Playful without the antics
A relative newcomer to Trondheim’s dining scene, Røst maintains its position as one of the frontrunners for the city’s best restaurant. Situated inside Trøndelag Teater in a lush, spacious room previously used as a theater stage, you could be fooled into thinking that the cuisine is as old-fashioned as the white tablecloths and red velvet curtains that surround you. This is not the case. Despite the formal backdrop the menu is wonderfully eccentric and diverse, with surprising textures and flavour combinations. With an ever-changing menu you never know what you will get – perhaps a beef tartare with Kalix bleak roe served in a crêpe to be eaten like a soft taco, or butter-fried potato bread with whipped sour cream? From the homegrown herbs to the yeasted sourdough and the impressive execution, these well-renowned chefs (from such fine dining bastions as Ylajali and Maaemo) aspire for greatness. When in peak form, Røst serves some of the most fully balanced and inventive meals in the country. While this level of quality is not always evidenced throughout the whole meal, the three, five, or eight-course set menus are well worth your time. In fact, expect to spend half an hour on each course. In the meantime you can chat with the clever, welcoming staff, peruse the evening’s theater productions, and mentally begin planning your next visit...
