Trio Restaurant, Malmö

During the latest visit to Sweden, a night at Trio Restaurant in Malmö could be found quite high up on the wish list.

Trio is a really small restaurant, with just a few tables, a notably sober interior decoration and a remarkably big reputation for just being 6 months old.

img_8611-2The trio consists of Erik Berne – restaurant manager and sommelier and chefs Sebastian Persson and Ola Rudin.
All of them have been working in well-known gourmet restaurants around the world before they congregated in Malmö to open their dream restaurant.

The cuisine is based on seasonal produce from near-by farmers and producers. Both elaborate and natural. Strong flavors and contrasting textures.
These factors – together with professional service and a nearly perfect (at times insanely stunning!) wine pairing makes for a good meal.
Add a good amount of nice company and some good laughs and you have an experience to remember!

 

 
Here are some of the best dishes from our tasting menu:

All in all we had a splendid evening, with very correct and friendly service and absolutely astonishing food. This will be a meal to remember during 2009. The atmosphere is very low-key with a decorating so sober it’s borderline dull. But you would be coming here for the food and wine anyway, not for the design.
