One of Söder’s treats
Like at its sister restaurant Babette in Vasastan that opened in 2015, the atmosphere at Café Nizza is characterised by the well-renowned ownership team. The carefree attitude, down-played food arrangements and relaxed but knowledgeable wine service is understandable when you know that their previous experience comes from star restaurants like Frantzén and Fäviken where the work in the strictly formatted dining rooms is rigorous and prescribed. And if, like Café Nizza, you plan to be open from noon to midnight all week long, you have to be able to relax. The wine selection is refreshingly different, partly because one of the restaurateurs runs a wine import company with a niche portfolio, partly because the gang’s collective years at the aforementioned restaurants has given them a network that extends to the most obscure producers and importers. Here the dishes change every lunch and dinner, but are served on the same round, toned-down, white porcelain. The offerings at lunch have been a little uneven. Sometimes sad, sometimes sleepy. But the evenings are already proving that the place suits their Södermalm clientele to a T. Especially when the extra leaves go into the round wooden table in the middle of the tiled dining room floor to accommodate a large party. Then this place could just as easily pass for a noisy neighbourhood restaurant in Paris...
