Named for author Knut Hamsun’s fictional character, who lived at the restaurant’s address, Ylajali combines the meticulous presentation and craft of New Nordic cuisine with traditional, locally sourced ingredients like wild mushrooms, fresh mussels, and seaweed. The artful, multicourse menu features plates ranging from the time-honored (raw shrimp and dill) to the delightfully unexpected (sea urchin and coffee).
