DILL, a restaurant which is located in downtown Reykjavík, became the first restaurant in Iceland awarded the Michelin Star earlier this year. DILL restaurant embraces Icelandic traditions by allowing the ingredients to shine in their own simplicity.
Every week the restaurant devises a new seven-course menu; each dish paired exquisitely with a wine from the restaurant’s increasingly discerning wine cellar. Guests can expect charming clay pots housing mouth-watering delicacies such as Arctic char with fennel or pork belly with honey and parsnips while the restaurant’s more inventive methods can be explored in dishes such as caviar ash egg and dung smoked trout.
If the food isn’t enough of an attraction, design aficionados can revel in the restaurant’s paired back Scandi-style setting. Dill's interior was designed by Hálfdán Pedersen, who has also designed the interiors of restaurants Hverfisgata 12 and Snaps in Reykjavík. The designer is also well-known in the film industry and has worked on Icelandic films The Good Heart, Fúsi and Paris of the North, as a set designer.
