Swedish in Östermalm & Ladugårdsgärdet

Green velvet curtains and suspended terracotta planters set a theatrical scene at this slinky, spacious bistro-bar. While the lunch menu includes a good-value husmanskost (traditional Swedish dish) with salad and bread (145kr), the place shines at night when it delivers beautiful, evocative creations like silky Swedish squid with white radish, oyster cream, rare oyster leaf and a powder of matured feta.

For dinner, a snack, a medium-sized dish and a main should suffice most diners.
