The phenomenon Brisket & Friends will open at Victoriagården in Gothenburg
In a former garage in Årsta, Brisket & Friends became a phenomenon among meat lovers in Stockholm. Just over one year ago, they opened a city restaurant in Vasastan in Stockholm. Now they have taken their passion for American-style barbeque to Western Sweden, Gothenburg and the Victoria block.
With titles such as Sweden’s Best Street Food and the Gold Dragon award in the budget restaurant category, the restauranteur duo Niklas Elshazly and Ludvig Åström are now ready to entice Gothenburgers with hickory smoked barbecue, a vegetarian range and craft beer at Victoriagården.
“It feels really great to open in Gothenburg, it is something we have wanted to do for a long time. To now have the chance to establish our first restaurant outside Stockholm right in the center of Gothenburg feels absolutely optimal,” says Niklas Elshazly, one of the owners of the restaurant.
Brisket & Friends will open around the turn of the year at Victoriagården, Vallgatan 21, where Wallenstam has developed a previously inaccessible courtyard with parking places into a popular meeting place featuring stores and eateries right in the center of Gothenburg. In addition to Brisket & Friends’ restaurant space of about 310 square meters, the establishment also includes a smaller roof terrace of about 37 sq m.
“We have looked at lots of different types of premises around the country and when we saw the premises at Victoriagården it felt completely right. It is going to be fantastic! We are really looking forward to being able to offer our barbecue to Gothenburgers. It will be kind of like Texas but in Gothenburg you could say,“ says Niklas Elshazly.
“Brisket & Friends will be an excellent addition to Victoriagården with a restaurant that apart from lunch will also be open in the evening,” says Marina Fritsche, Vice CEO at Wallenstam.
The signature dish of Brisket & Friends is brisket which has been smoked for a really long time. The recipe and smoking techniques were developed after inspirational trips to Texas and many hours of experimenting.
