Every August marks the start of foodie Christmas, as Michelin hands out its coveted stars to the world’s best restaurants. As of 2022, things will be done a little bit differently, as Michelin plans to reveal its new additions throughout the year. Here are Stockholm’s 15 Michelin stars of 2021, spread out over 10 restaurants.

Frantzén

What makes Frantzén, a 23-seat Michelin three-star restaurant – Sweden’s only – so memorable is not only the remarkable food and outstanding service but also the truly how the immersive dining experience involves all three floors of a Stockholm townhouse, designed by local interior architectural studio Joyn. Chef Björn Frantzén’s food is a unique hybrid of Nordic cuisine with Asian notes that will blow your mind.

Aloë

The residential neighbourhood of Hökmossen is an unlikely spot for a two Michelin star restaurant, but chefs Niclas Jönsson and Daniel Höglander effectively prove that Aloë’s success is found in other aspects than an A+ location. The warm and welcoming decor of the open kitchen and dining room takes its cues from the look and feel of a contemporary understated luxury villa. We highly recommend getting a seat at the bar to watch the chefs in action as they prepare a globally influenced menu with bold flavours and wonderful textures.

Gastrologik

Chefs and close friends Jacob Holmström and Anton Bjuhr have been at it for almost a decade at Gastrologik, a sleek inner-city restaurant that constantly keeps on reinventing and reevaluating itself. Gastrologik has chosen to work exclusively with Swedish produce and sources locally from small producers. For its latest iteration, the duo yet again worked with architect Jonas Lindvall for the pared-down look.

Oaxen Krog

Many were sad to learn the news that Agneta Green and Magnus Ek have decided to make the year 2022 their last at Oaxen Krog, a restaurant that they founded and ran for the last 27 years. With a deep commitment to sustainability, the real-life couple has worked tirelessly to encourage the highest levels of animal health and welfare and promote biological diversity in cultivation and agricultural ecosystems.

Agrikultur

At Agrikultur, a quaint and relaxed one Michelin star restaurant, Filip Fastén, Swedish Chef of the Year in 2014, has teamed up with chef Joel Åhlin to create an unmissable gastronomic experience. The pair serves up a fine-tuned and mouth-watering feast that celebrates the freshest, finest and most sustainably produced ingredients from selected local farms, ranches and dairies. The stylish restaurant is designed by interior architect Daniel Östman.

Aira – new entry

In the light and airy dining room of Aira, a restaurant located in Stockholm’s harbour, chef Tommy Myllymäki serves up a sensual feast for the eyes and taste buds. While the dishes are prepared using Nordic ingredients, inspiration comes from across the globe. Aira, by iconic architect Jonas Bohlin, was awarded ‘best Swedish interior design’ in 2020.

Ekstedt

Chef Niklas Ekstedt loves to play with fire at his eponymous Stockholm restaurant and takes on the New Nordic Cuisine with an added dose of charcoal, soot and smoke. His inspiration is his remote countryside upbringing in the tiny village of Järpen, and a set of 18th-century cookbooks that detail Swedish cooking before the advent of electricity. The result achieved from the heat of the wood-burning oven, fire pit and chargrill is no small feat. Make sure to reserve a seat at the counter for a firsthand view of the action.

Etoile

Located on an unassuming throughway on the outskirts of town, Etoile’s rough, exposed brick space sets the unlikely scene for an outstanding dining experience. Inspired by their travels across the world, chefs Jonas Lagerström and Danny Falkeman have composed an inventive, playful and flavoursome 20-course menu (with accompanying beverages) that are far from the traditional fine-dining fare.

Operakällaren

A favourite hangout among artists, politicians and celebrities in the 1930s, Operakällaren, set within the historic Opera House, retains its history as one of Sweden’s most famous dining rooms. And what a dining room it is. The original gilded oak wall panelling and chandeliers are all still part of the grand restaurant that under Chef de Cuisine Viktor Westerlind specialises in traditional French dishes with a contemporary flair.

Sushi Sho

One of Stockholm’s smallest sushi bars is also its best. Sushi Sho, a hole-in-the-wall that can seat only twelve guests at a time, is the brainchild and culinary playground of Japanese-Swedish chef Carl Ishizaki, also called the ‘sushi jedi’. Meals are served omakase-style, which is a form of Japanese dining in which guests leave themselves in the hands of a chef and receive a meal which is seasonal, elegant, artistic and uses the finest ingredients available.
