Danish-born restaurateur Soren Jessen, who has owned successful City stalwart 1 Lombard Street since 1998, opened Ekte Nordic Kitchen in the Bloomberg Arcade in the City of London.

Ekte, meaning genuine or real in Norwegian, offers a varied Nordic menu, overseen by Swedish-born Executive Chef Robin Freeman. The Scandinavian-influenced Restaurant and Café/Deli is open daily throughout the day for both eat-in or take away, with changing menus from breakfast through lunch and dinner.
