Three new Swedish Michelin Guide restaurants
There are three new Swedish restaurants to be found in this year’s Michelin Guide. Two of them are restaurants in Stockholm (Ekstedt and Gastrologik), the third is found in Göteborg (Sjömagasinet, which regained the star it used to hold earlier), writes Michelin Nordic in a press release. The three restaurants get their stars in the new Guide Michelin Main Cities of Europe, which also features two Rising Star restaurants: Operakällaren in Stockholm, and Bhoga in Göteborg. Both Mathias Dahlgren Matsalen and Frantzén/Lindeberg continue to receive two stars in the guide.
“Whether you look for a first-class restaurant or a cozy neighborhood joint, the anonymous inspectors at Michelin have done a great selection of what the best Stockholm and Göteborg have to offer,” says Carl Stenson, Director of Information for Michelin North.
