In Sweden, explains Cecilia Idman-Rait, a co-owner with her husband of the Beacon Hill Hotel & Bistro, the start of summer is a big deal. The party begins, she says, on the Friday closest to the solstice, and “people celebrate the whole weekend.” Of course there’s a feast. Herring, strawberries, and new potatoes are always on the menu, as they are at her Boston restaurant, where the prix fixe festivities ($47 for four courses, including the gravlax, pictured) last from June 17 to 23.
