The Elk has been the talk of the town for quite some time and when they finally opened this week they take an already impressive restaurant district in Stockholm (Old Town holds great restaurants like Djuret, Pubologi, 19 Glas and of course – Frantzén/Lindeberg) to a completely new level. And I am sure, by the looks of the menu and the quality of the food I had there at a ”test dinner” last weekend, combined with dream team staffing in all parts of the restaurant, the beer and cocktail rooms that offer an ambitious range of drinks as well as the only wine bar – Gaston – worth mentioning in Stockholm – The Flying Elk will scare the shit out of many other restaurateurs in Sweden’s capital.
”I have always dreamed about cooking English pub food, doing it my way” chef Björn Frantzén says and continues, ”together with Claes Grännsjö, who is recruited from the one Michelin starred restaurant Kock & Vin in Gothenburg, we want to create a place serving delicious food but where the atmosphere is not that stiff”.
It seems like Björn Frantzéns dream is about to come true.
Welcome to Stockholm, welcome to The Flying Elk.
