Restaurant Lux Stockholm
Restaurant Lux is off the beaten track on the island of Lilla Essingen and overlooks Marieberg Bay. The early 1900's industrial brick building, with multi-pane windows, was originally an Electrolux factory; the interior, renovated in 2010, consists of soft gray walls, wood floors, and gold ray chandeliers. Nordic cuisine is offered, with an emphasis on seasonal and local products. Recent entrees have included fried duck leg served with duck liver and roasted pumpkin and hazelnut, as well as seared pike-perch with crab mousseline, leeks, watercress, and krasse och skaldjurssky (shellfish sauce).
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
