Opened in summer 2011 by two of Iceland’s most talented chefs, Hrefna Rósa Sætren and Guđlaugur P. Frímannsson, Grillmarkađurinn resides in the beautifully reconstructed art nouveau Nýja Bíó, which was destroyed by fire in 1998. The restaurant’s smart, contemporary dining room is inspired by Iceland’s natural elements of rock, water and wood. Meanwhile, its lower-floor lounge area offers a relaxed ambience to enjoy a drink. Using locally sourced, seasonal Icelandic ingredients, Grillmarkađurinn serves appetizers like the adventurous whale, puffin and lobster mini burgers.
