Throwing herself into the unknown seems to be a bit what artist Siri Berg is all about. She was born in Stockholm to a German father and a Polish mother, but left Sweden when still a teenager, all alone. Though her mother didn’t much like the thought of young Siri crossing the ocean, the political situation worked in Berg’s favor. She left Sweden via a ship from Norway to Baltimore—a journey that at the time took 28 days.

Guy Clark visits recently Michelin-starred Scandinavian restaurant Aquavit in New York. The term "dining out" when applied to New Yorkers means no less than a sampling of the very finest cuisines in the world. New Yorkers are indeed a finicky crowd but were successfully introduced to more modern Scandinavian cooking when Restaurant Aquavit opened its doors already in 1987. The restaurant, created and co-founded by restaurateur Hakan Swahn, remains a bastion among the Scandinavian restaurants in the area - not ethnic but international with a strong Scandinavian flair.
