Alex Sushi, Oslo
Tel: 47 22 43 99 99
Concierge.com's insider take:
For the best sushi in the city, grab a seat at the circular bar at this minimalist restaurant and look on as the two chefs deftly chop and roll. Fresh tuna, salmon, shrimp, and scallops, as well as distinctly Norwegian bites like whale sushi or halibut fat rolled with onions, are available à la carte or as part of four tasting menus. If the bar is full, additional seating is available at oblong teak tables in the adjacent dining room. Keep an eye out for famous patrons. Famous around these parts anyway—members of the Norwegian royal family are crazy about this place.
Open daily from 4 to 11 pm mid-August through mid-July, and Tuesdays through Saturdays 4 to 11 pm mid-July through mid-August.
