A mignardise at Restaurant Alain Senderens

Sweden gets its first 3-star restaurant

A Swedish restaurant has for the first time been awarded three Michelin stars, or three macarons as one also says in France. The one who has manged this achievement is Björn Frantzén at his Restaurant Frantzén in Stockholm. Björn previously had a 2-star restaurant in Gamla Stan, the Old Town, but in 2017 he moved […]

Brasserie Makalös in Stockholm | restaurant review

If you want French atmosphere in Stockholm, go to Brasserie Makalös, a stone’s throw from Kungsträdgården in the city centre. Here the waiters speaks Swedish with a French accent (you can speak French with them if you prefer) and the menu includes French classics like boeuf bourguignon, onion soup, grilled entrecote, snails with garlic butter, […]

Recommendations for wine bars in Stockholm?

I am about to go to Stockholm for a few days and have to fill the days with something. What better than to explore all the wine bars in Stockholm? It seems to have cropped up a lot of new wine bars in Stockholm in recent years (if not months). I asked for advice and […]

GQ wine bar and restaurant, Stockholm

Restaurang GQ, Stockholm | BKWine Pick

Jürgen Grossmann is a bit of an eminence gris on the Stockholm restaurant scene. Or perhaps not so grey, he actually has quite a reputation. Today he runs GQ. We first encountered his cooking talents at Gässlingen, small restaurant on Söder in Stockholm. That was many years ago. Now he runs a much more sophisticated […]

Duvel Café, Stockholm | BKWine Pick

Don’t be fooled by the name. It’s not a beer hall. The decoration refers back to classic French bistro style with naked wooden tables, wooden floors and linen napkins – but with a modern design flavours (Swedish restaurant somehow must absolutely be ‘designed’). Very centrally located, a short walk (5 minutes) from the central train […]

More restaurants and wine bars in Stockholm | BKWine Pick

Eriks Bakficka (Erik’s Back Pocket) Erik’s Back Pocket is not exactly next door to Eriks Gondolen so he must have big trousers. The Bakficka is close to the Narvavagen street in fashionable Ostermalm. Classic Swedish food (“husmanskost”) mixed with more unusual cooking (for example delicious gnocci). A decent wine list (but far from outstanding). Very […]

Eriks Vinbar, Stockholm | BKWine Pick

Eriks Vinbar (wine bar in Swedish) is at ground level in the same building as the luxury restaurant Eriks Gondolen (from which you have a view over all of Stockholm), close to Slussen. It is a small and cosy place, really a bar and not a restaurant even if you can have some small things […]

Beluga Restaurant, Stockholm | BKWine Pick

The name speaks partially true but don’t let yourself be deterred. They do serve caviar but they also serve real food. Both the menu and the wine list is restricted to a small number of well chosen references. What is particularly interesting is that for each dish they have a suggested wine – and all […]

Terreno Wine Bar, Stockholm | BKWine Pick

Perhaps the most important reason to visit this wine bar is to see how it functions. It built around an original self-service concept: First you have to buy a “wine card”, like a pre-paid phone card. then you go to the “dispensing machine”, insert your card, push the button for the wine you want (don’t […]

Il Fantozzi, Stockholm | BKWine Pick

I can’t claim to be an expert on Italian restaurants in Stockholm but this one must be high up on the list of the top ones. But first you have to find it: it is on a small, obscure street but not far from Skanstull, the metro station. In the husband and wife team he […]

Ulriksdals Wärdshus, Stockholm | BKWine Pick

One of Stockholm’s old classics! Classic food, classic building, classic surroundings (in the park of a royal palace). Very well made, excellent cooking and beautiful surroundings. And also the wine selection is leaning to the classic with an emphasis on France even if there is a reasonable selection of wines from other countries too. And […]

Sturehof, Stockholm | BKWine Pick

This must be considered as one of the classics in Stockholm today. Fetching inspiration in classic Parisian brasserie they are open almost around the clock and you can get a meal at any hour. Very informal (and busy) atmosphere. Excellent kitchen with some rather exclusive things and a few more reasonably priced. Very good wine […]
