Oslo, one lunch, one dinner, HELP

looking for fun, delicious Norwegian food! Just came from Stockholm-did Pelican beerhouse near Metro stop Stanskull(sp?)and Backfickian(sp?). Enjoyed both. Already had reindeer and Swedish Caviar as well as "Placie"(incl: roe, mmm)with beets and caper. Stayed at the Clarion Stockholm, loved it and, the breakfast-total foodie spread. Anyone who likes food would be in heaven with their b-fast smorgasbord! hear Greta's Kok not so good.

Tomorrow, business is taking me to "Terra" which sounds like a Med place.:(

I am more interested in a Lunch and Dinner in places where I can try the cuisine of the Vikings, or this land, in general. Gorgeous here, maybe I was mistakenly born in California.

I eat anything and price is not a deterrent. Eating and drinking 120 kroner glasses of wine, 275 mains so far, why stop?

Thanks, back to SF on Sat. Any reply welcome.

  1. If you are interested in local ingredients with a modern twist, my favourite restaurant in Oslo is Palace Grill (site in Norwegian only
    )They only do a 9-course tasting menu with a focus on seafood, which changes daily based on availability of ingredients. The price runs from NOK 750-900 depending on the night's menu, excluding wine. They have amazing wines by the glass - gowith the waiter's recommendations. They only have 23 seats and do not take reservations, so you need to arrive by 6pm if you want to guarantee a place. Dinner only
