Matbaren is the more casual version of  the adjoining Matsalen (2 Michelin stars) by Mathias Dahlgren at Grand Hotel in Stockholm. An inviting U-shaped counter offers an even more informal experience and seating for drop ins. The menu may change up to twice daily, which is all a part of Dahlgren’s “natural food” philosophy, which places seasonal food at the center of his creations.

As Dahlgren himself says, each dish is like a small puzzle that requires patience, time and creativity to complete. Because he is so focused on drawing out the best of what it is in season, Dahlgren’s menu changes regularly, though he keeps the same five-part structure: “Produce and products from our country”, “From other countries,” From the plant world”, “Cheeses” and “Desserts.”  Highly recommended!
