Stockholm Restaurants in the Michelin Guide 2014
click here!) The day that foodies and the culinary world have waited for in nervous anticipation is finally here: the 2014 Michelin Guide has been released. And it is mostly good news for Stockholm restaurants! Two new restaurants have received one star each. Many were hoping that one of our two 2 star restaurants would get a third star or that Esperanto would finally get their second star... but no such luck. One other piece of good news is that it was announced that, in 2015, the Nordic countries will get their own special guide which will include restaurants in smaller cities and towns. Currently Sweden is part of the European city guide which only includes restaurants in major cities.
Here is a quick explanation of the Michelin Guide's star system: one star means that it is "a very good restaurant in its category", two stars mean that the restaurant offers "excellent cooking, worth a detour" and three stars are awarded to restaurants with "exceptional cuisine, worth a special journey". The Guide also has a special award called Bib Gourmand for restaurants with "good food at moderate prices". Here is the list for Stockholm:
|The Food Bar (Matbaren) at Mathias Dahlgren.|
- Mathias Dahlgren Matsalen (2 stars)
- Restaurant Frantzén (2 stars)
- Esperanto (1 star)
- Ekstedt (1 star)
- Gastrologik (1 star)
- Mathias Dahlgren Matbaren (1 star)
- F12 (1 star) EDIT- has closed and will open soon, hopefully, at a new location.
- Oaxen Krog (NEW- 1 star)
- Operakällaren (NEW- 1 star)
And the Stockholm restaurants on the Bib Gourmand list are: Sjögräs (around the corner from the Rival Hotel), Den Gyldene Freden, Proviant, Brasserie Bonbonne, EAT, Pubologi, Ulla Winbladh, Rolf's Kök and Oaxen Slip (new!).
|Operakällaren- one of the restaurants which received a new star!|
Please keep in mind that if you wish to dine at one of the Michelin star restaurants... reserving a table ahead of time is required! Often several weeks in advance. If you are going to be staying at the Rival Hotel, contact me in advance for help in making a reservation. Click here if you wish to see past guides and other restaurant awards. Last week I visited Mathias Dahlgren and will be writing about it soon... so stay tuned! In the meantime you can read my other restaurant reviews/recommendations by clicking here.
