Copenhagen's Geranium Outstrips Noma With Third Michelin Star

Copenhagen eatery Geranium has overtaken fellow famed Denmark restaurant Noma by claiming a prized three-star rating from foodie bible the Michelin Guide.

Noma, which was named best restaurant in the world by Britain’s Restaurant magazine in 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2014, maintained its two-star rating in the latest Nordic edition of the French-based guide.

In winning its third star Geranium - a biofriendly restaurant opened in 2007 by former Bocuse d’Or winning chef Rasmus Kofoed (pictured) - became the first in Denmark to do so.

According to, the latest Michelin ratings did not surprise gastronomes in Denmark.

"Noma makes food into a plaything; its dishes are too all over the place to get three stars. They serve entertaining cuisine, but there is a little too much banter and jokes for Michelin," the editor-in-chief of Gastro magazine, Jesper Uhrup Jensen, told DR public television.
