UE, how would you rate Bon Lloc? I might have a chance to visit it soon.

Unfortunately, Bon Lloc has since closed. However, Chef Dahlgren told me that he planned on opening another, more down-scaled restaurant. I believe it has already opened, or will be opening soon.

Anyone have any idea?

Mathias Dahlgren will be opening the new restaurant at the Grand Hotel in Stockholm sometime this spring. In his own words, "the goal is to create one of the best restaurants in Europe"... Bold statement... :cool:
