Introducing Restaurant ATTME, a Culinary Destination Paying Homage to Northern Norway

Local traditions and Norwegian culinary heritage play the main roles at new restaurant ATTME, set to open on the seventh floor of Wood Hotel Bodø. The concept is helmed by renowned Bocuse d'Or winner Christian André Pettersen and his team at Nord Matstudio. ATTME, together with Wood Hotel Bodø, northern Norway’s most ambitious hotel project, will soon be ready to welcome its first guests.

May 15, 2024 is destined to be a historical day in northern Norway, as Wood Hotel Bodø is set to open then. Here, in the northern hub Bodø, an outdoor resort built mainly out of wood is growing, proudly drawing inspiration from the local nature and traditions. This will be a starting point for a world of outdoor experiences.

Now, Nordic Hotels & Resorts are proud to announce that the main restaurant concept on the seventh floor of the hotel will be a new type of dining destination called ATTME.

ATTME will combine northern Norwegian traditions with an innovative and modern twist, serving up a culinary experience that makes full use of northern Norwegian ingredients. The restaurant concept, vision and menu are curated by Nord Matstudio, led by the renowned Bocuse d'Or winner Christian André Pettersen, together with Rasmus Skoglund and Simon Engen. The trio was born and raised in Bodø—and although they have since moved from the city, they are proud to take part in this new chapter of Bodø.

– Our roots have shaped us, and even though we have moved, we are proud to be part of what is happening in the beautiful northern region. This project has been like coming home, with strong ties to places like Turisthytta, the area, the people and our loyal suppliers. It's part of our history and the time aheads, the trio behind Nord Matstudio says.

Celebrating Culture and Heritage

The name ATTME is taken from the distinctive dialect of Bodø and the Salten region. It can most easily be translated to being beside someone or something. Historically, it was a term used by sailors, meaning to lay alongside another vessel. In this context, it has been interpreted as an invitation to get a genuine taste of local traditions. The name ATTME also alludes to the restaurant’s unique proximity to nature and its surrounding environment, through its location on top of the hotel.

– ATTME is not just a restaurant for us, it is a journey through our northern Norwegian culinary heritage. Inspired by the word attme, we want to invite people to share unforgettable dining experiences together. It's a modern, playful and informal approach to celebrating the spirit of the North, says Kenneth Stensland, General Manager at Wood Hotel Bodø.

In developing ATTME, Nord Matstudio has placed great emphasis on local ingredients and traditions that bring people together. They have created a menu that unites the flavors of the past with today's gastronomic trends.

– Through the development of ATTME, we have really come closer to our roots and the rich culture of Nordland. It is a tribute to the generations before us, the ancestors who are not here today, that we bring with us into the modern world, Nord Matstudio says.

Restaurant ATTME will boast a total of 198 seats and will be found on the seventh floor of Wood Hotel Bodø. It will have the city's best view of Landegode, the Bodø Peninsula and the Lofoten Wall. Next to the restaurant, there will also be a cocktail bar, serving a separate drink menu under the same vision.

While still in the works, ATTME is already seeing a high interest from the public.

– The demand has been enormous. In the first two months after the opening, ATTME is almost fully booked, but we have a few openings left. We look forward to welcoming both locals and visitors from far away, says Kenneth Stensland.

Visual Roots in Bodø

The visual identity of ATTME, together with the development of the name, has been designed by the Bodø agency BYRAA. The agency has also designed Wood Hotel Bodø's logo and visual identity.

Wood Hotel Bodø has already received a lot of attention in international travel and lifestyle magazines. Forbes, Condé Nast Traveller, The Times and more have named the hotel as one of the world's most exciting hotel and tourism destinations for 2024.
