Luzette, a modern brasserie from the same owners as Riche, Sturehof, Teatergrillen and Taverna Brillo, is housed in historic premises in Stockholm's main railway station and it oozes classic grand central station vibes from early morning until late at night. The international atmosphere makes itself felt in the bar as well as the restaurant and it's the perfect spot to stop for a quick cup of coffee or glass of wine. If you're in a rush while waiting for a train, the restaurant has express seats.
The inspiration for Luzette comes from historic railway station brasseries such as those in Paris and New York. The listed premises are from 1871 and the walls and floor have retained their original features. The rest of the restaurant has been designed by the celebrated architect Jonas Bohlin using materials such as granite, marble, tiling and brass. The name is inspired by the iconic 'Luzette' ceiling lamp designed by Peter Behrens in the Twenties, a smaller version of which hangs in the restaurant now. Luz, which means light, also refers to the restaurant's wonderful natural light. Come in, take a seat and a pause from the hustle and bustle of Central station, whether you're travelling or not.
Days start early at Luzette with breakfast dishes such as scones, scrambled eggs and porridge. The menu then goes over to plat du jour and à la carte, inspired by classic European dishes. The distinctive rotisserie in the heart of the restaurant produces French-style roast chicken (also available as takeaway). They're open until midnight almost all week, which means you can grab a late supper or buy a meal to take with you on a long train journey. All in all there are 120 covers spread out over the dining room, a bar for quick visits, an al fresco dining area on Vasagatan and tables facing into the central railway hall. You can also book for parties of up to 40 people.
