The Stockholm Michelin stars’ wine lists
One of the reasons we started Star Wine List was because we love to read wine lists before going out. This is especially true of the top restaurants where you want to spend the first part of dinner enjoying the amuses bouches, talking to the sommelier and the others at the table instead of plowing a massive wine list. We’re happy to present the wine lists for several Stockholm Michelin Star restaurants below.
Gastrologik & Speceriet
Phone: +46 8 662 30 60
Address: Artillerigatan 14, 114 51 Stockholm
Gastrologik is another one-star in Stockholm that would have earned more stars had Michelin used the same assessments as in France. Nordic produce delivered in 20 mesmerizing servings that change daily. The wine list focuses on classics in Europe with guest stars from the rest of the wine world. The sister restaurant Speceriet serves simpler dishes at the highest level and has 10 wines on its list that changes daily. Guests at Speceriet can also order wines from Gastrologik’s main wine list.
Phone: +46 8 611 12 10
Address: Humlegårdsgatan 17, 114 46 Stockholm
The fire is still burning at Ekstedt, the food is as good as ever and the service is friendly and professional. The wine list is varied with plenty of natural influences. The wine focus used to be completely old world but newer wine countries have begun make their rounds.
Mathias Dahlgren – Matbaren
Phone: +46 8 679 35 84
Address: Södra Blasieholmshamnen 6, 111 48 Stockholm
Matbaren (the food bar) is Mathias Dahlgren’s modern bistro. A seasonal menu of magical medium sized dishes is served at tables or at the bar, for both lunch and dinner. The wine list focuses on organic and natural wines. Guests can also order wines from the cellar list of Grand Hotel.
Oaxen Krog & Slip
Phone: +46 8 551 531 05
Address: Beckholmsbron 26, 115 21 Stockholm
Oaxen Krog stands for Nordic cuisine delivered at the highest level, rewarded with two Michelin stars. If there were a world cup in gastronomic beauty, Oaxen would win it. The presentations are edible works of art. The wine list at Oaxen is classical with only European selections and it includes verticals of both famous and lesser known producers. In Oaxen’s bistro Slip, you can enjoy a simpler cuisine in a beautiful setting.
Phone: +46 8 676 58 00
Address: Operahuset, Karl XII:s torg, 111 86 Stockholm
Operakällaren in Stockholm’s Opera House is probably the most beautiful dining room in Sweden. And the service is like a scene from the Opera stage, professional, classic and warm. The menu is French-inspired, classical and executed at the highest level (one Michelin star). The wine list is massive, classical and carries over 1500 listings.
Phone: +46 8 30 30 30
Address: Upplandsgatan 45, 113 28 Stockholm
Sushi Sho caused a splash when they were awarded a Michelin Star for their Omakase and Tsumami, the chef’s choice of sushi and small dishes to die for. All is served over the counter at high speed, like a proper Tokyo hangout. The wine and sake list is short but well balanced, and the cellar is growing.
Phone: +46 8 662 34 00
Address: Kommendörsgatan 16, 114 48 Stockholm
Volt is the cosy one-star restaurant that focuses on organic and biodynamic locally-sourced produce. The wine list is also very much in the natural line.
Phone: +46 8 556 361 68
Address: Svartlösavägen 52, 125 33 Älvsjö
One of Sweden’s best restaurants is hidden behind a furniture store in a Stockholm suburb and that is perhaps why it took Michelin a few years to award it a star. If you can find it, you’re rewarded with a very original and sometimes spicy cuisine with influences ranging from Japan to North Africa. To the set menu you can drink a wine pairing or browse the Aloê wine list where France leads the numbers before the US and Italy.
Phone: +46 8 15 02 02
Address: Roslagsgatan 43, 113 54 Stockholm
The wood-fired oven is like a warm heart in the cosy little restaurant on Roslagsgatan. Magical dishes are brought from it by chefs Filip Fastén and Joel Åhlin. The wine list covers around 125 wines with a nice balance between France, Germany, Italy and Spain.
