In With the New
Out with the old and in with the new, as the saying goes. It is still early days in the New Year and we’re looking forward to a 2015 full of culinary highlights. Here’s a line-up of past, present and future to succumb to.
Last year, the gang behind Tjoget opened up the wine bar Hornstulls Bodega on Hornsbruksgatan 24. The atmosphere at this new hangout for wine lovers is lively and relaxed.
November 2014 saw the opening of 39 Wäst in the space formerly occupied by fine-dining restaurant Jonas at Fleminggatan. 39 Wäst is a neighbourhood spot serving Swedish food with influences from the Mediterranean.
Surfers, the popular spot on the island of Gotland, now also has a Stockholm outpost on Regeringsgatan 88. Owners Mymland Isenborg and Jonathan Bergström have opted for south-eastern Chinese cuisine.
With a new venue on Birger Jarlsgatan 41, there is a lot of excitement surrounding the expansion of Bar Central with Robert Rudinski, the man behind the restaurant, promising to keep exploring the Eastern European cuisine at the new address.
Meanwhile, Publico has opened up in F12’s old facilities on Fredsgatan 12, where one can enjoy South American flavours.
Chef Olle T Cellton is teaming up with the three guys from the now defunct wine bar Gaston to set up Tuppen on Roslagsgatan 6 later this year.
This summer, Villa Wera is set to open up in Solna Strand. The chef trio consisting of Andreas Hedlund, Johan Lundström and Jenny Härstam Hedlund will offer lunch as well as deli sandwiches to go.
Nobis, the hospitality group behind a few of the city’s most gorgeous hotels, feels Stockholm lacks a great pizza. Therefore, this will be remedied at Nobis Pizzeria on Sveavägen this spring.
