Discover your inner gourmet in Copenhagen
Copenhagen has a myriad of world-class gourmet restaurants. This year, the city received no less than 22 Michelin stars. In global terms that is pretty unique for a city of about one million inhabitants.
Tourists from every corner of the world flock to our capital to experience its supremely high level of gastronomy. A total of 17 of Copenhagen’s gourmet restaurants are the proud recipients of the coveted stars. They include Kadeau, AOC, Alouette, Kokkeriet, Era Ora, Relæ, Formel B and Studio.
At the top of the hit parade are two restaurants, each of which holds an amazing three Michelin stars and on several occasions has been voted the best restaurant in the world.
Geranium is the first restaurant in Denmark to receive the maximum three stars in the Michelin guide. It came as no surprise to many people that the head chef, Rasmus Kofoed attained this accomplishment. Perhaps it should be mentioned that he was the only chef in the world to win a gold, silver and bronze medal in the Bocuse d’Or – the unofficial World Championship for chefs.
Kofoed’s culinary art is light, airy and improbably elegant, with a focus on vegetables and refined seasonings. The Geranium set menu for either lunch or dinner is a bombardment of dishes and will set you back DKK 2,500. Find Geranium here.
Noma does not really need any introduction. It was here, some years back, that René Redzepi put little Denmark firmly on the culinary world map. Three times in a row it was voted the best restaurant in the world by The World’s 50 Best Restaurants.
Since then, Noma has moved and built the restaurant’s ‘urban farm’, where over 50 chefs conjure up lunch and dinner. Expect a cornucopia of new flavours, textures and avant-garde in experimental dishes made principally of Nordic ingredients. Find Noma here.
