New opening: Restaurant Ruben extends the restaurant strip on Malmskillnadsgatan with a new major investment

In May, restaurant duo Ruben Blomdahl and Douglas Fagerman open the doors to their second joint project, Restaurant Ruben. The pub will be a gastronomic melting pot with inspiration from different chapters of Rubens and Douglas’ long careers which have taken them to both the World Cup & Olympic gold and travels between five continents. The food philosophy behind Restaurant Ruben is precisely the cultural clashes from their travels. The menu offers a tasty journey that finds inspiration from Italy, Asia, Nordic cuisine and Africa.

– We think there is a lack of a neighborhood restaurant in Stockholm City and want to create a food destination with diversity both on the plate and in the type of guests. The common thread is playfulness, great flavors and a place where you feel at home.It should be an accessible place for a glass of wine before the cinema, dinner with the mother-in-law or celebrating a birthday with a group of friends, says Ruben Blomdahl

Merit team in kitchen and dining room

For the opening in May, in addition to Ruben and Douglas, there is a dream line-up in place with restaurant manager Sarah Karlsson, recently moved home from Brasserie Astoria in Singapore, kitchen managers Joel Sundqvist who most recently comes from the pots at Fotografiska, Emmer & Bleck and Thorbjörn Liljemark who most recently comes from Kasten and Allegrine.

The wine list and menus will rotate according to both the mood of the kitchen and the time of year, with some dishes only surviving a couple of hours at a time on the chalkboard. To celebrate spontaneity, half of the seats are always non-bookable to always have the opportunity to walk by when the mood strikes.Ruben is open for lunch and dinner, 7 days a week.

Interior with personality

With the opening, Ruben becomes another piece of the puzzle in the restaurant strip from Brunkebergstorg down to Jakobsbergsgatan. Behind the interior are the award-winning architects CJ Studio who have been tasked with creating a welcoming living room that contrasts with the surrounding sixties architecture. The wall art, ceramics, mural paintings and graphic design are created by the designer and newly published author Emeli Mårtensson (“Lipari”, Forum Förlag). Ruben will have approx. 70 seats in the dining room and 24 seats in a Chambre Separée and is located at Malmskillnadsgatan 29. The name Ruben comes from one part of the restaurant duo, Ruben Blomdahl.
