Two new restaurants opening at Friends Arena in cooperation with Operakällaren
11 Mar 2015
Friends Arena is focusing on a completely new food concept and is opening two new restaurants inside the arena in cooperation with Operakällaren.
The restaurants West Lounge c/o Operakällaren and East Lounge c/o Bakfickan premiered during last weekend’s Swedish final of the Eurovision Song Contest. Multiple award-winning chef and Court Restaurateur for the Swedish Royal Court, Stefano Catenacci, accounts for the cuisine and menus.
Although the restaurants focus on somewhat different cuisines, what they have in common is the use of top-quality food raw materials offered in relaxing settings. At the West Lounge c/o Operakällaren, a three-course menu will be offered with table service in what is called an open kitchen environment, whereby guests can watch the chefs arranging the meals. The East Lounge c/o Bakfickan restaurant offers a more basic cuisine in the form of a buffet. The restaurants will also deliver food and beverages to guests using Friends Arena’s private boxes.
