’s website says:

“Rye, seafood, mushrooms, berries, and roots form the fundamentals of Nordic food. Each dish Chef Mikko prepares is an elegant combination of traditional and modern influence.

Nordic fare is unique in its simple, yet versatile, presentation. Using traditional cooking techniques such as curing, smoking and pickling, every plate delivers a distinct and refined taste.

By using ingredients sparingly, but with intention, Chef Mikko’s cuisine focuses on the depth of each individual flavor. Crafted with fresh berries, nutritious vegetables, wild roots and more, a wholesome, healthy palate is the foundation of Chef Mikko’s food.

Mikko’s café is a place to try an array of modern, healthy dishes while experiencing the intimate and comfortable environment Chef Mikko easily creates.

Chef Mikko cooks for others. His versatile cuisine is complemented by his innate ability to develop genuine relationships with whoever enjoys his meals.”
