Kungsholmen, Stockholm

Norr Mälarstrand, Kajplats 464
Tel: 46 8 5052 4450's insider take:

Kungsholmen is a bold, colorful, loud restaurant where waiters flit between a series of food bars (grill, sushi, ice cream, soup, and so forth) to assemble orders. After the summer 2006 opening, trendy guests immediately descended here to nosh on moules marinière, pizza niçoise, sashimi, and banana splits. It has hasn't slowed down yet, so book ahead to be sure of a table. In summer, there's also a wildly popular outdoor bar on a floating jetty that juts out into the harbor (the restaurant is on an island of the same name, just a short walk past City Hall). Kungsholmen's success is no surprise, as this establishment comes from good stock—it's a sibling of Grill and Fredsgatan 12, which also skillfully combine high fashion with great food.
