STOCKHOLM, Feb 20 — Michelin inspectors have given Sweden their first and only three-starred restaurant, bestowing the guide’s highest honor to chef Bjorn Frantzen’s Stockholm eatery Frantzen.
In the 2018 edition of Michelin Guide Nordic, Frantzen unlocked a third star for offering what international director Michael Ellis called a unique dining experience.
“Bjorn Frantzén has created a unique vision of Nordic cuisine, combining sublime ingredients with astounding culinary techniques,” Ellis said in a statement.
“Bjorn Frantzén’s gastronomic expression is truly worth the journey, and is a gustatory experience like no other.”
Food is described as modern, Nordic cuisine, with Japanese influences.
Other big winners of the new Nordic guide include Daniel Berlin in Skane Tranas, Sweden, which earned two stars, and Kadeau in Copenhagen, Denmark, which also gained a second star.
Denmark has expanded their one-star club with two new restaurants; Sweden now has three new single-starred eateries; while Finland and Norway each have one. — AFP-Relaxnews
