This restaurant is a new initiative from Björn Persson, proprietor of the well known Kock & Vin and Björns Bar. The restaurant is located on Geijersgatan, close to the upper end of Avenyn and it was opened in September 2009. To everyone's surprise it was an instant success. What was planned to be a quiet place for family dinners has become the place to be seen in Göteborg. The restaurant is decorated in red and gray and looks quite cool. The space between tables is a bit cramped, which means that when the restaurant is full, which is almost all the time, the noise level is rather high. Don't go here if you want to have a quiet conversation over dinner. The menu is quite short. There is a set menu for the night with 3 courses. For a surcharge you can exchange the main course of the menu from a list of 2-3 choices. There is also a set of about 10 smaller dishes available. We have eaten the set menu several times and it has a very good price/performance ratio. The specialties of the house are creamy soup starters and main dishes built around meats that have been cooked for a long time at low temperatures. Desserts are ok, but nothing to write home about. The wine list is short with prices slightly above the norm and quality substantially above average. The service is usually quite acceptable though sometimes the pressure of the crowds can make you wait for too long to get attention. A feature is that the restaurant serves food until quite late, which is a real boon if you have been to a performance at the nearby City Theater (Stadsteatern) or the Concert House, and feel a bit peckish.
