STUTTGART. At the end of September the culinary attractions in the city will be further enriched. Marc Mueller, who gleaned a Michel star for his cooking at 5 an der Bolzstraße, will be adding Nordic to the list of available cuisines. He waited from this spring on till he finally decided remain in Stuttgart and to join up with Sasa Mijailovic and Mladen Behtan having turned down several offers. They have leased Irma la Douce and renamed the lady Smögen. Mueller discovered his love of northern cooking whilst working for René Redzepi of Noma (Copenhagen) fame. He will be leaving molecular experiments behind him and concentrating on a Nordic manifesto using regional and German ingredients. "I have no desire for playing around but am aiming at a reduced and natural cuisine which only requires three components on the plate and is full of flavour." In Smögen, similar to 5, there will also be an á la carte menu and three further set menus: a vegetarian one, a regional one and a modern one. In addition to the classic wine flights there will also be a beer and a non-alcoholic flight available.
