“We want to create a place where people want to be, then you’ll need well-cooked food,” says Tobias Edberg, manager of Västermalmsgallerian. Said Azaresh said yes to rebuilding his former Café DubbelW to a restaurant and a collaboration with the master chef Crister Svantesson began.
Crister was trained to be a chef in the early 1970s, at a time when the Swedish restaurant food mostly was made up of preserved vegetables and ready-made potatoes. During food tours with the famous Swedish chef Leif Mannerström to the top restaurants in France, he was inspired by the French food passion. The French cuisine focused on the raw ingredients and the food was only prepared after the guest had ordered. In order to use fresh vegetables, Svantesson and Mannerström opened a wholesale chain. In 1974, the two chefs opened the restaurant Johanna in Gothenburg, and some of the classics on the menu have now revived at Le Bistro.
Stop by whenever you want, we always have something to serve
– Said Azaresh –
Le Bistro opened its doors in October 2016, and today the chef is Anders Dahl. Everything that’s served at Le Bistro is made of organic high quality raw ingredients. Instead of traditional minimalist French dishes, they offer French homely cooking with a modern touch. Try dishes like Provencal fish and seafood casserole, Le Bistro’s rib burger with French fries, Gruyére cheese, pineapple and apples coleslaw or Steak tartare with roasted cauliflower, salt baked beet, fried salsify, Hollandaise sauce made of fried butter and soy-roasted almonds.
Le Bistro also has a rotisserie – an old cooking method where the meat is roasted on rotating spits. The method produces the finest from the raw ingredients, and the meat gets more juicy because it’s roasted in its own gravy. Order rotisserie lamb with roasted root vegetables and red wine sauce, or corn chicken with truffle mayo, roasted root vegetables and tomato salad. On the drinks menu you will find French wines carefully selected for the dishes.
The lunch menu is varied from week to week, but always includes levine bread from Petite France, soup, salad and organic coffee.
Nowadays, Le Bistro also serves a weekend brunch between 10 am and 3 pm. Choose from two options: scrambled eggs, bacon, chorizo, beans in tomato sauce, sourdough bread and tomato salad; Or Eggs Benedict, marinated salmon, Hollandaise sauce, baked eggs and tomato salad. In addition, you get coffee, a cake, juice or smoothie, and roasted muesli with sour milk.
“Stop by whenever you want, we always have something to serve,” says Said.
