Brút Seafood Restaurant from Former Dill Head Chef

The former head chef of Dill, Ragnar Eiríksson, leads the kitchen at Brút, where seafood is the star. Alongside him as co-owner is sommelier and restauranteur Ólafur Örn Ólafsson. (The pair also owns the wine bar Vínstúkan, so you know that wine is a big passion of theirs!) The wine offerings at Brút come in a small book rather than a list, with chapters dividing the different sections based on your interests. Whether you’re in the mood for some “funky shit” or something “plump and reliable,” they’ve got a bottle for you. On this occasion, we enjoyed a bottle of Theodora from Gut Oggau, but we were also tempted by some favorites from Gabrio Bini in Italy. On the food side, Brút delivers high-quality casual comfort food with fish as a focus. We adored the Parisian-style gnocchi with mushrooms and parmesan, the Icelandic scallops with tomato and lemon juice, the skate with brown butter and capers, and the lemon sole with beurre blanc. Save room for the dessert trolley!
