Chef Danyel Couet has previously worked with Melker Andersson and the F12 group of restaurants. He now runs Allegrine, a French restaurant in the heart of Stockholm named after Couet's paternal grandmother. His cooking is inspired by his French heritage and he serves uncomplicated French cuisine with a contemporary twist. Allegrine's little sister restaurant Bar Étable is just across the street.
Daniel's grandmother is the inspiration behind much of what he creates in the kitchen and his lifelong passion for classic, unpretentious French cooking. Ingredients such as thyme, garlic, aromatic spices, onion, lentils, asparagus and strongly flavoured sausages have a special place in Daniel's heart, but you'll also find everything from lobster to veal sweetbreads and octopus on the menu. Ingredients are carefully selected and often seasonal. French flavours permeate the entire meal, from the first bite of your starter till the last drop of wine in your glass.
The restaurant is located by the small square on Kammakargatan, a stone's throw from Sveavägen. The decor is modern and stylish with dark walls meeting blonde wood and touches of colour. There are tables for both small and large groups, whether you want to take a seat or pull up a stool at the bar. You can also book the chef's table, where you and your group will share a special set menu.
