Boudoir style dining

16 Apr

Brasserie Le Rouge in Stockholm’s Old Town is not your average basement dining. It is a fantasy boudoir with tons of red and golden draping covering the brick vaults. Red lamps and a red carpet perfects the impression. It feels very welcoming and cozy, and combined with good service and excellent food, it’s well worth to book a table if you’re in the neighborhood.

I enjoyed a perfectly cooked sea bass with melted butter and fresh spring veggies for dinner last night.

For afters I chose the pot au creme, a delicious mini dessert, layers of chocolate mousse, cherries and lightly whipped cream served in a small glass. Very yummy!

When dinner is through, there are also two bars on the premises, one in the next vault and one upstairs, Le Bar Rouge which also offers appetizers and bar foods.

In summer it’s really nice to enjoy curbside “wining and dining” after strolling around in these atmospheric surroundings of the medieval old part of Stockholm. Quite a few of the houses here dates back to the 13th century.
