Also gaining two stars is Oaxen Krog, set in a delightful waterside location in Stockholm’s Djurgården. Here, says editor of the Michelin Guides Rebecca Burr, “the finest ingredients are prepared with clarity and balance to create beautiful dishes with real depth of flavour.” New addition Aarhus is now home to 3 one-star restaurants, Frederikshøj, Gastromé and Substans, and Malmö includes Ambiance à Vindåkra, Bloom in the Park and Vollmers all with one star apiece. Also included in the new selection for Aarhus and Malmö are 4 Bib Gourmands: 2 in each city. The Bib Gourmand is awarded to restaurants that offer excellent value for money and there are now 30 in the Nordic guide in total. Rebecca said: “We are excited to be able to share with our readers our recommendations for restaurants and hotels in these two cities. The new wave of Scandinavian kitchens has really raised the bar in this part of the world. Aarhus is a vibrant city with a diverse gastronomy, whilst the gloriously fertile region of Skåne puts a wealth of top quality produce on Malmö’s doorstep.” Other newly awarded restaurants are one-star Volt, a friendly, intimate restaurant in Stockholm run by a young but experienced team; one-star SK Mat & Människor in Gothenburg; a cosy restaurant with an open kitchen serving exciting dishes packed with flavour; and Koka, the reinvented Kock & Vin, also in Gothenburg, offering finesse, flavour and plenty of fish.Restuarant AOC The Nordic guide caters for every type of visitor, from business traveller to tourist, and recommends the best establishments across all categories of comfort and price – from lively bistros and intimate townhouses to celebrated restaurants and luxurious hotels. The Michelin Nordic Cities Guide 2015 will be available in bookshops from Friday 27th February 2015.
