A Swedish actress who is a frequent visitor told us (somewhat enigmatically), "The food here is better than it should be." And so it is. In a patrician residence dating from 1873, adjacent to the Hotell Diplomat, this is the finest and most innovative restaurant in Stockholm. Seating only 30 people, it has a vaguely Art Deco decor, beamed ceilings, and dark paneling. Perfectly prepared main dishes include sautéed medallion of fjord salmon, scallops, and scampi in lobster sauce; crisp breast of duck with caramelized orange sauce; and juniper-stuffed noisettes of reindeer immersed in caraway sauce with portabella. Chef Norbert Lang also prepares a tantalizing terrine of scallops in saffron sauce. The foie gras is the finest in town.
