After shopping to the point of exhaustion, Tures, situated in one of Östermalm’s most easily accessible malls, will come as a welcome break for a quality snack or more substantial lunch. Its image as more café than restaurant results from its location amid Stockholm’s most chic fashion stores, even though its service, décor and standard of food deserve restaurant status.
rnAs it sits in the middle of a constant stream of shoppers and Östermalm elite, coming here for a low-profile bite to eat is not an option. Instead you should focus on a spot of people-watching with the expectation of being closely observed yourself. Young and cool, this is a meeting-place for the local beauties and, come Friday evenings, a chance for equally glamorous professionals to let their hair down at the very conspicuous bar.
rnNo problems finding Tures, since with huge photographs of luscious red lips among other abstract wall hangings, the place appears decadently fascinating, especially when lit up in the evenings. Combine this with its elegant clientele and the popularity of bars such as Grodan just across the way, and you have the ingredients for overall star appeal, whether over a croque monsieur at midday or melting calves’ liver for an early dinner.
