Plush red-velvet chairs furnish this glass box cantilevered high over the street below. Along with the views, the landmark restaurant serves refined local dishes like carpaccio of salmon with mango dressing, courtesy of celebrity chef Erik Lallerstedt.
Known to locals as F12, this decade-old haunt draws Stockholm's smart set with creative Swedish cuisine (think dishes like grilled reindeer dusted with cocoa and Ethiopian spices). The pastel-green interior is decked out with sleek Mario Bellini furniture and Modernist paintings. Reservations essential.
