Riche

Riche (Birger Jarlsgatan 4, Stockholm) — Founded in 1893, Riche strove to imitate it´s Parisian model, Café Riche on Boulevard des Italiens, in interior decoration as well as in character. Starched linen tablecloths, elegant gold-framed mirrors on the walls and crystal chandeliers in the ceilings created an environment that made solid bourgeoisie, officers and gentlefolk feel at home.  Simpler dishes such as Swedish meatballs, herring & cheese, prime rib stew with steamed potatoes and fried salt herring with onion sauce are served here, along with various meals with other European influences.  Along with the dining, there’s also a lively Yuppie-driven bar scene.
