There are so many fantastic, hip and fun restaurants in Stockholm, it will makes my head spin. Stockholm is undoubtedly a hot spot for contemporary and really good food.
But the one I think of as “my restaurant”, year after year, is PA&Co. A small, cozy Swedish bistro with a HUGE reputation. PA&Co serves modern takes on traditional Swedish dishes.
Every time I go back to visit my home town I will make sure to pay PA&Co a visit. They never ever let me down. The people watching is good too. Many famous faces here!
In 2007 PA & Co came out with its greatly anticipated cook book. It became a instant success and was awarded the Grand Prize of “Best All Categories” for Meal Literature of The Year by The Swedish Meal Academy. I am definitely picking up a copy on my next visit to Sweden (so far only written in Swedish).
The jury’s motivation:
”After having built its popularity on continuity for more than 20 years, PA&Co is a classic restaurant which has fine-tuned its unique cuisine of powerful flavors, gusto and elegance. This beautiful book sums up the dining room’s cultural spawning ground and the kitchen’s bold crossing of Swedish home cooking, The Mediterranean and Asia in the straightforward, no-nonsense manner which has become the restaurant’s signature.”
