Hantverk & Found
Stylish, welcoming, diverse – these are just some of the words that spring to mind in relation to Hantverk & Found. Set across two Georgian merchants’ buildings in the heart of the Old Town, the space boasts a popular restaurant and an adjacent bar where the team offers natural wine and small plates with no reservations taken. The restaurant offers a more formal experience and booking is advised. In the summer sun, diners also spill out into the enchanting south-facing courtyard – a sheltered haven of jasmine, figs and vines with space for 15 covers.
Head chef Kate de Syllas combines locally sourced produce with an insightful knowledge of international cuisine to create food that is exquisitely imaginative. The weekly changing menu brings together the freshest catch and the latest seasonal produce to create perfectly complementing flavours. A growing selection of plant-based dishes makes up nearly half of the offering, ensuring that vegetarian and vegan visitors are well catered for with dishes like crisp arancini stuffed with porcini, scamorza and Jerusalem artichokes. The kitchen team emulates the Japanese approach to seafood, cooking it with respect and creativity. Savour the likes of whole Dover sole poached in dashi, sake and miso, served with wakame and shiitake mushrooms. You’ll also see notable Moroccan influences in dishes like local red mullet tagine with preserved lemons, saffron, harissa and salt pickles. For those looking for a more casual dining experience, Hantverk & Found also offers lunchtime deals including a popular market lunch on Thursdays and Fridays.
