Nordic-influenced gastronomy at Elska

There’s Norway we can ignore what’s on offer at Elska!

After saying farewell to the institution that was Freja’s (remember those brisket croissants?), owners Nathan and Freja Dunnell have launched Elska to the Wilston scene, a new twelve-seat restaurant offering a hyper-seasonal degustation experience.

At $110 a head with optional matched wines from $60, the experience at Elska is as affordable as it is intriguing. Available Thursday-Sunday from 6pm, the dego at Elska focuses firmly on local Aussie produce prepared in the clean, simple tradition of Nordic cuisine; think expertly balanced dishes like dry-aged barra with fermented peach and macadamia, emu with sour grapes, sea herbs, and purple carrot, and urchin custard with salted white chocolate and young fennel.

For the die-hard fans, weekend brunch remains 8am-12pm, with coffee, pastries, and a light brunch menu still on offer much to the joy of locals!

Combining the small-format degustation of Fortitude Valley’s joy. with the suburban fine-dining cred of 85 Miskin St in Toowong, Elska is set to be a favourite among diners based in Wilston and beyond.
