Three Swedish restaurants are among the world’s top 100
A restaurant in Spain has taken the number-one spot in a list of the world’s best eateries from Noma in Copenhagen. Highly acclaimed Noma had been first in the list compiled by UK-based Restaurant Magazine for three years running, always with El Celler de Can Roca, located in Girona, Catalonia, in second place. But now El Celler is top.
However, Sweden is celebrating with three restaurants in the world’s top 100. Frantzén/Lindeberg in Stockholm, 95% of whose ingredients are sourced locally, rose from last year’s 20th to 12th. It offers “simplicity and purity of flavour, with cutting-edge wizardry”, the magazine writes. “Chefs Björn Frantzen and Daniel Lindeberg have made major strides in proving that it’s not just their Danish counterparts who lead the Scandi food revolution.”
The other two Swedish restaurants on the list are Fäviken Magasinet in Järpen in 34th place, and Matsalen at the Grand Hotel in Stockholm in 55th.
