We tried this place when it was Frej and found it pretentious and dull. Is it better as Aska? At these prices, we’ll likely never know:
Scandinavian sensation Aska is stepping up its game with a new 10-course tasting menu from chef Fredrik Berselius that will be offered on Friday and Saturday nights for $115 per person. The $65 seven-course tasting menu will also be available. A member of the Aska team explains that this new menu will “expand upon the techniques, ingredients, and ideas currently present at Aska.” Beverage pairings will be offered for $65.
This is the third most expensive tasting menu currently offered in Brooklyn, right behind Blanca and Brooklyn Fare. This new development comes just a week after opening GM and beverage director Eamon Rockey left the restaurant, and three weeks after Aska scored a sweet two-star review from Pete Wells.
