Bonnie’s is one of the hottest culinary experiences in Stockholm, earning a well-deserved award for Business Restaurant of the Year last year. Among many other highlights from the menu, be sure not to miss Smash the Piggy Bank, the restaurant’s outstanding chocolate dessert.
Bank Hotel is a stylish boutique hotel in Stockholm, jam-packed with history and elegance. Bonnie’s is the hotel’s main restaurant, located in the impressive bank hall with a six-metre-high glass ceiling that floods the space with light. Just like the hotel, the restaurant boosts luxurious interiors with details from the building’s heritage as a bank, such as the classic checked floor and lush, green seating.
The modern cuisine is international, made with the best local produce available, and two dishes in particular stand out: firstly, the tasty Poached Witch Flounder with Sandefjord sauce and four kinds of roe; and secondly, of course, the not-to-miss, delicious chocolate dessert Smash the Piggy Bank, Bonnie’s hallmark and, unsurprisingly, a mega hit on Instagram. Chocolate, strawberry bavarois, vanilla ice cream, strawberries, hazelnuts and fudge sauce – who could resist such a treat?
Awarded business restaurant
For 35 years, the Swedish newspaper Dagens Industri has presented Sweden’s oldest restaurant prize. Last year, Bonnie’s won the prestigious Business Restaurant of the Year, an indication of its successful gastronomic concept. “Our guests love the food as well as the setting in the bank hall,” confirms head chef Janne Holopainen. “We will continue in the same spirit, focusing on continuity and doing what we do really well.”
After a wonderful dinner, the evening continues at the hotel with three more bars, in addition to the one at Bonnie’s. The Papillon Bar is an elegant, intimate cocktail bar with design inspired by the bank director’s personal office. Discreetly tucked behind sweeping curtains, Sophie’s Bar is more modern, with upbeat music and fabulous cocktails. And the terrace bar, Le Hibou, on the top floor, has an amazing view of the city and interiors inspired by an exclusive Parisian suite.
Bonnie’s serves breakfast, lunch and dinner, seven days a week.
