Björn Frantzén’s restaurant breaks with the minimalist tradition one associates with the New Nordic cooking. Having learned his trade while working with Alain Passard at L’Arpège and then with Pascal Barbot at L’Astrance, Frantzén offers dishes – monkfish served with miso-perfumed Jerusalem artichokes, fried mushrooms and almost burnt cream or charcoaled-grilled veal tartare served with sour cream, parsley soup, bone marrow and Osetra caviar – that are considerably more elaborate than what other Nordic chefs are serving. One reviewer described it as “really top-quality produce and delicious creative dishes: a must go for any food-loving individual traveling in Scandinavia,” while another lauded the “casual elegance” of the place, claiming it was “one of my top three meals of the year.”
