On an unassuming side street in the Kungsholmen district you will find Restaurant AG- a meat-lover's paradise! There are seafood and vegetarian dishes on the menu but, as you step in and see the glass encased refrigerator filled with meat dry-aging, you quickly realize that meat is the focus of this popular restaurant. The name "ag" (the chemical symbol for silver) is a reference to the fact that the restaurant is located in an old silver workshop. The factory history of the locale is apparent as the restaurant has a real industrial feel to its interior design with lots of white tile, metal and exposed pipes. They dry age their own meat and these glass refrigerators are an interesting part of the decor as well.
Meat... dry aging before your eyes
I was there yesterday evening with a couple of colleagues and enjoyed tapas and wine in their bar... a perfect place to start the evening before heading over to the dining room. Steakhouses have been a big trend in Stockholm's culinary landscape for the past couple of years and AG has the reputation for being one of the best in the city. If words like porterhouse, entrecote and cochinillo make you drool, then this is the place for you! It is about a 10 minute taxi ride from the Rival Hotel... but well worth the trip! You can also take the subway- green line from Slussen to Fridhemsplan.
