The first Swedish restaurant to get three stars in the Michelin Guide

During an award ceremony at Copenhagen City Hall on 19 February, the Nordic region’s most brilliant restaurants, according to the Michelin Guide, were presented with their stars. The shower of stars over Restaurant Frantzén was unprecedented. Björn Frantzén’s luxury restaurant, located on Stockholm’s Norra Kyrkogata, is Sweden’s first to be awarded three of the prestigious stars.

“Björn Frantzén has created a unique vision for Nordic food, combining sublime ingredients with amazing culinary techniques. His gastronomic expression is truly worth the journey and is a gustatory experience like no other,” writes Michael Ellis, International Director of the Michelin Guide, in a press release.

Daniel Berlin in Skåne Tranås received his second star, while Sav outside Malmö, Aloë in Älvsjö and Agrikultur in Stockholm received one star each. Since the first Michelin Guide star was awarded to a Swedish restaurant in 1984, the country can now proudly boast having 26 restaurants and 31 stars in the Michelin Guide.
