a ntligen says certainly many. Michelin has dared to send their testers outside of the big cities in the North. The result was positive – albeit not particularly surprising to all of us who are interested in the tavern life in the North.
Already last year would the French wizard have broadened their horizons in the Nordic countries. But then it just became Malmo and Aarhus that was added. When they take the plunge is the star rain still limited. Michelin’ve historically not been particularly generous with stars to Sweden and the other Nordic countries. Everyone who traveled around France, for example, and eaten at the one-star restaurants know that the level of most of them is far below the Swedish and Nordic restaurant with a star.
For me it is incomprehensible that no Nordic restaurant received three stars before. Nordic cuisine’ve nearly ten years been one of the most trend-setting in the world. Now came true the first three stars two times. But no one in Sweden – which is not only disappointing but also a great injustice, I think.

both Geranium and Maaemo is worthy of its three but probably had it fitted with three stars for both Frantzén and Oaxen. And probably ought Esperanto been rewarded with both one and two stars to. I can understand their disappointment.
And Noma who were not first with three stars in the Nordic countries have to wonder what happened. Is it just for them to turn to the next year, it feels strange. It was well suited with a triple star anyway?
The four taverns now got a star outside the cities will certainly feel extremely happy. But both Fäviken and Daniel Berlin has been working for so many years without stars to become accustomed to do without. And both have been able to build a global reputation on their own.

A star is not wrong – but in these cases it does not mean anything. In Borgholm and Växjö will be the stars in handy when both Hotel Borgholm and PM & amp; Friends have big gourmet hotel attached to its restaurants. And this is very encouraging for the Swedish tourism industry as very gourmet tourism is becoming increasingly important in the world.
The new stars is not particularly surprising, with one major exception: A small sushihak Upplandsgatan in Stockholm got a star. Very unexpected, although the pub is enormously hyped of all sushi lovers in the capital. More so, it can be really exciting to open Michelin Nordic Guide for a year.
