Jonas B. Gundersen is an American-Italian restaurant rooted in the pulsating New York jazz and blues scene. The restaurant brings authentic American-Italian food to Drammen, combined with the feel-good vibes of great music.
“Jonas B. Gundersen was a Norwegian abroad, who worked in a restaurant chain in New York,” explains restaurant owner Håkon N. Jonson. “This immersion in the New York culinary scene is where the American-Italian inspiration for the menu comes from – and where the restaurant’s love of jazz and blues derives from, too.”
Since its doors opened nearly 30 years ago, Drammen’s Jonas B. Gundersen has gone from strength to strength – with four other restaurants in cities across Norway. This success is due largely to the restaurant’s excellent menu choices, showcasing the best of the American-Italian cuisine.
The menu offers everything from a juicy blue-cheese burger with fresh gorgonzola and smoky bacon, to pasta dishes, plus both American- and Italian-style pizzas. The pizza toppings range from the traditional Italian Margherita pizza, all the way to more exciting combinations like the ‘New York veg’ with aubergine, onions, olives, pesto and more.
The location of the Drammen restaurant on Norway’s biggest square also makes it the ideal spot for lunch with friends, or for a business meeting with colleagues. “Whatever the reason for visiting our restaurant, our professional staff, great food and relaxed atmosphere make for a winning formula,” Jonson says, adding: “We absolutely love what we do, and we enjoy sharing the unique New York culture with visitors from near and far.”
