Lisa Yan cooks, lives the American Dream Locavore cuisine is at the height of fashion in today’s dining scene, but farm-to-table restaurants seem to exist only in cosmopolitan cities or aggressively hard-to-reach locales. At the vanguard of the voguish New Nordic movement is Magnus Nilsson’s Fäviken in remote Åre, Sweden, which grows all its own food despite being nearly as far north as Fairbanks, Alaska.

For Nebraska, the diner is listed with “Come for the sandwiches, stay for the house-made cinnamon buns.” Other awards Meredith has received are the WOW award, being included on HomeTown-Gothenburg, and #3 diner on the Lincoln highway route in the state of Nebraska.
