Social dining in the heart of Trondheim With a combination of dining, nightlife, great flavours and a homely atmosphere, TAG restaurant is the place to go whether to share a platter amongst friends, for a romantic meal with your loved one, or to dance the night away. The friendly staff will cater for all your needs and make sure that you get a night to remember. By Ingrid Opstad  |  Photos: Monica Bye Gjertsen & Pontus Dahl

“Our main focus is the food, the service, and the atmosphere. We want people to enjoy themselves and feel at home when they visit us. You will always be served with a smile,” says owner and restaurant manager André Marius Grøtte. He started TAG in the summer of 2015 and has since created a great space to experience social dining. If you wonder about the name, Grøtte explains that it is an acronym for Thomas Angells gate, the street the restaurant is located in. With a large and varied selection of food, including everything from burgers and salads to the butcher’s choice, there is something for everyone on the menu. “We wanted to create dishes suitable for all parties and occasions – from a quiet weekday lunch to a big dinner with friends or a special occasion,” Grøtte explains. 100  |  Issue 106  |  November 2017

TAG focuses a great deal on the idea of sharing, making it easy for groups to experience social dining together in a fun and relaxed way. With the Afterwork concept, it is easy to bring friends or colleagues along for a good meal or drinks on a Friday to start the weekend together in good spirit.

The restaurant is open all week, while the lounge in the basement is open on Fridays and Saturdays with a dance floor. The music played here by the house DJ is a selection of popular classics, but not too loud; it should still be possible to hold a conversation. The backyard has outdoor seating, making it possible to enjoy food and drinks all year round, which can be a rarity in Norway.

Homely feeling The warm glow from the bio fireplace provides a comfortable and homely feeling when you enter, and the cosy, intimate interior creates a friendly atmosphere around the table. “Our aim is to make the customers feel welcome and want to come back. We are proud to offer the whole package, including the possibility to start the evening with dinner in the restaurant and end it with a drink and a dance in our popular lounge and bar,” says Grøtte.
