Radmansgatan 16 / 46 (0)84115535
This new Stockholm foodie hotspot is the brainchild of Matbaren alumni Adam Dahlberg and his business partner Albin, who recently turned their pop-up dining space into a permanent restaurant – Adam/Albin. The 50-seat restaurant offers a five-course set menu of classic Swedish dishes, all presented beautifully, for around £80-90. The pair started by running food courses, which they continue with, where dishes included scallops and prawns in tiger’s milk, and lemon sorbet with lemon cream, meringue and juniper, so expect similarly impressive dishes at the new venue.
