Stockholm, Sweden

Solen

What’s the restaurant in a nutshell?

Opening its doors in the spring of 2023, Solen – which translates to “the sun” – is the creation of chef duo Adam Dahlberg and Albin Wessman, who are also behind the Michelin-star restaurant Adam/Albin. Making a grand entrance into the Slakthus area, Stockholm’s former meatpacking district now known for its burgeoning culinary and cultural scene, Solen draws inspiration from Los Angeles’ bustling restaurant scene. Offering a diverse menu showcasing flavours from South America, the Middle East and Southern Europe, Solen boasts a mix of modern and historical design elements. The restaurant’s decor creates a welcoming atmosphere, blending materials such as solid wood, granite, leather and stainless steel with simplistic and relaxing architecture.

What are the signature dishes?

The creative vision of chefs Dahlberg and Wessman is reflected in Solen’s innovative menu, which blurs the lines between various culinary traditions. Serving up silky hummus, hand-cut steak tartare, tomatillo salsa, handmade pasta, wood-fired pizzas and pita bread, the restaurant caters to diverse palates. The menu also features a range of grilled meats, poultry, fish and vegetables, all prepared according to the duo’s food philosophy. A standout dish is the crème brûlée, topped with jamon iberico, dates and hazelnuts, showcasing the chefs’ talent for blending contrasting flavours.
