Classic brasserie and social stage at Stureplan in the center of Stockholm’s entertainment precinct. Great people watching! Swedish cuisine with many classics on the menu. If you are going to taste a Swedish “Toast Skagen” then this is the place to order it – the best in town according to me (followed by the Toast Skagen at the restaurant Riche ).
