Bar Central is the brainchild of restaurateur Boban Rudinski, as a tribute to his grandmother from Budapest. Based around the hearty cuisine of Germany, Hungary and Austria, the praised restaurant offers dishes such as pasties, stews and soups, schnitzel and homemade sausages with sauerkraut. “Before we opened, there were no real Central European restaurants in Stockholm,” says Rudinski. “We wanted to highlight traditional cooking and great produce, but package it slightly differently. At Bar Central, it’s a bit more modern and stylish, without being luxurious.” In January 2018, Bar Central was included in Condé Nast Traveller’s list of the most beautiful restaurants in the world.
