Description: Born in Via Panfilo Castaldi, lively multiethnic crossroads of Porta Venezia voted to culture, art and nightlife, Bjork Swedish Brasserie & Side Store, already project store dedicated to food and design in Milan and Swedish brasserie in Aosta, in November 2014, renewed itself as a shop-restaurant-brasserie. The store accompanies the restaurant with a thorough search of Nordic food products and beers whereas the contemporary design offers a selection of small items for the kitchen and the house, unprecedented in Italy, only sold in Bjork. An ideal place for lunch, afternoon tea, aperitifs and dinner; with a rich deli of delicacies to be enjoyed on site or to take home or to the office. One important area is dedicated to the world of smorrebrod, open sandwiches which, with their immediate and simple elegance, offer a rainbow of Nordic flavors adapting to all kinds palate.

The herring assortment was delicious but the portion size was small compared to the price. I noticed my husband's gravlax platter was more generously sized. Their seeded wheat bread is one of the best I've had. Nice servers but they brought me the wrong dish at first.

Closes between lunch and dinner; opens at 7 PM despite what's posted on their door and their website.

The atmosphere is nice but food was rather odd or bizarre.
I don't mean to criticize the Swedish food, but the amount and variety of foods were too few.

Impressive that the restaurant have been able to migrate the new nordic food concept to italy in this way. In this style of cooking the freshness of the ingredients are extremely important, but they manage to keep this very good.

Service was good, knowledgable, fast, polite without beeing intrusive.

Prices are a bit on the higher side for Milano, but if you would go to a similar quality restaurant in the nordics the prices would have been higher.

What they did miss is that on many new nordic restaurants the final preparation of the food is done in front of the clients. The bar would have been an excellent opportunity for this, but it is not properly used right now

Normally I think going to a non-Italian restaurant in Italy to be a foolish idea. The food at Bjork is pretty good but of course it is nowhere near as good as that in Stockholm, for example. So it is a decent but expensive meal that left me vaguely unsatisfied. I would stick to the excellent Italian around town.

Love the place because of its internal design, the fantastic food and gentle staff. I did not find anything negative for this place. There are plenty interesting things around and the design in so refined.
