Nana

Japanese fine dining

Diners at Nana Omakase are served a seven-course Japanese menu with Nordic influences. Everything is cooked in front of your eyes, at the chef's table, by the restaurant owner. There are only seven seats in the restaurant, which creates an intimate and personal experience.

Etoile

Playful luxury

This fine dining restaurant can be found in an unassuming area between Vasastan and Hagastaden. They serve the very finest ingredients transformed into innovative tasting menus, for which they've been rewarded with a Michelin star, reflecting their creative, playful and bold flavours, often inspired by Asian and African cuisine.  Forget everything you think you know about stiff fine dining experieneces, as this is something completely different. Expect, for example, to eat some of your food with your hands. 

Sushi Sho

Michelin-starred sushi

Stockholm's, and Sweden's, only sushi restaurant with a Michelin star is Sushi Sho on Upplandsgatan. The whole restaurant is served one dish at a time, at the same time - omakase with small plates and nigiri sushi. The chef serves his dishes direct to you and he has full control over the menu, which can change from day to day depending on the seasons and what's available. 

Prospero

Seasonal ingredients

Prospero serves a set menu that's completely steered by the seasons. Culinary inspiration comes from all over the world, but ingredients are local. Thinking sustainably and organically takes centre stage here, not least when it comes to the wine list, which is short yet sweet with some biodynamically-grown wines. Choose between sitting in the dining room or around the chef's table where you can watch the chefs work in the kitchen. 

Nisch

Scandinavian tasting menu

Nisch is something of a hidden gem, that wins its guests over with ambitious tasting menus that change according to the seasons and available ingredients. The food and decor are Nordic, and food is paired with well-chosen wines. Lunch is equally ambitious and includes the same flavours and concepts at the dinner menu, with well chosen ingredients in Scandinavian dishes. 

Bord

Foodie favourite

Restaurants at this address have drawn foodies from near and far to the edges of Sibirien for many years, most recently the Michelin-starred Agrikultur. When they left, Bord took over and quickly became a popular destination. Chef Joel Aronsson bases his cooking around carefully selected ingredients that are served in a seasonal á la carte menu along with exciting wines. Or go for the luxurious four-course Saturday lunch.

Palestinian with a twist

Right at the top of Birger Jarlsgatan you'll find a little piece of Palestine in the form of Sweet O Salti restaurant, where you can eat modern Palestinian food with a twist at both lunch and dinner. Walaa Tebakhi, who has won prizes for her food, is at the helm. Taste your way through cold and hot meze, such as dips, stuffed vine leaves, salads, halloumi, falafel and meat, or traditional Palestinian main courses.
