Average Reviews


We’re calling it.

Here’s the best thing that’s happened underground all year…

It’s called Agern, and it’s a sharp-looking Nordic-style spot with serious pedigree, and it’s opening tomorrow in Grand Central. Here’s what to know about it.

What it is:

The first NYC spot from a cofounder of Noma, that Danish restaurant that’s been called the best in the world many times.

Where it is:

Down in Vanderbilt Hall of Grand Central Terminal.

What Agern means in Danish:


When you’ll use it:

Group dinners with fellow Noma enthusiasts, drinks with yourself before hopping a train, dinner with a date who can get into trekking underground.

What you’ll order:

Artfully plated ribbons of cabbage with sweet mustard flowers, 24-day-hung beef for two, scallops with daikon and sunflower seeds.

The most Nordic ingredient on the menu:

Toss-up between the dead nettle on the parsnip and the ground ivy topping your goat’s milk and pear sorbet.

Speaking of that menu:

It’s right here.

As for the slideshow:

It’s where you’ll find the space, in all its light wood and geometric lines and black leather banquettes glory. A salad masquerading as art masquerading as a salad. Other edible things of great beauty.

It’s all right here. Right beyond these words.
