Vesper Bar at The Dorchester
Enrica Rocca Cooking School London
Studio Frantzén is Björn Frantzén’s newest restaurant, at the very top of Harrods. It serves the Swedish chef’s critically acclaimed Nordic gastronomy with Asian influences – all set in a luxurious and contemporary interpretation of Scandinavian design.
Open until late, with an incredible rooftop terrace, the space houses over 150 seats and diners can expect a fully immersive experience. Echoing the aesthetic of the flagship three-Michelin starred restaurant Frantzén in Stockholm; everything from the music and bespoke tableware to the hand-painted mural has been meticulously designed to create a harmonious atmosphere, while every attention has been made to offer impeccable and knowledgeable service.
There’s a buzzing dining area lined with intimate booths, a private dining area, and space at the kitchen counter promising a front-row seat to culinary excellence. And for those looking for a late-night drink, there are two bars – including one with sweeping views over the city’s skyline – serving signature cocktails and spirits made with premium Nordic ingredients.
While Studio Frantzén has opted for a relaxed à la carte menu, it bears all the hallmarks of the chef’s world-renowned style: understated class, bold flavours, and a carefully honed appreciation of culinary balance.
Taking its lead from Frantzén’s open-flame kitchen in Stockholm, Studio Frantzén will be serving dishes ‘from the fireplace’. The grilled porterhouse steak with pine-scented bone marrow and oxtail ponzu is as rich as it is refined, while the blistered lobster with curry hollandaise, pomegranate-infused mirin, dried cloudberries, ginger, and coriander butter will occupy your dreams for weeks to come.
You’ll no doubt discover new flavours – fermented lingonberries, smoked pea soy or crispy lichens – and leave the restaurant wanting more. Not to worry, Björn Frantzén and his executive head chef Marcus Rohlen have curated a varied all-day menu, as suitable for a quick lunch as a decadent three-course supper.
