SAN SEBASTIAN, Spain, May 20, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Today Opinionated About Dining announced their authoritative Top 100+ European, which saw Restaurant Frantzén secure first place.
Newly adorned with their prestigious third star from 2018 - a first for Sweden - this only further affirmed their presence in the world of gastronomy.
The unveiling of this year's list remained equally dispersed across Europe, with no single country dominating the prestigious top 10. Schloss Schauenstein, Switzerland narrowly missed out on coming first for a second year running sliding into second place. Asador Etxebarri, Spain on the other hand, held firmly onto their third best spot from 2018, proving that the simple but refined art of grilling.
L'Arpège from France and Restaurant Quique Dacosta from Spain are yet to be seen absent from the top 10 since the first ever 2013 list and their incredible achievements have been recognised by this year's Five Consecutive Years in the Top 10 awards.
Newcomers have likewise been given the spotlight this year with Restaurant Barr from Denmark being crowned Best New Restaurant.
Lido 84 Italy and Daniel Berlin from Sweden made huge leaps from 2018, jumping from 21st and 29th to 10th and 5th place respectively,
Noma from Denmark have also made a bold comeback with Noma 2.0's first appearance on the lists by landing in ninth place this year. Others on the top 10 include: La Marine from France and Le Calandre from Italy.
Steve Plotnicki, OAD founder, says 'From the acknowledgement that Bjorn Frantzen's restaurant deserves to be named the number one restaurant in Europe despite being open for a mere 18 months, to the long list of wonderful new restaurants making their debut on the list, the OAD reviewers have once again demonstrated that they are at the forefront of the European fine dining scene."
