A breeze from the seaside

The Norwegian Sea and the country's extensive wilderness are the sources of much of this Scandinavian nation's cuisine. So 66 North's menu is dominated by game, fish, moose and reindeer.

Since this produce isn't particularly common in China, the restaurant has imported reindeer steaks, Norwegian salmon and venison. Antler light-fixtures paired with wood-lodge surroundings give a warm and relaxed atmosphere, but the tall-stemmed wine glasses, glistening silverware, and projector screen showing Discovery Channel travel shows of Norway make for a somewhat schizophrenic dining experience.

The broiled venison (RMB 128) with sauteed red cabbage, mashed potatoes, asparagus, drizzled in carrot puree and red wine sauce came elegantly stacked, showing a more refined edge to Norwegian food than we expected. The sweet Norwegian rice pudding (RMB 48), a Christmas favorite, was a crowd pleaser as well. The restaurant can seat up to 50 people, and there's a private room with a fireside table for 12. Aside from the a la carte menu, there are three set meals on offer.
