When Restaurant Frantzén re-opened in September 2018, they quickly and justly gained a lot of attention, and only half a year later the restaurant was awarded three Michelin stars – the first and only three-star in Sweden. The venue itself is spacious and light, and the dining experience takes place in different rooms and different floors. You start with some appetizers in the livingroom-like lounge and then eat the main courses seated by the wooden bar right in front of the open kitchen.

Savant is a wine bar in Stockholm that changes profile during the day. From early morning it's a café and later in the day it turns into a neighbourhood wine bar with charcuteries and some small dishes. Everything is built around sustainability and the wines are in the natural style. Photos: Dan Lepp, Sandra Backlund

When winemakers arrive in Stockholm, it's not rare to find them here. The hearty French-inspired classical bistro cuisine is very wine-friendly and with its generous opening-hours all days of the week - it's a sure bet if other places are closed. But even though it's been open for ever (or more than 30 years), it can still get packed - reservations are wise. The restaurateurs are Johan Jureskog and Klas Ljungquist - the team behind AG.
