Juiceverket (at Mood Gallery – Norrlandsgatan) is definitely one of my favourite hang outs. They now have more than 6 branches around Stockholm. I was there today (just coming back from holiday) and saw that they have a new juice menu!
After having some difficulties to decided I went for
Ginger Green Sumo
Turned out to be an excellent choice. Despite being 70% veggie, it was really tasty. Became my lunch and lasted me all the way to dinner
Service is great, drinks are great, music is loud!
Back in Sweden I had lunch at the awesome Mattias Dahlgren – Matbaren which is the ”budget” version of his two restaurants situated on Blasieholmen next to the famous Grand Hotel with a fantastic view over the Royal Castle.
Matbaren is described on their webpage as a ”modern bistro” with the cuisine based on using the best fresh products available. At Matbaren all dishes come ”medium-sized” and they should be ordered like tapas i.e not all at once. For lunch, one might be enough, but for dinner you probably want two or even three. All come recommended with a choice or wine or beer
From the ”lunchexpress” menu we tried both the Cocette with matjeherring & fresh potatoes….its was displayed like a piece of art!…
…and Open sandwich with charcoal grilled lamb
Ok, maybe not express serving but the quality of the dished and the display (as can be seen) top notch!
If the lunchexpress menu feels a bit ”too narrow” there is also the more extensive a la carte menu of course.
Unlike most of the very urban professional guest of all ages, we skipped wine and beer for lunch and instead splurged on the dessert menu
Owen baked bolivian chocolate with chocolate cake and…
…pakistani mango with mint sorbet.
Needles to say they were both fantastic and made a perfect ending to a long lunch.
Its not cheap, but anyway worth every penny. So go here if you want to show your international client what Swedish cooking is really all about.
Great little restaurant on a quiet street in the heart of Marais. Run by chef Claude Colliot (cooked for Sofia Coppola during the filming of Marie Antoinette and made a birthday cake for Tarantino). Cotillard, Canet and DiCaprio are crazy about him… The restaurant has a modern somewhat eco design – all with a warm sober feeling. Staff doesn’t show off, but are very knowledgable about the menu and the wine list! Best advise is to go for the 4 course menus €62 or 7 course menu €79.
