Karlavägen 76, Östermalm
Occupying a sunny corner space with windows on two sides, Broms is part restaurant, part deli, with a full sit-down experience available three meals a day, plus a fully stocked pantry and counter of takeaway options. The menu offers a mix of Swedish dishes and influences from abroad. For breakfast, try one of their acai bowls, or go for it with a sandwich made with Kalles Kaviar—a fishy Swedish spread that's purchased in graphically appealing toothpaste-style tubes. For dinner, regulars recommended the Swedish meatballs and the salmon sashimi with mango and avocado.
Riddargatan 8, Östermalm
In a city of ever-evolving New Nordic cuisine, PA&Co is refreshingly old school and has obstinately served essentially the same dishes for three decades. While the food may not be cutting the culinary edge, this bistro still attracts Stockholm's perennially trendy fashion and media crowd night after night. Serving up classics like meatballs and beef Rydberg (beef tenderloin, crispy potatoes, and rich onion marmalade) in a cozy space with leather sofas, chandeliers, and marble-topped tables, PA&Co definitely requires a reservation (unless you're a regular, in which case you get to walk in).
