In The News: Chef Magnus Nilsson’s Fäviken To Close By End Of YearMay 10, 2019
Fäviken, the popular eatery by Magnus Nilsson – which was featured on Netflix’s “Chef’s Table” – will close at the end of 2019. The 24-seat restaurant opened in 2009 and is known for its tasting menu featuring locally harvested ingredients.
In an Instagram post earlier this week, Nilsson made the announcement that this was his last season with the establishment.
“I hope that my last half-year at Fäviken is going to be business as usual, and that the people come here to enjoy Fäviken and what we have to offer, not because it will end soon, but because it is a magnificent restaurant experience right now,” he said.
CNN, the LA Times and others reported on the closing.
