Restaurants in Sweden

You can spend an entire night at this three-story restaurant, bar, and concert venue. Start with a cocktail at the standing-room-only Entrée lounge; then move upstairs, where long-haired, leather-booted hipsters chat beneath tulle-shaded lamps; the third floor hosts Stockholm's latest bands.

Originally opened in Gamla Stan (Old Town), this farm-to-table restaurant is now housed in a former stroller factory in the small suburb of Enskededalen, five miles south of Stockholm.

Just a five-minute walk from Stureplan, this century-old restaurant is modeled after the famed Café Riche in Paris. Often packed with members of the local elite, the dim interior evokes old-fashioned glamour with long leather banquettes, gold-framed mirrors, and crystal chandeliers.

Wrap yourself in one of the restaurant's green fleece blankets as you dine among fashion plates and artist types. Try the potatoes and röding, a local fish.

Everything about Portofino is unassuming: its quiet location in Zinkensdamm, its nondescript brick exterior, and its short menu, which offers five appetizers, five primi piatti entrees, and four main courses.

Housed on the campus of the Royal Art Academy, Fredsgatan 12 (F12) is owned by well-known restaurateurs Melker Andersson and Danyel Couet.
