STOCKHOLM’S CONTEMPORARY CAFE
This blog has an affection for museum/gallery restaurants. Regular readers this summer have been to London’s new Tate Museum addition (June 16) and the revitalized café (July 14) in the Louvre in Paris. Now, we’re in Stockholm, where we visit the restaurant and bar inside Fotografiska, a gallery of contemporary photography.
Open since 2010, the museum’s culinary efforts also have been bringing raves to the Swedish capital. Built in what was a 1906 art nouveau warehouse, Fotografiska is located on Sodermalm, a hipster island with amazing views of central Stockholm.
Fotografiska is one of the world’s largest meeting places for contemporary photography. Four unique large exhibitions and about 20 smaller exhibitions are presented annually. Book and souvenir shop, restaurant and a photo gallery. The top floor is where you’ll find the café and bar, which recently won the prestigious Gold Dragon Award and is run by the well-known chef Paul Svensson. The concept focuses on green seasonal dishes. Check the website for live music attractions.
