Restaurant Kungsholmen


(Name and concept changed... now called Trattorian and is an Italian restaurant!) Last night I went with friends, visiting from England and Australia, to Kungsholmen... one of my all-time favorite summer restaurants. Owned by celebrity chef Melker Andersson, it is located right on the waterfront on the island of Kungsholmen. It has a fun concept, sort-of a high end version of the food court at a shopping center. That might sound strange, but it really works. The dining room is surrounded by several kitchens(sushi, grill, Swedish, luxury, etc;) represented in the menu... lots to choose from! What really makes this restaurant stand out, especially in the summer, is the ambiance and the location. Very popular, a cool clientele and views over the water on long summer evenings... the area has become a Stockholm Riviera of sorts with several restaurants popping up on the waterfront, such as M/S Gerda and Mälarpaviljongen, with most of them having areas built out over the water. Great area to bar-hop, having cocktails, listening to lounge DJs under the late night sun...
