Select evenings during the week I transform my home into an intimate restaurant.
The food I serve is inspired by Asia, the season and the raw produce.
We are open Wednesday-Friday, serve a tasting menue with carefully selected drinks.
A bighearted warm welcome! /Johan with family
After working at the restaurants Spring, Berns Asiatiska and Den Gyldene Freden, Johan Lindqvist decided to start a restaurant at home. Simply because he wanted to return to what he loves most; the raw produce, the craftsmanship and the interaction with the dining guests.
The name Villa Brännugnen (the furnace) derives from the label of the neighbourhood Brännugnen; where the house is located. Today, Johan is the only one burning the wood, smoking and grilling.

The menu changes every week or even through the day. Johan likes to improvise, so there might be a surprise or two during your dining experience.

Villa Brännugnen is located in the small residential area of Stora Mellansjö, approximately 15 minutes from the center of Stockholm. Once at the villa, you have a beautiful vista over the Lake Magelungen and within a stone's throw away is the recreational area Ågesta and adjoining golf course. In the wintertime, this location is perfect for cross country skiing or going on the lake for a skating tour.
