RESTAURANT ULO

You might be surprised to discover superb cuisine in a small town more than 200 miles north of the Arctic Circle. Yet that’s just what you’ll find at Restaurant Ulo in the four-star Hotel Arctic in fascinating Ilulissat, Greenland. Chef Jeppe Ejvind Nielsen employs local ingredients such as reindeer, musk ox, amazing fresh fish, and shellfish to create masterful meals.

Start with a sublime snowcrab soup with angelica leaves or the expertly seasoned reindeer with garlic and parsley served with dried reindeer heart as a garnish. (It’s a Greenlandic delicacy and better than it sounds.) My favorite entrée is the fresh halibut, which arrives with cabbage in a white cream sauce. For dessert, go for the homemade gooseberry ice cream, local berries, or lemon crème brûlée. And add a cup of Greenlandic coffee, which combines good local coffee with Irish whisky, Grand Marnier, Kahlua, sugar, and whipped cream.

Restaurant Ulo also features an impressive list of 5,000 wines from around the world, including a huge selection of Champagnes and sparkling wines. There’s a good by-the-glass selection, too.

With brilliant views of the harbor and icebergs floating by, Restaurant Ulo offers great service, a fine dining experience, and a taste of a different world.
