After major renovations in spring of 2011, local legend Pontus Frithiof reopened the multi-level Pontus!, located on Stureplan Square. An Asian-themed cocktail bar with carrara marble and copper details serves sushi, dim sum, and Swedish/Asian fusion cocktails. The seafood bar with an open kitchen focuses on oysters and champagne as well as caviar, shellfish, and dishes such as ceviche. The dining room has remained the same, with brown and pink semi-circular banquettes and trompe l'oeil wallpaper designed to look like a library. The menu spans the globe, with choices such as blood pudding, melon gazpacho, and Korean ribs.
