Marble table and gray tile. Bar stools in cognac leather, brass lamps and a bar dressed in wood paneling. The interior of newly opened NyKo Kitchen feels international and New York inspired. The neighborhood restaurant opened in May 2017 in Café Mocco’s old premises in the corner of Nybrogatan and Kommendörsgatan on Östermalm.
It was Café Mocco’s founder, Panos Zois, who saw a changing buying behavior. Guests who previously came for coffee are now buying take away coffee at the larger chains. Instead, most people now want to go out and eat and have a glass of wine or a beer.
Pierre Åström, Panos’ friend for 20 years, has been working in the restaurant industry for a long time and also been a partner in a restaurant. Together they chose to completely renovate the premises and open NyKo Kitchen, a bistro café and neighborhood restaurant with a wide menu.
NyKo Kitchen is a a bistro café and neighborhood restaurant with a relaxed atmosphere and lots of different food on the menu.
The most varied menu at NyKo is the brunch on Saturdays and Sundays between 10 am and 4 pm. You can mix scrambled eggs with truffle, chèvre pizza, pimientos de padron, large cinnamon buns, fluffy pancakes, smoothies, and veal buns.
For breakfast on weekdays between 8 and 11, NyKo Kitchen is serving sandwiches such as Danish rye bread from their own bakery with avocado and fried eggs, and croissants with Gruyère cheese and sauna smoked turkey. On the menu, there are also NyKo bowls: açai bowl with coconut, granola, hemp seeds, fresh berries, and cacao nibs; buckwheat porridge with bee pollen, almond milk, and banana; granola with Turkish yogurt and preserved raw blueberries or fruit salad. Also, you can order omelets, American pastries, juices, coffee, and smoothies.
At lunch, between 11 am and 3 pm on weekdays, you are offered today’s dish and a vegetarian option. In addition to that, you can choose from salads, omelets, two kinds of pizzas and classics like veal meatballs and steak tartare.
The evening menu starts at 3 pm and is a broad mix of different dishes that cost less than 200 SEK. Go for a safe bet like an omelet, pizza or pasta, or any of the standing classics – veal meatballs, steak tartare or Chef’s burger. And if you don’t want Italian, Swedish or American, you can eat tacos or a Hawaiian poke tuna salad instead.
Whether you are a vegetarian, gluten intolerant or just picky we have something for you

In addition to the mixed dishes on the standard menu, NyKo also presents a special menu when you book their Chambre separée for up to 40 people. Instead of rent for the premises, you pay for one package per person. And when it comes to bigger parties, Nyko’s versatile cooking is appreciated:
