Esmée Chef Andreas Bagh's French Brasserie

Located in the old venue of Geist is Esmée, a French brasserie from chef Andreas Bagh (the former head chef of Marchal). You’ll find some of his signatures on the menu, including the truffle gougeres and the jamón ibérico and gruyere toast, but, unlike at Marchal, there’s no tasting menu at Esmée. The menu is à la carte, and it’s a place you can drop by for a seafood platter and a glass of bubbles, as well as for a full meal. At the core of the restaurant is an open kitchen with a rotisserie, and the food is rooted in classic French dishes, but with a lighter, and fresher Nordic touch. Be sure to try the seasonal soft serve!
