The Restaurant S2


10 x 60’

In a brand new second season starting in 1955, love stories bloom, high-risk plans are set in motion and dark secrets come to light.

The Löwander family have been running a high-end restaurant Djurgårdskällaren, a classical establishment in Stockholm for decades. Helga is the matriarch and tries to control the everyday lives of her two sons Gustaf, Peter and her daughter Nina.

Following the breakdown of her marriage, Nina has a new lease of life putting energy into making the jazz club successful as well as rebuilding a relationship with her daughter. Her love for Calle remains strong, meanwhile his culinary skills in the kitchen have been rewarded with a promotion. It seems other life factors still prevent them from realising their unrequited love. Despite Peter no longer working in the restaurant his dislike of his brother Gustav grows.

Outside the kitchen, waitress Maggan lobbies to have more female representation within the Trade Union, which sets the context for a changing
Sweden less driven by class divide and more focused on becoming the social
state that we know today.

Over the three series viewers will accompany the Löwander family and the restaurant staff through several decades of success and defeat, love affairs and conflicts, all accompanied by contemporary music and fashion.
