Steakhouse
$$$$
“AG is a restaurant for everybody, but truth to be told, mainly for meat lovers. We have the best porterhouse, clubsteak, entrecôte and such in Sweden, hand picked by Scan. There’s more on the menu, but the meat is closest to our hearts. We even tenderize it ourselves – the results are on display in the large fridge by the entrance. Expect fairly high prices and I recommend to make a reservation prior to getting there. ”
