A welcoming and inclusive yet creative restaurant.Animo is one of this past year's most talked-about openings. When chef Anders Karlsson and Daniel Haynes - who both have done their fair share in the Swedish culinary landscape - joined forces and opened this place at the end of last year, the aspiration was to form a welcoming and inclusive yet creative restaurant.Newer establishments in the city often tend to feature menus that read like cover bands of other successful restaurants. But not this one. The menu includes well-composed and playful dishes with intriguing flavor combinations and textures. Some are prepared in innovative ways that will leave you wondering if they’ve been done before. Chanterelles with crispy sweetbread, pickled chili and licorice… why not?Animo means soul in Esperanto, a friendly nod from the chefs who once worked with Sayan Isaksson in the house just across the street. In this locale - which is somewhat hidden from the hustle and bustle - many restaurants have unfortunately been struggling in the past. But I'm pretty sure that Animo has just started its ride on the path of success and will continue to flourish.
A relaxed restaurant you wished you had next door
