Leijontornet Wine List
Restaurateur Daniel Crespi and his gastronomic team have always held the banner of creativity high in their neighbourhood in Old Town, Stockholm. New restaurants and concepts have come and gone in a steady stream over the years, but now they have instead chosen one main focus, and in September they re-opened Restaurant Leijontornet after 13 years. (This replaces the famous restaurant of theirs: Djuret)
The food is first class and so obviously made with the wine in focus, with dishes such as duck liver minced quail, double breaded Cotoletta Milanese and fried turbot. Generous and with depth in flavours, but always in great balance.
And the wine list? Well, Leijontornet houses one of the biggest wine cellars in the country, so there are plenty of great wines for every taste, and also at a very decent price level. Around a hundred wines by the glass if you want to drink a lot of different styles, or you can, of course, start browsing the full cellar list. The service is warm, knowledgeable and relaxed.
