A new restaurant and bar in the old venue of the legendary Oslo restaurant Pjoltergeist. Initial rumors suggested an Italian themed restaurant, but it turns out it will be a modern British inspired gastropub. The old Pjoltergeist team, Susanne Låstad, Sverre Bøyum, and Atli Mar Yngvasson are co-owners and subletters to the new restaurateurs – bartender Andreas Lohne and chef Matthew North (who also worked at Pjoltergeist for some time). The bar will be wine-focused with simple drinks consisting of two elements. A five-course set menu will be mandatory upon booking a table, but à la carte options are available for walk-in guests and the bar seats. Sound familiar?
