Since the real Brasserie Lipp in Paris, that Hemingway favorite, has fallen off in its standards, this bistro now serves even better fare than the original. Opened in 1987 on Gothenburg's busiest avenue, the brasserie serves cuisine inspired by the legendary Left Bank bistro in Paris, tweaked for Swedish tastes. For example, the menu includes escargots in garlic-butter sauce, Lipp's Skagen toast (piled high with fresh shrimp), a tender Swedish entrecôte of beef with Dijon mustard sauce, grilled halibut with garlic-tomato sauce, and a savory Thai chicken. There's also choucroute garnie (sauerkraut with sausage and pork, the most famous dish served at its Paris namesake), as well as many different kinds of fish, most caught in the waters near Gothenburg.
