The four new restaurants on the list are:

Aira, Stockholm

According to the Michelin Guide: “In a delightful harbour setting sits this striking restaurant offering great space and comfort. Opened in 2020, it’s an ideal spot for escaping city life. Guests walk through the open kitchen to get to the tables where they’re greeted by a charming service team. The beautiful dishes boast the occasional Asian note and make the superb ingredients really shine.”

Äng, Tvååker

According to the Michelin Guide: “Three siblings – third generation dairy farmers – have created a delightful destination restaurants complete with a vineyard, hotel and spa. The no-waste surprise tasting menu uses fantastic seasonal produce from the surrounding Halland region and the resulting skilfully prepared dishes are delicate, balanced and full of flavour. Gracious service adds to the experience.”

Project, Gothenburg

According to the Michelin Guide: “This cosy restaurant is personally run by a husband and wife team, whose balanced, seasonal tasting menu offers dishes which are refined, original and full of flavour. The eloquent team proudly explain the components of each dish with a smile; from the delicious bread which takes five days to make to the homemade butter which takes two.”

Hotell Borgholm, Öland

According to the Michelin Guide: “The team at this historic hotel’s restaurant provide a warm welcome and its wine list is a treasure trove. Tasting menus showcase seasonal ingredients from the beautiful island of Öland; much of it from their own delightful garden, and the elaborate dishes boast flavours and original combinations.”
