Swedish Restaurant Wins Worldwide Attention


BERLIN — Canada’s cold winters prevent year-round local cuisine, but the weather isn’t a problem at one buzz restaurant that sits 350 km from the Arctic Circle in Sweden’s Jämtland province.

Fäviken Magasinet is a 12-seat, dinner-only restaurant that offers a one-menu-for-all meal from Wednesday through Saturday.

And, René Redzepi of the Copenhagen restaurant Noma — which is currently listed as San Pellegrino’s best restaurant in the world — has already called the restaurant’s 27-year-old chef, Magnus Nilsson, his “successor,” according to German’s Die Welt newspaper as translated on worldcrunch.com.

The Die Welt report describes a restaurant where diners wait three months to book a seat and drive three hours to be served a 70-per-cent home-grown meal, which features products that are kept in winter storage. The only food that’s brought from further than 200 km away is salt (France), sugar (Denmark), alcoholic vinegar (southern Sweden), coffee and wine.
