Today Eater returns to Stockholm, Sweden to focus on 10 newish restaurants that have been garnering some serious buzz. Once again food and wine writer Per Styregård has shared his picks for the hottest opening of the past 12 months.
It’s been a busy year for the city’s biggest names: Niklas Ekstedt now has a wine bar (Tyge & Sessil); Klas Lindberg finally has his own place (Portal); and fine-dining star Mathias Dahlgren focuses on vegetables at his latest venture (Rutabaga). Alums from top restaurants in the country like Fäviken and Frantzén are leading the pack, whether with on-trend cafes (Café Nizza) or pitch-perfect bars (Folii). There’s also a new destination for raw-bar fans (the Fishery), a small plates destination with a cheeky sense of humor (Punk Royale Café), and a charmer that has convinced dining obsessives to head outside the city limits (Skåpmat).
