Restaurant- Roxy

Yesterday evening a friend and I went to one of my favorite restaurants... Roxy! This is one of those restaurants that I think really deliver on food, location and service. It is located right on Nytorget square in the SoFo neighborhood, one of the most vibrant parts of Stockholm. The staff are very personable and give great service. You feel like a "regular" guest even if it is your first visit.

The menu leans towards Spanish cuisine and there is something for everyone including some great vegetarian dishes. I really had trouble deciding what to get, but finally I chose their Spanish version of Beef Bourguignon made with pork (Pata Negra). I wasn't disappointed... it was the perfect dish with a winter storm raging outside. For dessert we both took the "avec kit": espresso or cappuccino, dark chocolate truffel and your choice of calvados, cognac or pear liqueur.
It is easy to get to Roxy's from the hotel. It's 15 minutes or so if you walk, otherwise the closest subway station is Skanstull (green line). The SoFo neighborhood is filled with great shops, so Roxy would be the perfect place for an early dinner after doing some Christmas shopping.
