Just two days after being proclaimed the twelfth best restaurant in the world on the controversial San Pellegrino’s World’s 50 Best Restaurants list as Frantzen/Lindeberg, Bjorn Frantzen and Daniel Lindeberg have announced they are splitting up with Frantzen retaining control of the eponymous restaurant and Lindeberg setting off to open a small bakery in Nacka, Sweden by the end of the year. The split is reportedly amicable and was said to have been in the works for some time. The change is effective today.
“We have had enormous fun over the years. We have created this restaurant together and our
paths will surely cross again in the future,” – Bjorn Frantzen.
“It has been five absolutely amazing years. But in the immediate future I want to put all the
focus on finding a small bakery in Nacka, with the ambition to open sometimes around the
end of 2013. I would like to take this opportunity to sincerely thank everyone who has worked,
been guests or otherwise been engaged in Frantzen/Lindeberg’s amazing journey,. I wish
Björn and the team all the luck in the future!” – Daniel Lindeberg
