Stockholm Travel Guide


Surbrunnsg. 20, Stockholm 113 48, Sweden
Phone: 08/165130

This may be the most exclusive -- and smallest -- hotel in town, with only 10 rooms in a former 1739 inn. The restaurant ($$) is worth visiting even if you don't spend the night: its old-fashioned dining room serves Swedish and Continental dishes such as outstanding strömming (Baltic herring) and cloudberry mousse cake. Reservations are essential. Note that the restaurant is closed in July. AE, DC, MC, V.

Österlångg. 51, Stockholm, Sweden
Phone: 08/248760

Sweden's most famous old tavern has been open for business since 1722. Every Thursday the Swedish Academy meets here in a private room on the second floor. The haunt of bards and barristers, artists and adpeople, Freden could probably serve sawdust and still be popular, but the food and staff are worthy of the restaurant's hallowed reputation. The cuisine has a Swedish orientation, but Continental influences spice up the menu. Season permitting, try the oven-baked fillets of turbot served with chanterelles and crêpes; the gray hen fried with spruce twigs and dried fruit is another good selection. AE, DC, MC, V. Closed Sun. No lunch

Nybrog./Almlöfsg., Stockholm, Sweden
Phone: 08/6656142

Connected to Lillascenen, the smaller stage that's behind the Royal National Theater, this is the perfect place to grab a bite before a performance. One wall is covered in black-and-white photos of the theater's most famous actors, and posters of major productions line the bar, behind which is the open kitchen. Bar stools along the window allow for great people-watching. The food is a modern take on husmanskost, traditional Swedish cooking. Try the classic Isterband sausage with creamy parsley potatoes. AE, DC, MC, V. No lunch weekends.

Stureplan 13, Stockholm, Sweden
Phone: 08/6114959

Just off Stureplan, East is one of the city's culinary hot spots, offering enticing contemporary pan-Asian fare from Thailand, Japan, Korea, and Vietnam. Order a selection of appetizers to get a sampling of this cross-cultural cooking. East is a perfect spot to have dinner before a night on the town. Try the Luxor: chicken, tiger shrimp, and egg noodles with peanuts, mint leaves, and coconut sauce. The bar area at this vibrant restaurant turns into a miniclub at night, with soul and hip-hop on the turntables. AE, DC, MC, V.

Sollentunav. 220, Stockholm, Sweden
Phone: 08/963300

In 1626 Edsbacka, just outside town, became Stockholm's first licensed inn. Its exposed rough-hewn beams, plaster walls, and open fireplaces still give it the feel of a resting post for the gentry, and careful modernization has created all the comforts you would expect at this end of the restaurant scale. Chef Christer Lindström interprets Swedish cuisine creatively. Ease into the meal with seared lobster served with a compote of root crops, followed by roasted breast and liver of wild duck with pear sauce. AE, DC, MC, V. Closed Sun. and Mon.
