The Restaurant

Having binged my way through “ Seaside Hotel”, I was looking for an equally engrossing show when I discovered “The Restaurant”.

It’s like a Swedish cross between Seaside and Downton Abbey.

Here’s a synopsis:

“ The Löwander family – siblings Gustaf, Nina and Peter, and mother Helga – run one of Stockholm’s most popular restaurants. Following scenes of jubilation from when the war ends, the show focuses on the blossoming relationship between wealthy Nina and the kitchen boy Calle, as well as conflict within the family about how to run the business, which Peter discovers has problems. The family disagrees on how to solve the problems, with siblings butting heads while Nina’s passionate affair with Calle scandalises the family. Other romantic complications also cause the stern matriarch Helga many a headache.”

Thank you for the suggestion! I've just added it to my Watchlist. My husband and I are eagerly awaiting the return of Seaside Hotel. I miss Fie. I wish she'd return.

Lindy: I miss Fie too! I love Amanda's character, but Fie was such a central figure to the show. Any word on when Season 9 will be out?

" Season 9 is scheduled to be aired in 2022 depicting the summer of 1945." According to Wikipedia. I cannot wait!

The Seaside Hotel is one of the best hotels I have visited. Every evening, the animation of the hotel arranges amazing shows for vacationers. I advise you to visit a https://tapatoro.restaurant/restaurants-near-convention-center/ restaurant that is very popular today. Tapa Toro is a modern Spanish restaurant specializing in Spanish-style tapas and paella cooked in front of guests. I am a big fan of Spanish culture, so flamenco dancing captures my attention for the whole evening.

Not sure about streaming. I watched it through my library's digital platform, Hoopla. It's on Sundance Now, which I believe you can subscribe to on Apple TV and Amazon Prime.
