Stockholm: Esperanto

View on our walk to dinner

We were curious to try the restaurant Esperanto (now permanently closed) for dinner while in Stockholm. Esperanto is a one Michelin star restaurant that specializes in a fusion of Japanese and Swedish cuisine.

Our menu:

‘Season no 26’

“We turn’ to the ocean”

The winter theme is with a maritime focus. Together with the preserved late summer and autumn harvest we create a gastronomy that is “here and now” with an echo of last season.
