Brasserie Astoria in central Stockholm is the latest Frantzén group address and it is an impressive opening. A venue to behold, and the same goes for the crowd. The cuisine is respectful of the classics and the service is at the level you would expect for a top venue like this.

Farang takes guests on a journey to Southeast Asian cuisines. The restaurant is located in an old factory hall and the rustic backdrop contrasts with the warm atmosphere. The restaurant is decidedly high end - great food. The bar in the front is cool and serves simpler dishes. For a fine dining lunch experience, this is one of my main choices in Stockholm.

What can we say? The food is amazing, which is a given with chef Stefan Ekengren. Great ambiance, service and with a concise and modern wine list. Sweden, Kazakhstan and USA mingle with producers from more classical wine regions, but not necessarily made in classical styles. Lots of good things to choose from, at decent price points.

But even though it's been open for ever (or more than 30 years), it can still get packed - reservations are wise. The restaurateurs are Johan Jureskog and Klas Ljungquist - the team behind AG.
