One of Sweden’s most celebrated restaurants and the recipient of three Michelin stars continues to wow critics with amazing cuisine in its new site in Stockholm.
Frantzen restaurant is a 23-seat culinary destination named after its chef Björn Frantzén. It is the first restaurant in Sweden to gain the ultimate third star. Relocated in 2017, Frantzen restaurant is set across three storeys of a spruced-up 19th-century townhouse in Klara Norra kyrkogata 26, Stockholm.
Chef Björn Frantzén belongs to the fresh wave of Nordic star chefs offering top international dining with strong focus on nature and seasonal produce. Björn Frantzén succeeded in creating a contemporary counter restaurant where he serves delicious food in a laid-back setting, focused on the very best products prepared in the technically best ways. Superiority is in the details, and Björn Frantzén clearly is a master of culinary details.
Frantzén’s tasting menu is a unique hybrid of Nordic cuisine that marries classic and modern techniques inspired by local and international tradition with Asian notes. At both lunch and dinner the restaurant serves a multi-course tasting menu (around 10 courses with appetizers and sweets). Dishes include the likes of langoustine tail fried with puffed rice and a clarified butter and ginger dip and Japanese egg custard with pork broth, chives and umami seaweed-dusted crisp skin.
As the new Frantzen restaurant is five times the size of the old premises, it has presented the team with the challenge of working across multiple floors for the first time, the larger space has allowed for the introduction of new cooking techniques, including over fire. Dishes include barbecue Swedish yellow duck with truffled endive and a pressed duck sauce.
