The 2012 edition of the Michelin Guide has awarded Copenhagen’s restaurants a total of 14 stars - which is more than any other Scandinavian city.
This year’s edition of the respected Guide awarded four new Michelin restaurants in Copenhagen, which now boasts 13 restaurants with a total of 14 Michelin stars.
World’s best restaurant Noma keeps the 2 stars and Rasmus Kofoed’s restaurant Geranium achieved a Michelin star. Rasmus Kofoed was named world’s best chef at Bocuse d’Or, considered the world championship for professional chefs.
Another new Michelin restaurant is Relæ with head chef Christian Puglisi, formerly chef at Noma. With Relæ getting a Michelin star, foodies have a new opportunity to enjoy affordable Michelin food in surroundings that break with conventional Michelin restaurants as Relæ is located in a rustic cellar in the up and coming trendy district of Nørrebro.
Restaurants Grønbech & Churchill and Den Røde Cottage are now Michelin restaurants.
