Mikko Fine Nordic Foods
Mikko Fine Nordic Food is a restaurant group that's lead by a former Finnish Embassy chef. They are dedicated to bringing authentic Nordic cuisine and culture to Washington DC. Its not uncommon for impromptu meetings of many of the local embassies to occur in the casual dining room.
For the Mikko brand we truly embraced the larger Nordic culture. Inspired by the regions folk art tradition we reinvisioned the Norse gods as characters in a culinary landscape.
Each god was given a culinary bent and expanded back story. We then applied them across a broad range of products and edible items.
The characters, and the larger design palette, have become a much beloved element of the Nordic experience of visiting Mikko's.
