The Five-Point Weekend Escape Plan

Go Retro in Stockholm


2. Where to Eat

The eclectic décor at Grill is inspired by various elements of French culture.  

Get your carnivore fix at Djuret, a cozy nose-to-tail bistro with a menu designed around a single, organic type of meat that changes every month. The current offering of veal includes a dish of fried sirloin served with marrow-and-cauliflower croquettes and yellow and red beets ($48), but for an indulgent experience, order the Grand Deluxe menu ($116), an endless parade of selections that stops only when you say so.

Dine on the freshest seafood in town at Lisa Elmqvist in the popular Östermalms Saluhall food market. Here, you can choose from Swedish classics like fried salted herring with onion and cream ($20), and marinated Arctic char with sweet mustard sauce and grilled asparagus ($36), or pick up caviar, smoked salmon, and seafood condiments for a picnic.

Go eclectic at Grill, where the vibrant décor is inspired by Moulin Rouge and Versailles. The menu combines the flavors of Chile, Australia, and the U.S. in addition to Sweden, and everything is made using a brick oven, rotisserie, smoke, charcoal, or a table grill. Share the famous grill plate of lamb, beef tenderloin, pork loins, farm chicken, and spicy sausage ($52 per person, minimum two people), or take advantage of the set lunch buffet ($15).
